Celtic can clinch the
SPL title with a win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. But they may have to do it without some key men Alan Thompson is out with a hamstring problem,
while Chris Sutton is doubtful with a groin injury.
Kilmarnock, who have restricted the number of Celtic fans at the match, may be without captain Freddie Dindeleux, who is struggling with a virus.
Strikers Danny Invincibile and Gary McSwegan are available after returning to training following injury. Victory for Celtic would give them their
third league title in four years under manager Martin O'Neill. But the Irishman has hinted he needs more players next season if his side are to
maintain the progress made under his stewardship.O'Neill's men were knocked out of the Uefa Cup last week by Villarreal, with key men like Thompson,
Sutton and John Hartson all missing. With the departures of talisman Henrik Larsson and Liam Miller this summer, O'Neill's squad will require some
major additions if they are to compete domestically and on the continent.
