The Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern are preparing themselves for one of the biggest games of the season…
Home or away, it doesn’t get much bigger than the Old Firm derby, and this weekend’s clash between Rangers and Celtic is looking to be particularly exciting.
It’s early in the season, and both clubs have everything to fight for. Indeed, a win for Rangers could take them to within 2 points of their old rivals, and so they’ll be keen to pick up three points.
Meanwhile, Celtic will be desperate to hold on to their lead at the top of the table, and that will only be possible by taking the 3 points, particularly with Aberdeen breathing down their necks.
Fortunately, Brendan Rodgers has provided some very exciting news for the Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern ahead of the game, with the manager confirming that Moussa Dembele will feature within the squad this weekend.

He did, of course, miss Celtic’s clash with Dundee earlier this week, and though they comfortably won that game, there’s no doubting that they are a better side with Dembele involved.
Particularly against Rangers, with the hostile atmosphere that they will be expecting, Rodgers needs all the help he can get.
Despite winning in the week, the return of Dembele will be a welcomed boost.
He bagged 17 domestic league goals last season, whilst he has also managed 1 in the 1 game he’s played in the league this season.
Undoubtedly, he’s one of Europe’s hottest talents, and Rangers will be increasingly worried about the prospect of his return.
