Equalled the club record of 10 consecutive clean sheets in the league.

FISHER (7) Another fine display by the young right-back. Was not, though, tested hugely by visitors who disappointed going forward. AMBROSE (6) Dealt with the limited threat posed by Robbie Muirhead and William Gros with ease. Did not stray upfield often.

VAN DIJK (8) The Dutchman was, once again, excellent. Swatted aside any opposing player with the temerity to challenge him. Advanced with purpose.

IZAGUIRRE (7) The Honduran's fine form continues. Buzzed up and down the left wing all evening. Well and truly back to his best. FORREST (7) The winger created his side's opening two goals in the first half. Gave Kilmarnock left-back Jeoroen Tesselaar an evening he will want to forget in a hurry.

BROWN (7) Denied a goal by Craig Samson on the half-hour mark. That apart, the Celtic captain bossed the central midfield with complete authority.

LEDLEY (7) Timed his run into the Kilmarnock box perfectly to snare the first goal. Nutmegged Sammy Clingan audaciously shortly afterwards. Set up his side's third with a deft chip.

MULGREW (7) Started on the left side of midfield. Hit the inside of the post with a shot in the second half. Made amends with a fine goal shortly thereafter.

COMMONS (6) The forward was his usual box of tricks. Unusually for him, however, was unable to convert any chances. Missed an absolute sitter late on.

PUKKI (5) Netted against Hibs at Easter Road on Sunday. Squandered a gilt-edged chance to do so again before being substituted. Replacements: BALDE (4) Scored an injury-time goal thanks to a Samson slip-up.

BOERRIGTER (3) Came on for the last 15 minutes or so. Was hardly involved.

JOHANSEN (3) Made his Parkhead debut when he replaced Charlie Mulgrew near the end of the game.
