LEIGH GRIFFITHS, who scored his first goal in five months in the 2-1 Scottish Cup win over Partick Thistle on Saturday, starts tonight’s Premiership encounter against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Neil Lennon has kept faith with the 29-year-old comeback striker who will partner Odsonne Edouard in the middle of the attack.

The Hoops boss has made three changes to the side that started at Firhill with Kristoffer Ajer returning to play alongside Jozo Simunovic who made an early substitute’s appearance for the injured Nir Bitton against the Jags.

French ace Christopher Jullien is also in at the heart of the rearguard against Alex Dyer’s side.

Australian international playmaker Tom Rogic drops out with Jonny Hayes coming in.

Former Killie ace Greg Taylor, who joined the Hoops from the Ayrshire outfit in a £2.25million switch on transfer deadline day, starts on the bench.

TEAM: Forster; Simunovic, Jullien, Ajer; Frimpong, Hayes, Brown, Ntcham, McGregor; Griffiths, Edouard. Subs: Gordon, Taylor, Bayo, Klimala, Bauer, Arzani and Johnston.
