NEW Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke wants his team to stage an action replay of their Ibrox display when they take on Celtic at Parkhead tomorrow afternoon.

Chris Burke scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser in a 1-1 draw to help ease potty Pedro towards his P45.

Now Clarke is preparing for the challenge against Brendan Rodgers’ side who are looking to emulate Celtic’s own record of 62 unbeaten games against domestic opposition which was set over a century ago.

The former Scotland international defender said: “We have to go there with confidence and belief that we can get something out of the game.


“You also have to recognise that Celtic are very strong, their record since Brendan went there tells you they are very strong.

“We have to go there and make it a difficult an afternoon for Celtic.

“It’s important we put on a good show. Hopefully, there’ll be a good Kilmarnock support as there was on Wednesday at Ibrox.”

Ex-Celtic youngster Stuart Findlay, on loan from Newcastle, is back on familiar territory.

The centre-half added: “You respect Celtic, but you have to go into it the same way as you’d prepare for any other game.

“Don’t worry about their record, don’t worry about going to Celtic Park.

“Just worry about putting in a good performance for Kilmarnock and let the fans go home happy at the end of the 90 minutes.”
