Stan Collymore delivers verdict on Celtic v Rangers showdown

By Amir Mir

Stan Collymore has backed Celtic to win the Old Firm derby against Rangers 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

The duo will clash for the fourth time this season, this time at Parkhead in a Scottish Premiership showdown.

Brendan Rodgers has already guided his team to three wins out of three against their bitter rivals, two of which have come in the SPL.

The last time both sides met at Celtic saw the away team thumped 5-1 with Moussa Dembele netting a hat-trick against a team which was then managed by Mark Warburton.

Former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker Collymore has backed the Bhoys to produce the goods again and secure yet another three points.

Former Premier League manager Rodgers joined the Hoops in the summer when he replaced Ronny Deila in the dugout.

Since his arrival, the Northern Irishman has guided the club to an unbeaten run in the Scotland domestic scene.

This has also seen them lift the Scottish League Cup, a competition they won having beaten the Gers in the semi-finals and Aberdeen in the final.

Nonetheless, despite their success in Scotland, Rodgers side did struggle during their brief spell in the Champions League this term.

They picked up three draws during the group stages but did suffer a heavy 7-0 defeat at the hands of Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

In other Rangers news, Kiernan Tierney and Kenny Miller would be axed from this combined Old Firm XI.
