By Dominic Toner

Trevor Sinclair has shown his support on Twitter for Celtic ahead of their Old Firm clash with Rangers.

The Bhoys travel to their bitter rivals on Saturday for a Scottish Premiership match and will stretch their lead at the top of the table to 19 points with a win.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will be confident having dismantled Rangers 5-1 in the previous league meeting this season and they have been in great form all season.

Celtic have won 18 of their 19 league games this campaign, with their only slip up a 2-2 draw away to Inverness in September.

Ex-Premier League winner Sinclair has shown a clear support for the reigning league champions ahead of the highly anticipated clash.

“Glasgow is and will always be green and white,” Sinclair wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Celtic will start the game as slight favourites going into the match, but are expected to be greeted to a hostile reception from the hosts.

The two clubs have one of the most recognised rivalries in British football and they will both be desperate for the bragging rights.

Rodgers’ side have not conceded in their last three games and will be hoping to be defensively strong once again.

They do welcome back youngster Callum McGregor after he served his one-game suspension, but midfielder Tom Rogic has failed to recover from an ankle injury.

In the latest Celtic news, the club’s 25-year-old is relishing a hostile atmosphere at Rangers and claims it will make him stronger.
