Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has included two Rangers players in his Team of the Week.
Rangers beat Dundee 2-0 on Saturday, with former Celtic favourite Kenny Miller scoring the winner for the Ibrox side.
Both Jordan Rossiter and Lee Wallace played 90 minutes in the win, and Sutton picked them out for their performances in his best X1 of the weekend.
Harry Forester scored the opener for the Glasgow giants in the win, but Sutton said he didn’t include the Englishman because he should have been sent off.
Celtic didn’t play at the weekend after they had committed to a friendly with Inter Milan, in which they lost 2-0.
They return to competitive action on Wednesday in the Champions League, when they welcome Hapoel Beer Sheva to Parkhead for the final round of qualifying.
Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed he told Brendan Rodgers that the Champions League play-offs are their biggest games of the season.
Celtic will reach the lucrative group stages of Europe’s elite competition if they overcome the Israeli side in the two-legged clash.
“I think Brendan knows what’s at stake. It sets the whole season up brilliantly,” Lennon said to BBC Scotland.
“I have spoken to him about it personally. I said, ‘look, these are your biggest games of the season’.
“The build-up is awful – it’s just like a Celtic-Rangers game. But once the game’s underway, it’s great.
“They are awful to negotiate. You don’t know who you’re going to get, you don’t know if the players are ready yet.”I think the Celtic players are up to speed now, judging by the performances of late.
“Knowing you’re going back in [to the group stage] and what it means to the club and all those big games to look forward to, it’s special.”
The Glasgow giants completed the signing of Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dorus de Vries this week.
De Vries has become Rodgers’ fifth summer signing, after Scott Sinclair, Moussa Dembele, Kristoffer Ajer and Kolo Toure all moved to Celtic Park.
Having won the Scottish Premiership last season, Celtic are now bidding for their six straight title but face stiff competition with Rangers returning to the top flight.
