Celtic vs Rangers preview

The Old Firm is always a tempestuous affair, with full-blooded tackles to be expected from the first minute and red cards a fairly regular occurrence. With the infamously fiery Scott Brown having departed for Aberdeen after 14 years of service, Celtic will be looking for someone else to stamp their authority in midfield.

But Nir Bitton was sent off in the Bhoys’ last-gasp win against Dundee United last time out so will miss out through suspension, giving Rangers the opportunity to try and dominate the middle of the park.

Celtic’s form is imperious but that often goes out the window in derby matches, so it will be interesting to see how this clash plays out. Rangers will be looking to make amends after dropping four points in recent games against Aberdeen and Ross County.

The game comes too soon for new arrival Aaron Ramsey with Gers boss Giovanno van Bronkhorst confirming the midfielder will not be in the squad for Wednesday’s game.
