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


Celtic have confirmed their side and substitutes for this afternoon’s Glasgow derby against Rangers at Ibrox.


Brendan Rodgers takes his side to Ibrox sitting top of the Scottish Premiership table, a point ahead of the Gers.



Rangers though have played a game fewer than Celtic and Rodgers will be well aware that victory at Ibrox is needed to keep his side in charge of the title race.


Celtic ran out 1-0 winners on their last trip to Ibrox, in September, while the last meeting between the two sides, in December, saw the Bhoys claim a 2-1 victory.



Joe Hart, who is to retire at the end of the season, is in goal for Celtic today, while Rodgers picks a back four of Alistair Johnston, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Liam Scales and Greg Taylor.


In midfield, Celtic go with Tomoki Iwata, Matt O’Riley and Reo Hatate, while leading the attacking charge are Daizen Maeda, Nicolas Kuhn and Kyogo.



If changes are needed during the 90 minutes then Rodgers has options on the bench and they include Adam Idah and James Forrest.
