Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has picked his starting eleven and substitutes to welcome Glasgow rivals Rangers to Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership this afternoon.


The Bhoys boast a six point lead at the top of the league table and are strong favourites to clinch the crown in Postecoglou’s first season in charge.



Celtic have won eleven of their last 12 league games, conceding just six goals in the process, and will look to send out a statement by seeing off Rangers.


Postecoglou is without right-back Josip Juranovic.



Joe Hart is in goal for Celtic this afternoon, while Anthony Ralston and Greg Taylor slot in as full-backs for the derby. Central defence sees a pairing of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt.


Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley will look to boss midfield, while Jota, Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda lead the attack.


Postecoglou has options on the bench if needed, including Nir Bitton and Tom Rogic.
