GREG TAYLOR returns to left-back to face his former club Kilmarnock at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Scotland international defender has missed the last three outings after sustaining an injury in the 5-0 Scottish Cup win over Buckie Thistle last month.

Taylor comes in for Alexandro Bernabei who drops to the substitutes’ while Brendan Rodgers again gives the nod to on-loan Adam Idah to lead the attack in the Republic of Ireland international’s first home appearance.

TEAM: Hart; Ralston, Welsh, Scales, Taylor; McGregor, Kyogo, O’Riley; Maeda, Idah, Palma. Subs: Bain, Kuhn, Yang, Nawrocki, Oh, Tomoki, Bernabei, Bernardo and Kelly.

Earlier today, we asked how much you could remember about past Hoops’ encounters with the Ayrshire club in CQN’s fun five-minute quiz to test your knowledge.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.
