Rangers have announced their side and substitutes to play host to fierce rivals Celtic in a crunch Scottish Premiership game this afternoon.

Gers boss Steven Gerrard saw his men beaten in the earlier encounter between the two teams at Parkhead this season, but knows victory would put Rangers level on points with Celtic heading into the winter break.

The Rangers boss has options on the bench if he needs to make changes, including Glenn Middleton and Kyle Lafferty.
