What is the latest team news?

Rangers manager Philippe Clement continues to be without loan signing Oscar Cortes, long-term victim Danilo and experienced midfielder Ryan Jack through injury, while Ridvan Yilmaz is facing a late fitness battle after picking up a recent knock during the international break. Kieran Dowell is also expected to miss out, despite returning to full training last week.

Abdallah Sima and Ross McCausland are both back in contention after coming off the bench against Hibs last weekend, while Kemar Roofe will be hopeful of returning to the matchday squad.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that skipper Callum McGregor will be passed fit in time after being deliberately omitted from last Sunday’s league clash with Livingston to allow him extra time to shake off an injury. Reo Hatate and Cameron Carter-Vickers were both surprise inclusions on Livingston’s artificial surface last weekend, with Hatate, in particular, impressing on his comeback.

Winger Luis Palma is also nearing a return to competitive action following a recent spell on the treatment table, but his place in the starting XI isn’t nailed on due to the current impressive form of January signing Nicolas Kuhn.
