'Brilliant', 'Yassss', 'Fantastic business' - Rangers fans react as Morelos signs long-term deal

It is one of the most intriguing Old Firm Derbies in recent memory as Rangers host Celtic with a genuine chance of causing an upset.

Looking at his stats, of course, it's hard to say exactly what he would bring as his numbers are not particularly special but we have to remember that he is playing for a team that - offensive wise - is now very short.

"This is the first time people are talking about the game, which is a real positive to me in how far we have come as a football club and a squad, and it will be a really good marker along our journey into the place we want to be and the team we want to be". We played a practice game this week and he looked very, very strong in it.

The former Swansea and Liverpool boss claims Rangers' need for a victory is more pressing than that of his side, who are on course for a second successive domestic treble.

The former Scotland worldwide has made eight appearances in all competitions since making the move to the Ibrox Stadium, keeping three clean sheets and his experience and know-how will come in handy as they look to close the gap between themselves and the reigning Scottish champions.

Home and away wins over English champions Leeds United clinched a place in the first-ever group stages of the competition and Rangers went into their final group game level on points with French club Marseille.

Celtic still have a game in hand over their closest rivals against Dundee, which will now be played on Wednesday April 4th at 7:45pm after last week's adverse weather.

"Jamie will be the same, we will give them both the maximum time possible to see how comfortable they are feeling and make our selection from there".

Celtic are going to be without Leigh Griffiths through injury, but Stuart Armstrong and Dedryck Boyata will return.

The Colombian striker and joint league top scorer is the latest player to commit his future to the Light Blues and his new deal will see him at the Gers until 2021.

"He has been training for a few weeks but has been unfortunate that he hasn't been able to get into any of the games. Yeah there was a cheer but we're just happy to be in the next round with a big game coming up".
