Insider: Murty to make one change for Rangers v Celtic clash, 20-year-old to start
Graeme Murty will make just once change to the team that smashed Dundee 4-0 when they take on Celtic in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup on Sunday, according to an Insider.
It’s a massive game, the biggest of Murty’s career, as he tries to get the win that could save his job in the summer.
And he’s going to keep the faith with the backline that kept a clean sheet last Saturday, with Ross McCrorie and Russell Martin starting in the centre of defence.
EstConsultancy, a solid source of Rangers news, reported the team news on its Twitter account on Saturday morning.
It also said that the one change would be in the midfield area.
Expecting maybe only one change tomorrow in the midfield area. Expect McCrorie at centre half with Martin.

Keeping the same defence from the 4-0 win is the right decision for Murty to make. The only unknown now is what change he’s going to make in the middle. We’d imagine that one of Sean Goss or Andy Halliday will be the man incoming. It means that up top Alfredo Morelos will get the chance to make amends after missing a sitter to secure a draw in the last Old Firm clash. Jason Cummings will be on hand from the bench if needed. Can they do it? They certainly could but you’d have to be a brave man to bet against Celtic.
