Sky Sports pundit predicts Celtic v Rangers, identifies key player

By Dominic Toner

Ex-Celtic striker Andy Walker expects his former club to record an emphatic win over Rangers on Sunday and has tipped Patrick Roberts to play a big role.

The Bhoys host their bitter rivals in the league and will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten record this season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are cruising to the Scottish Premiership title and are 27 points above second-placed Aberdeen, while Rangers are 33 adrift in third.

Sky Sports pundit Walker has tipped Celtic to win 3-0 in the Old Firm clash and has highlighted attacker Roberts as the “key player”.

Roberts has enjoyed his loan spell from Manchester City and has been an important player under Rodgers.

The 20-year-old has made 34 appearances this season across all competitions,s coring five goals and supplying 11 assists.

He will hope to make the starting line-up against Rangers and make a direct impact on the game.

Roberts has managed to adjust well to Scottish football and has proved to be a tricky winger for oppositions.

However, he has not always been a guaranteed starter as he battles with the likes of James Forrest and Scott Sinclair for a starting position.

Forrest is a doubt for the clash against Rangers, though, and that could leave the window open for Roberts to impress.
