Former Celtic forward Andy Walker has predicted a victory for the Hoops and believes that attacking midfielder Tom Rogic will be key against Rangers.
The two Glasgow rivals are set to meet on Sunday at Hampden after the pair were drawn together in the Scottish League Cup semi-final stage.
The two side’s have already met in the league this campaign, which saw Celtic run out a humiliating 5-1 victory over their rivals.
Walker, now a pundit for Sky Sports has predicted a much closer scoreline at 2-1, but has opted for Rogic to be the team’s key man over Moussa Dembele, who bagged a hat-trick when the two side’s least met at Celtic Park.
“Rangers 1-2 Celtic,” predicted Walker on the Sky Sports website. “Key player: Tom Rogic
Making his mark this season in a big way, always a threat to the opposition.”
Rangers returned to Scotland’s top flight after a four years absence this season.
They are currently placed in fourth with 15 points from nine games with four wins, three draws and two losses.
Meanwhile, Celtic are seven points above their fierce rivals with a game in hand.
They haven’t lost in the league under new manager Brendan Rodgers and the Northern Irish boss has lead his team to seven wins and one draw from eight games.
In other Celtic news, Rangers captain Lee Wallace has revealed why he is envious of Rodgers’ side.
