Celtic have decided that they want their postponed match against Dundee to be played on Wednesday night, according to a report,

The Daily Record are claiming that the Hoops are pushing for the match to be played before the Bhoys head to Ibrox for the third Old Firm match of the season the following Sunday.

The Bhoys currently hold a six point lead over their greatest rivals, and would have the opportunity to go nine points clear with a win over Neil McCann’s side.

If the match against Dundee goes ahead on Wednesday it would also mean that Mikael Lustig is available for the Old Firm clash, as he would be back from serving a one match suspension.

The severe weather in Scotland has also put this weekend’s Scottish Cup ties in doubt, with the Bhoys due to pla Championship side Morton at Celtic Park on Saturday.

A win for the Hoops at Ibrox would all but guarantee their seventh straight title.

The Bhoys have won their last three visits there, most recently winning 2-0 in September, thanks to goals from Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths.

The last match between the sides was a goalless draw at Parkhead in December, where both sides spurned glorious chances to win the game.

In other Celtic news, if the game goes ahead Charly Musonda should play against Morton on Saturday
