But the ex-Celtic and Scotland goalkeeper says the Killie front man has no idea what is going on at Parkhead.
Alan Rough told PLZ Soccer: “I don’t know where Kris is coming from saying there is a split in the dressing room.

“For me it’s the players that are in that Celtic team now that wouldn’t have been during the invincible run.
“There’s inexperienced players at Celtic who are finding it difficult to know what it’s like to win every week.”
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers earlier slammed the ex-Rangers striker’s comments, saying: “Kris would be better suited trying to get back in the Kilmarnock team.”
The Killie ace claimed the split formed after Dedryck Boyata and Olivier Ntcham were denied moves away from the club in the summer.
