Michael Beale has named his team to face Celtic at Parkhead this afternoon.

Key defender Connor Goldson will miss out after not being named in the squad. 

Celtic have a major advantage as none of the Light Blues' fans will be in the ground following discussions between the clubs over safety after a series of incidents at both grounds.

Rangers go into the clash 9 points behind their bitter rivals and know a failure to win will mean curtains for their now slim title chances.

Asked if the derby was a do or die affair, Beale said: "I think that’s obvious. Since I’ve come back we’ve had 15 league games, 14 wins and a draw. 

"We’ve played our part, Celtic have as well. The players in that sense have done nearly everything they can do. After tomorrow, we will know if we’re three points closer. "Ultimately, all we can do is win our games and it’s Celtic’s league to throw away if you like. It doesn’t look like, outside the games against us, they will drop points.

Rangers XI: McGregor, Tavernier, Souttar, Davies, Barisic, Jack, Raskin, Cantwell, Tillman, Kent, Morelos.
