Rangers host Celtic in the first Old Firm of the campaign, with both sides desperate to steal a march on their rivals in the race for this season’s Scottish Premiership title.

The Gers head into this one off the back of a goalless draw against Armenian champions FC Alashkert on Thursday evening - a result which proved to be enough to book them a place in the group stage of this year’s Europa League.

What’s the team news ahead of Rangers vs Celtic?

Rangers were hit with something of a Covid scare ahead of their Europa League trip to face FC Alashkert in midweek, with several first team players having to isolate.

The likes of James Tavernier, Ryan Kent, and Allan McGregor were among that contingent, while manager Steven Gerrard also stayed at home for the tie.

Gers assistant Gary McAllister did confirm in a press conference that Scott Arfield should be available after suffering a minor toe injury in Armenia, however.

Ange Postecoglou has fewer issues to contend with, and aside from long-term absentee Christopher Jullien, should have no new injury concerns.
