Celtic shall be aiming to climb to the top of the SPL table in midweek, where a victory against their Old Firm rivals will see them leapfrog Rangers into pole position.
The Hoops have been chasing them throughout the entire campaign, but now they have the chance to achieve that feat in front of their own fans at Celtic Park, providing them with the perfect backdrop.
Ange Postecoglou guided his team to a 1-0 victory at the weekend against Dundee United, in what was a hard-fought game where a 90th-minute goal from Liel Abada provided the difference.
Celtic managed to achieve that despite being down to 10 men following Nir Britton‘s red card, which means that the Hoops will be without the central midfielder on Wednesday night.
However, the squad do head into this game with a 13-match match undefeated streak behind them in all competitions, which gives them as much confidence as possible for what will be their biggest contest of the season so far.
Celtic could be boosted by the return of club captain Callum McGregor for the derby game, after he returned to training this week following his facial injury, which could be important following Briton’s red card.
Daizen Maeda is also expected to be in contention to play according to Postecoglou, providing the Hoops boss with further options as they head into the important encounter.
Rangers fans who were hoping to see deadline signing Aaron Ramsey make his debut will be disappointed, as the former Juventus and Arsenal midfielder will not be in the squad for this match, as was confirmed by the manager.
Filip Helander is also unavailable for the Gers due to injury, but the league leaders will be able to welcome back Leon Balogun, who has been confirmed as fit and ready to play.
