Fixture: Celtic vs Rangers
Competition: Scottish Premiership
Kick-off: 12:00 (UK time)

Celtic have officially confirmed their side to host fierce Glasgow rivals Rangers at Paradise in a Scottish Premiership fixture this afternoon.

The Bhoys sit top of the Premiership table with a 100 per cent record going into the match against their rivals and Brendan Rodgers will be keen to strike the first blow to Rangers' title hopes by seeing his side notch up a comfortable victory in front of the home support.

The big news is that Leigh Griffiths misses out, robbing Celtic of a potent goal threat. In an effort to get the job done, Rodgers picks Moussa Dembele up front, while he will be supported by Scott Sinclair and James Forrest. Tom Rogic plays too, while Scott Brown and Nir Bitton aim to dominate in midfield.

Kolo Toure brings experience to the backline, while Dorus de Vries is in goal. On the bench, Rodgers can call for Patrick Roberts if needed, with new signing Cristian Gamboa also an option.
