STEVEN McLEAN will be the man in charge of Celtic’s visit to Ibrox on Saturday.

It will be the sixth and final Glasgow derby of the season and the Hoops are undefeated following four wins and a draw.

McLean will be assisted by Greg Aitken in the VAR studio where he will be helped by David McGeachie.

Don Robertson, who was in the middle for Ange Postecoglou’s men’s 2-1 win in the League Cup Final in February, will be fourth official. David Roome and Jonathan Bell will be the referee’s assistants for the 12.30pm kick-off.

SPOILSPORT…referee Steven McLean flashes the yellow card at striker Oh Hyeon-gyu after the Celtic striker had over-celebrated his first home league goal against Hibs in March.

It will be the champions’ second visit to Govan this season following the 2-2 draw on January 2 when Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi shared the goals.

Postecoglou saw his team romp to a 4-0 home win in September and they followed that up with a 3-2 success last month.

Celtic claimed the League Cup with a double from Kyogo and a header from Filipe Jota earned them a 1-0 victory in the Scottish Cup semi-final nine days ago to set up a grand finale with Inverness Caley Thistle at Hampden on Saturday June 3.

McLean was the man with the whistle when the Hoops overcame Hibs 3-1 in the league at Parkhead in March. He did not impress South Korean striker Oh Hyeon-gyu when he booked him for over-celebrating his first home league goal for the club.

It was 1-1 in the 81st minute when the powerhouse frontman launched a powerful header past David Marhsall following a right-wing corner-kick from David Turnbull.

Oh removed his shirt as he shared the joy with the home support – and was on the wrong end of a yellow card before the ball was re-centred for the kick-off.
