Celtic will want to extend the gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership table when they meet Old Firm rivals Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday.
The Bhoys hold a three-point gap over their rivals and could extend it to six with an extra game still to be played as they head into the winter break.
The Hoops have an excellent record when they have gone up against the Light Blues as they have not tasted defeat in their last ten meetings.
However, Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he has a huge doubt ahead of the trip to Ibrox.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, via the club’s official Twitter account, the manager stated that Kieran Tierney will need to be assessed before the game.

Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths will also be absent for the Old Firm clash on Saturday.
However, Celtic will be buoyed by the fact that they do not have any other further concerns ahead of the contest.
Tierney has been a standout for Celtic and his potential absence would be a huge blow for Rodgers and his team.
Despite a number of players being unavailable, the Hoops will feel confident that they can get a result against their arch-rivals though, as they have not tasted defeat for such a long period of time against Saturday’s opponents.
Knowing a victory will increase their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, Rodgers will want his side to use that as a method of momentum to get a positive result.
