Celtic shall be aiming to climb to the top of the SPL table in midweek, where a victory against their Old Firm rivals will see them leapfrog Rangers into pole position.
The Hoops have been chasing them throughout the entire campaign, but now they have the chance to achieve that feat in front of their own fans at Celtic Park, providing them with the perfect backdrop.
Ange Postecoglou guided his team to a 1-0 victory at the weekend against Dundee United, in what was a hard-fought game where a 90th-minute goal from Liel Abada provided the difference.
Celtic managed to achieve that despite being down to 10 men following Nir Britton’s red card, which means that the Hoops will be without the central midfielder on Wednesday night.
However, the squad do head into this game with a 13-match match undefeated streak behind them in all competitions, which gives them as much confidence as possible for what will be their biggest contest of the season so far.
On the other hand, Rangers were held to a draw at the weekend in a frantic game against Ross County, who are fighting for survival in the league, as they battled it out to finish 3-3.

Amad Diallo had given his team the lead in the opening five minutes, but the Staggies fought back to go ahead themselves until James Tavernier and Connor Goldson regained the advantage.
However, the Gers threw away a potential three points in the 96th minute, as Matthew Wright scored a crucial goal for his team, marking the second time since the winter break that Rangers have failed to win a game.
While the squad have only lost once all season in the league, the recent form has allowed Celtic to catch up to them in the table, placing some real pressure on this particular fixture.
