Celtic and Ange Postecoglou travel to Ibrox this weekend for the final Glasgow derby of the 2022/23 season.

The Hoops will want to take away nothing but three points from the match and ahead of it, here is our predicted lineup.

It is certain Joe Hart will play between the sticks and that Anthony Ralston will start at right back with Alistair Johnston still out.

Carl Starfelt and Yuki Kobayashi played together at the heart of defence at Tynecastle last week and will do so again this weekend.

At left, Greg Taylor will start.

In midfield, Callum McGregor will obviously play along with Reo Hatate and the third spot in the engine room will go to Matt O’Riley.

The Dane has been on a hot streak lately and edges it over Aaron Mooy who hasn’t been as sharp in recent times.

Up top, Jota and Daizen Maeda will start on the wings but through the middle, Oh will get the nod.

There is a cup final on the horizon and Postecoglou will not want to risk star man Kyogo in an almost meaningless game after he came off injured against Hearts last week.

This provides Oh, then, with a massive chance. The South Korean always looks impressive off the bench and will look to seize the opportunity of starting at Ibrox.

On the bench, we will see the likes of David Turnbull, Tomoki Iwata, Sead Haksabanovic, Alexandro Bernabei and Aaron Mooy.

It will be a strong Celtic team that takes to the Ibrox turf on Saturday.

Whatever lineup is named will be more than capable of picking up three points and here is a recap of our predicted starting eleven:

Hart, Ralston, Starfelt, Kobayashi, Taylor, McGregor, Hatate, O’Riley, Jota, Maeda, Oh
