Celtic have already lost as many Scottish Premiership games as they did in the entirety of last season.

The Bhoys romped home to a 13 point title win for their seventh consecutive league victory, but all signs here suggest that they’ll have a much tougher task of it this time around.

The issues of lack of transfer funds, Dedrick Boyata’s refusal to play and subsequent ostracism and Moussa Dembele’s protracted departure have dogged their start to the season, but they looked comfortable at 1-0 today and should have secured the points.

Leigh Griffiths scored in the first half away from home, but that Rugby Park support had much to cheer about after the restart.

Chris Burke equalised after the hour mark, leaving plenty of time for a winner.

Both teams chased a late second, and it was Stuart Findlay of Killie who scored it from a set-piece in the third minute of added time.

After the game, beleaguered manager Brendan Rodgers bemoaned the defending for first goal, with no-one getting tight to Burke before he struck gold.

As for losing the game to a corner, Rodgers termed it as ‘very disappointing’.

Celtic are now fifth in the league table, six points behind Hearts who are the only unbeaten team remaining. But next on the horizon is a midweek League Cup game against St. Johnstone.
