Kilmarnock's visit to Celtic Park has been moved back to Wednesday, 29 January, meaning Neil Lennon's team will not play between 5 and 18 January.

A statement from the league read: "The Scottish Premiership match between Celtic and Kilmarnock, scheduled for Saturday January 11, has been rearranged for Wednesday January 29 after the SPFL board agreed to a request from Celtic."

Premiership clubs agreed in June that they would be able to postpone games on January 11 or 18, in the absence of a winter break.

Meanwhile, first team coach Danny McGrain felt the team produced a professional display in their 7-0 rout of Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.

Celtic were facing a potentially hazardous fourth-round tie following their exit from the Champions League on Tuesday, but McGrain was impressed by the application of the players.

McGrain said: "Everything just seemed to go right, everything was well-oiled and everyone seemed to be on the same wavelength, playing the ball and keeping the ball. It was just a great 90 minutes.

"The manager was happy with the first 45 minutes. Sometimes the tempo can drop a bit in the second half but we picked it up again and scored two good goals.

"Hearts could not keep pace with us and we just ran over them."
