[Teams] Celtic vs Rangers: Confirmed Line-Ups From Celtic Park For Old Firm Derby

On Sunday, Celtic and Rangers will once again face off in one of the most combustible fixtures in world football: the Old Firm derby.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers will be keen earning all three points against Rangers new boss, and his former former Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard.

In doing this, the Northern Irish boss will have to field some of his best players, with the Hoops enduring somewhat a torrid transfer of no activity this summer.

The two Scottish giants both find a way to the Europa League group stages on Thursday night, and now they both have to go again in the season’s most important fixture.

Celtic have a couple of injury as they head into the derby. They Tom Rogic suffering with a knee injury that has been affecting his hamstring, which should see him starting this game from the bench, if he’s even makes the team at all.

With Odsonee Edouard declared fit, Celtic will likely make just one change from their team that played Suduva on Thursday, then, with James Forrest coming in to replace Michael Johnston.

Dedryck Boyata will also start at centre-back after he netted the winner for Celtic last weekend against Hamilton, while Brown and Olivier Ntcham should maintain their spot in the midfield, with Tom Rogic getting dropped on the bench.

Scott Sinclair seemed to be an out-of-favour under Rodgers, but Moussa Dembele’s departure to Lyon, Rodgers will be left with no option to start the former Chelsea ace.

Leigh Griffiths will serve as the lone striker after scoring his 100th goal for the club against the Lithuanian minnows on Thursday.
