The Portuguese veteran made his first start since the Old Firm clash at the weekend against Falkirk, after damaging his ankle and calf back in December. Although, many of our local residents wish that the defender was still out injured after witnessing his last performance.
Indeed, it was a day to forget for the 36-year-old after looking like a player who’d just returned from injury, with Falkirk’s goal being largely down to the faults of the defender. And, he didn’t look quite as composed alongside David Bates in the heart of the defence in what was a poor performance.
Therefore, supporters can expect to see Russell Martin back in the starting line-up for the Old Firm clash, as the Gers cannot afford to allow any mistakes in the defensive third against a prolific Celtic attack.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
