Sunday, Rugby Park, 12.45, live Sky Sports 4
CELTIC duly closed the gap on Rangers at the top of the SPL to four points by trouncing St Mirren – but it should be back to seven on Sunday.
Rangers return to the Rugby Park venue where they so convincingly won the title last season and Ally McCoist will know how vital it is for his side to stamp their authority once again over their Old Firm rivals.
Rangers have reacted to last week's failure to break down St Johnstone by signing former Aberdeen winger Sone Aluko and he could start as Gers try to make up for the loss of Steven Naismith.
Killie have only won twice at home this season and conceded nine goals to Inverness and Celtic in their last two league matches at Rugby Park so anything but a Rangers win would be a huge surprise.
Gers are aiming to equal a club record of 15 away wins in a row and have won 14 of their last 16 at Kilmarnock.
Gers' last two trips to Rugby Park produced 11 goals and William Hill offer over 4.5 goals at 9-2.
Killie to be leading at half-time and not win as they did against Celtic last month pays 10-1 with William Hill.
Kyle Lafferty hit a hat-trick as Gers clinched the title at Killie on the last day of the season and is 25-1 with Hills to do it again.
Aluko is 9-1 with Skybet to net first on his debut while Killie's top scorer Paul Heffernan is 9-1 (various) to bag the opener and 10-3 with William Hill to net.
