GRAEME MURTY has made two changes to his starting eleven for today’s Old Firm showdown at Parkhead.
After last weekend’s 6-0 Scottish Cup victory over Hamilton Accies at Ibrox, Rob Kiernan misses the Glasgow derby through suspension and Jon Toral also drops out with Lee Hodson and Danny Wilson back in Murty’s defence to face Celtic.
Joe Garner, who scored a hat-trick against Accies after replacing Kenny Miller at half time, also misses this afternoon’s Premiership fixture because of the six bookings he has picked up so far this term.
That means a defence of Hodson, Wilson, Clint Hill and captain Lee Wallace will play ahead of Gers’ number one Wes Foderingham.
In front of them in a 4-4-1-1 formation is a midfield of James Tavernier, Emerson Hyndman, Jason Holt and Barrie McKay with Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller linking up in attack.
On the Gers bench today are goalkeeper Jak Alnwick, Michael O’Halloran, Joe Dodoo, Josh Windass, Philippe Senderos, David Bates and Harry Forrester.
