Brendan Rodgers and his former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard go head-to-head in the first Old Firm derby of the season on Sunday.

On Thursday night, Celtic and Rangers confirmed their places in the UEFA Europa League group stage. Now they go into battle at Celtic Park in the first Old Firm derby of the season.

Former West Bromwich Albion and Kilmarnock enforcer Youssuf Mulumbu became the Bhoys’ fifth summer signing this week and could go straight into Brendan Rodgers’ team.

Whether or not striker Moussa Dembélé, subject of interest from Lyon and Marseille, is deemed ready to start remains to be seen though.
