Brendan Rodgers has named his Celtic starting XI to take on Rangers this afternoon.

The Hoops host their arch-Glasgow rivals for the second installment of the derby fixture this season today at Parkhead.

Yesterday, the boss ruled out Cameron Carter-Vickers until after the winter break. The American international picked up a hamstring knock in the 3-0 win over Dundee.

There was positive news on Liel Abada and Reo Hatate though, who have both been out with respective injuries in recent months. The pair are on the bench.

Here is how the teams line up for the big one this lunchtime...

CELTIC XI: Hart, A.Johnston, Welsh, Scales, Taylor, McGregor, O'Riley, Bernardo, Maeda, Palma, Kyogo

Subs: Bain Abada, Yang, Turnbull, Nawrocki, Oh, Hatate, Ralston, M.Johnston

RANGERS XI: Butland, Tavernier, Goldson, Balogun, Yilmaz, Lundstram, Sterling, Cantwell, McCausland, Sima, Dessers

Subs: McCrorie, Souttar, Lammers, Cifuentes, Matondo, Dowell, Wright, King, Devine
