Rangers will clash heads with Celtic at Hampden Park this Sunday as the two sides look to earn a win in the semi-finals of the Scottish FA Cup. The Gers suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Aberdeen recently. In contrast, the Hoops secured a 1-1 draw at home against Motherwell last weekend.

Rangers Vs Celtic: Talking Tactics

Michael Beale will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and might ask his players to move the ball well and create a handful of decent chances to win this contest.

Angelos Postecoglou will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation as well and could instruct his men to defend their penalty box well and cause problems for the opposition on the counter.

James Forrest will definitely miss this cup clash due to a muscle problem. Otherwise, Celtic has no fresh injury problems to cope with this weekend.

Celtic Predicted XI

Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; Mooy, McGregor, O’Riley; Jota, Furuhashi, Maeda

Key Men


Alfredo Morelos and Fashion Sakala will have to carry a major share of the goal-scoring burden for Rangers in the final third. The defensive performance of John Souttar and Ben Davies could go a long way in determining the fate of this Scottish FA Cup contest.


Aaron Mooy and Callum McGregor will have to anchor the midfield with conviction for the Hoops if they want to secure a positive result this weekend.

All eyes will be on Kyogo Furuhashi who will be looking to threaten the Rangers goal at every chance he gets this Sunday afternoon.
