CALLUM McGREGOR will be on the substitutes’ bench at the start of the crucial enouncter against Philippe Clement’s side in today’s High Noon showdown at Ibrox.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is taking no risks with the captain as he continues with Reo Hatate, Matt O’Riley and Tomoki Iwata in midfield.

Nicolas Kuhn makes his debut in this fixture with the German winger getting the nod over Yang Hyun-jun to take his place wide on the right.

It’s the third all-Glasgow encounter this season with the Hoops winning the previous two occasions. Kyogo Furuhashi has been the matchwinner at Ibrox on September 3 and Parkhead on December 30.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; Iwata, O’Riley, Hatate; Kuhn, Kyogo, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Idah, Yang, Nawrocki, Bernardo, McGregor, Forrest, Ralston and Welsh.

Earlier today, we asked how much you could remember about recent encounters against the Govan club in CQN’s fun five-minute quiz.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.
