Brendan Rodgers has named his Celtic team to take on Kilmarnock this afternoon.

The Hoops have made the short journey down the M77 for the last-16 Viaplay Cup tie at Rugby Park.

Celtic will begin the defence of their trophy at 3pm this afternoon, as Derek McInnes' aims to knock the champions out of the tournament.

Cameron Carter-Vickers, Reo Hatate, and Stephen Welsh were all injury blows to the Hoops prior to this one. 

And while they have a few key players missing, Celtic's team still boasts tremendous talent, which is highlighted with a debut for new £3million defender Gustaf Lagerbielke.

Here are the line-ups for today's game...

KILMARNOCK XI: Dennis, Mayo, Deas, Findlay, Ndaba, Lyons, Watson, Magennis, Armstrong, Kennedy, Watkins

Subs: O'Hara, Wright, Davies, Donnelly, Polworth, McKenzie, Murray, Wales, Vassell

CELTIC XI: Hart, Ralston, Lagerbielke, Nawrocki, Taylor, McGregor, O'Riley, Holm, Abada, Maeda, Kyogo

Subs: Bain, Scales, Haksabanovic, Yang, Turnbull, Kwon, Iwata, Bernabei, Forrest
