RONNY DEILA may go with his G-force attacking option against the new Rangers in the League Cup semi-final on Sunday.

Leigh Griffiths and John Guidetti, who started in the 1-0 win over Ross County, may get the nod to face the Ibrox side.

Deila said: “We have to be able to play a 4-4-2 system if the game requires it and that is what we did on Saturday.

“I think we did that quite well. It is hard when the pitch is so small and there is so little space.

“The opposition also played so deep and were difficult to break down.

“It takes time for players to develop an understanding together in a match situation.

“That is especially true of players in attacking positions.

“To build up a relationship takes more time in the forward positions than in other areas of the pitch because of the speed at which they play.

“I think that all strikers can play together if they are required to.

“I am sure that in the future we will see John and Leigh combining to good affect for the team.

“They did well together at the weekend. They created chances, but we were not accurate enough to be able to take them.

“However, I am sure it will be different in the future.

“They are different kinds of strikers and they both have great qualities which I think will complement each other.

“But they need time to develop their relationship.

“We have good competition for places in every area of the team at the moment and up front.

“The players who are selected there have to do well to stay in the team. I am sure they will.”
