McCrorie, Balogun, Goldson, Helander and Barisic will also make up the starting 11.

Why are there no Celtic fans at Ibrox today?

There will be no away crowd today, despite Rangers originally providing 700 away tickets,

Gers bosses revoked the tickets after Celtic admitted it could not secure seats for Rangers fans at the Parkhead Old Firm on 2 January.

As restriction levels remain volatile across the UK and the 2 January date means colder weather and potentially tighter restrictions, there was no guarantee of an away crowd and therefore, Rangers will not allow Celtic fans at the game today (29 August).

When is the next Old Firm?

The next Old Firm will be played on 2 January 2022, at Celtic’s Parkhead stadium.
