Celtic’s Hayes returns from injury for Old Firm clash

Jonny Hayes returns to the Celtic squad for the Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Rangers at Parkhead on Sunday.

The left-back has recovered from a shoulder injury and is back in contention.

Boss Neil Lennon has no fresh injury worries after the 2-1 Boxing Day win over St Mirren, with Mohamed Elyounoussi (foot), Hatem Abd Elhamed (abductor) and Jozo Simunovic (knee) still out alongside Daniel Arzani (knee).

Rangers will be at almost full strength for Sunday’s Old Firm clash at Celtic Park.

Midfielder Steven Davis made his return from a foot injury against Kilmarnock as a late substitute while Jordan Jones was back on the bench after recovering from the knee injury he sustained against the Hoops back in September.

Only defender Filip Helander (foot) remains out for Steven Gerrard’s team.

Celtic provisional squad: Forster, Frimpong, Bauer, Hayes, Bolingoli, Taylor, Ajer, Jullien, Bitton, Brown, McGregor, Christie, Rogic, Ntcham, Forrest, Johnston, Edouard, Bayo, Griffiths, Morgan, Gordon.

Rangers provisional squad: McGregor, Flanagan, Tavernier, Halliday, Barisic, Edmundson, Goldson, Katic, Jack, Davis, Aribo, Kamara, King, Arfield, Barker, Jones, Kent, Ojo, Morelos, Defoe, Stewart, Murphy, Foderingham.

Celtic v Rangers tips

Let’s not beat about the bush – it’s straight to the cards market for the Old Firm derby.

888sport pre-match odds: Celtic 19/20; Draw 13/5; Rangers 14/5

NEW PADDY POWER CUSTOMERS GET A £10 RISK-FREE FIRST BET - MONEY BACK IN CASH IF IT LOSES!*

Alfredo Morelos is the option many will rush to back but he’s odds-on across the board despite having cleaned up his act a bit this season.

Yes, the Rangers striker has been carded in four of his eight starts against Celtic but that’s also reflected in his price.

A better option is to back the hosts’ midfielder Scott Brown at 13/8.

He’s been fighting tooth and nail in this fixture for more than a decade and no-one knows the intensity required more than Brown.

He loves to fly into tackles and that’s reflected in an Old Firm derby record which shows he’s started 36 times and been carded in 18 of those games.

With Celtic five points ahead having played a game more, much is resting on this contest so it should be ultra-competitive, especially after the recent League Cup final between the pair – Celtic won 1-0 but Rangers dominated play and created way more chances.

Referee Kevin Clancy is no impediment to the bet either – his previous Old Firm derbv at the end of last season saw four cards and he’s a fairly high carder, averaging more than four in all competitions this season.

In other markets, the both teams to score ‘no’ option is worth consideration at xxxx – that’s occurred in seven of the last eight Old Firm matches.

Since Rangers’ return to the top flight, Celtic are unbeaten at Parkhead, winning five and drawing two; scoring 18 and conceding only three.

Best bet

Scott Brown to be carded – 13/8 with bet365

    Gerrard’s Rangers win at Celtic Park to close the gap in thrilling title race

    Nicola Katic’s second-half header gave Rangers their first win at Celtic Park in almost a decade and massively boosted their Ladbrokes Premiership title hopes.

    In a thrilling first half, Gers keeper Allan McGregor saved a Ryan Christie penalty in the 32nd minute before Ryan Kent fired the visitors ahead four minutes later.

    The home side levelled in the 41st minute when Callum McGregor’s shot appeared to come off Odsonne Edouard’s arm and nestled in the net.

    However, Rangers were not to be denied and in the 56th minute defender Katic, who had given away the penalty by grabbing a handful of Christopher Jullien’s shirt, powered in a header from a Borna Barisic corner for a 2-1 win.

    Gers’ Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos was sent off by referee Kevin Clancy in added time for picking up a second yellow card, that one for simulation, but with their first success in the east end of Glasgow since October 2010, they moved to with within two points of the champions going into the winter break, but with a game in hand.

    A minute’s applause in tribute to former Celtic captain Duncan MacKay who died last week, preceded another contentious and incident-packed Old Firm encounter

    Rangers, with Steven Davis and Morelos back for Scott Arfield and Jermain Defoe, started well, taking the game to a nervous-looking home side, albeit the final pass was missing.

    Morelos got a couple of shots away from distance but keeper Fraser Forster gathered both with ease before he kicked away a shot on the turn from Davis after the Govan men forced a couple of corners.

    There was a huge cheer from the home fans when referee Clancy pointed to the spot and indicated that Katic had been pulling the shirt of Jullien at a corner.

    Christie blasted his shot to Allan McGregor’s left but the veteran keeper dived to parry the ball away before it was cleared, although moments later Davis cleared a Jullien header off the line.

    There was further reason for the Hoops disgruntlement when, following another measured move up the park, Kent swept a Barisic cross in off the post from 14 yards.

    Celtic fought back but Rangers were furious when Callum McGregor’s drive after picking up a loose ball seemed to hit Edouard’s arm to wrong-foot Allan McGregor in the Gers goal.

    Steven Gerrard’s men took a sense of injustice into the second half and in the 49th minute Morelos scooped a cross from Kent over the bar from six yards, failing again to break his scoring duck in the fixture.

    The Light Blues remained in control and deservedly went ahead again.

    Katic had failed to get his head on a Barisic corner from the right but when his fellow Croatian delivered from the left seconds later, he got away from Kristoffer Ajer to header past Forster.

    In the 65th minute Davis again was in the right place at the far post to head clear Jullien’s header from a Christie corner, before Allan McGregor pushed away a goal-bound drive from Parkhead left-back Boli Bolingoli.

    Ntcham and Nir Bitton replaced Johnston and James Forrest and with 10 minutes remaining, and Celtic still toiling, Arfield replaced Glen Kamara in the Gers midfield and Leigh Griffiths came on for Christie.

    Celtic kept pushing but Rangers put all hands to the pump to take the points to make a tense title race even tighter albeit they ended the game with 10 men after Morelos, booked earlier for a foul on Scott Brown, was shown a second yellow after collapsing in the Hoops box.
