Good morning and welcome to derby day in Glasgow. I’m Frances Traynor (@Glesga_keelie) and I’ll be guiding you minute by minute on the action from Ibrox as champions Celtic aim to make it 4 wins on the spin at the home of the Rangers*.

Kick-off is 45 minutes away, but there's big news on the team front for Celtic

The huge news is that goalie Scott Bain makes his Celtic debut today against the plucky second-place chasers. Dorus De Vries has failed a fitness test – insert your own joke here. So Celtic head south of the river with a newbie between the sticks who hasn’t kicked a ball in anger since October. Bit of a baptism of fire (cliché alert) for Bain.

I’m sure it’ll all be fine...

And here’s that Rangers team in full:

Kidding. Here’s the Bluenose XI:


The other big news for Celtic is that Dedryck Boyata is back after a month out. He has a decent record against them, which is reassuring. As expected, Celtic will go three at the back with Kieran Tierney dropping back in to make a 4 when we're out of possession. Expect KT to be busy as most of Rangers' attacking threat comes down their right

While Celtic haven't often reached the phenomenal standards Brendan Rodgers' side set last year, when it matters domestically, this Celtic team turn up.

There’s been lots of media chatter about a title race after Rangers narrowed the gap at the top of the table to an achievably-bridged 6 points. Celtic, of course, have a game in hand over relegation dog fighters Dundee. At home. So, you know.

Apart from the fact Celtic have won the last 3 league matches at Ibrox, our record there since Martin O'Neill arrived is decent – 27 games played, 12 Celtic wins, 3 draws. Ramping up the clichés now: we need to keep our discipline, even tho this current Rangers team aren't exactly the toughest of teams. The referee is Willie Collum. So, you know.
