All the stats you need for Rangers vs Celtic

Rangers slight favourites to progress in the Scottish Cup

Rangers ran out 2-1 winners in their last game at home to Hibs in what could prove to be a perfect warm-up game for their Scottish Cup tie against Celtic. While Rangers have run away with the league title in Scotland this season, Celtic remain their biggest threat and have shown improvements since manager Niel Lennon left the club.

Steven Gerrard will be all too aware of the threat Celtic pose to his chances of adding another trophy to his collection and will be demanding full concentration and commitment from his players this Sunday. Jack, Tavernier and Katic will miss this Scottish Cup tie through injury.

Celtic's 6-0 win over Livingston last time out will have given the club a massive morale boost ahead of another tricky Old firm derby against Rangers. Celtic have looked excellent going forward in recent weeks and far more solid at the back since their change in management and could still end this season on a high if they can knock Rangers out of the Scottish Cup and go on to lift the trophy. The underdogs will be without Jullien whose knee injury will keep him out of action for the rest of the season.
