Celtic travel to bitter rivals Rangers on Sunday in match day 30 of the Scottish Premiership. Despite currently leading their neighbours by 6 points, Celtic will be wary of the excellent run of recent form Rangers have been able to put together.

Graeme Murty’s men have won their last four games scoring 13 goals in the process. However, the Hoops know that three points at Ibrox would all but secure the title.

Brendan Rodgers will be without a number of key players for the trip. Stuart Armstrong (hernia), Nir Bitton (knee), Dedryck Boyata (groin), Craig Gordon (knee) and Leigh Griffiths (calf) are all expected to miss out.
