The Hoops playmaker is in outstanding form of late, scoring six goals in nine games going into today’s game.
It was expected to be a tough match for Brendan Rodgers’ men as they welcomed Steve Clarke and his table-topping Killie team.

With the win, Celtic move two points clear at the top of the Premiership with two games in hand – and the manner of the 5-1 victory suggests Rodgers’ team are in quality form.
They next play against Red Bull Salzburg on Thursday night in a game that could see them through to the Europa League last 32.
