A quick '99k9:ths9.!iFirm dash

What is it? This is the second of four meetings between Celtic and Rangers this

seasOn The match wrll be seen by the highest ever attendance at an all-seater stadium in Britain. wrth a total of 60,081 taking their posmons for an afternoon of

paSSion and corrimitment to the cause.

The form book Despite claiming the League title in May for the first time in a decade, Celtic have lost all impetus, as well as the coaches who led them to that wrn and it is Rangers who go in to the match wrth renewed vigour. They are striding ahead in the League, going great guns in Europe, and havrng the opportunity (With the Coca—Cola League Cup) of having silverware in the cabinet by the end of November. The last meeting ended in a highly entertaining goalless draw and wrt'n Rangers ten points ahead in the Championship race before this

match, defeat for Celtic lS inconceivable.

The coaches One signifier of the massive changes which have met the game is that the Old Firm no longer have managers, they have head coaches. tn the green corner is the under-pressiire Dr Josef Venglos who is finding it hard to field a side which can Vv’lfi two games in a row, while Dutch maestro Dick Advocaat has his men playing some relaxed and confident football

The key players For the home team, the continued absence of Marc. Reiper and Alan Stubbs from the centre of the defence, means much Will depend on the form of Tom Boyd and Jackie MacNamar'a (above), while Henrik Larsson Will be expected to carry the goal threat up front virtually on his own. Rangers are now .tarting to click in front of goal despite not havrng properly replaced Ally McCoist or lv‘iarco lslegri With their lack of height at the back, Celtic Will be further threatened by the looming presence of Lorenzo Amoruso, Colin Hendry (above) nd Sergu; Porrini. Just about everything points to a comfortable Rangers wrn. So

put your money on Celtic.
