RANGERS v CELTIC BETTING PREVIEWRangers have raised their form significantly in the recent period. After the really poor showing in the 2-0 reverse at Hearts back in December, they've won four games in a row over Christmas to cement their position in 2nd place. Anyway, they failed to make it five wins in a row on Wednesday evening at McDiarmid Park against St. Johnstone (1:1).
The Gers have already met the Bhoys this season and it was Celtic who claimed the bragging rights, humiliating their fiercest rivals with a 5-1 win at Parkhead. Rangers were also brushed aside by Celtic at Hampden Park in the League Cup. Having gone 15 months without losing at Ibrox, Rangers have reason for optimism.
Manager Mark Warburton faces a genuine defensive headache considering that captain Lee Wallace and veteran Clint Hill are both rated doubtful. He could also welcome back Jordan Rossiter to the squad but Nico Kranjcar remains sidelined through injury.
Celtic go into this match on the back of 15 successive Scottish Premiership wins. They comfortable 2–0 win over Ross County at Celtic Park last Wednesday and have an impressive record of 18 wins in 19 league matches this season. The Bhoys are already 16 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premier League standings.
Brendan Rodgers is hoping that left-back Kieran Tierney is fit to feature here after recovering from injury. Moussa Dembele should be preferred to Leigh Griffiths up front, but Tom Rogic is out with an ankle problem, although Callum McGregor returns.
RANGERS v CELTIC PROBABLE LINEUPSRangers (4-3-3): Foderingham – Tavernier, Kiernan, Hill, Wilson – Windass, Holt, Halliday – Miller, Garner, McKay.
Celtic (4-2-3-1): Gordon – Gamboa, Lustig, Sviatchenko, Izaguirre – Brown, Armstrong – Forrest, McGregor, Sinclair – Dembele.
