Celtic have the Scottish Premiership title in their sights, and could put some distance between them and Rangers.

That is, if Ange Postecoglou’s side can win again in league action against Rangers, and extend their advantage at the top of the table to nine points.

Celtic have not lost in the league actions since September, and have a comeback derby victory over their rivals in league terms, with a big game being held on Sunday on the field. their houses.

And there are more than a few choice questions for Postecoglou to debate, most notably who should lead the attack.

Giorgos Giakoumakis has returned to fitness and has been the number one attacking option in recent months, while Celtic have been notable for the Greek striker’s lack of fitness against Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

However, the star man Kyogo Furuhashi is also back, scoring last week in a win over Ross County, and could be the man Postecoglou is looking to launch.

The Hoops boss questioned midweek that both players could start, but with wingers Jota and Daizen Maeda most likely to feature, it looks like it will in fact have to this or that person.

In midfield, Nir Bitton is back and could be brought on to support the defence, but the arrivals of Hatate, Matt O’Riley and Tom Rogic, mean it’s likely. Postecoglou will start two of those three players.

Anthony Ralston will have his first derby match since last August, with first choice being right-back Josip Juranovic.
