STEVEN GERRARD has named FIVE changes to his side for this afternoon’s Old Firm derby at Parkhead, albeit, it’s the same side which defeated Celtic at Ibrox back on December 29.

From the team which was held to a 1-1 draw in Govan by Kilmarnock in the club’s last match 15 days ago, out go Nikola Katic, Borna Barisic, Lassana Coulibaly, Steven Davis and Glen Kamara.

Their places in the starting XI are taken by Joe Worrall, Andy Halliday, Ross McCrorie, Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield.

That means it’s a back five of Allan McGregor in goals, captain James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Worrall and Halliday.

McCrorie will sit in midfield next to Jack and Arfield, while the front three remain unchanged with Ryan Kent and Daniel Candeias providing support to Alfredo Morelos.

There are places on the bench for Wes Foderingham, Jermain Defoe, Davis, Jon Flanagan, Kamara, Katic and Coulibaly.

It’s a noon kick-off here at Parkhead, with full coverage available on RangersTV outside the UK. Join Tom Miller and Gregory Vignal.

RANGERS: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Worrall, Halliday; McCrorie, Jack, Arfield; Candeias, Morelos, Kent.

SUBS: Foderingham, Defoe, Davis, Flanagan, Kamara, Katic, Coulibaly.

REFEREE: Mr Bobby Madden
