GOOD AFTERNOON FROM IBROX
Welcome to our live coverage of the Scottish Cup fourth round clash between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox Stadium.
The Gers have sealed their first Scottish Premiership title in 10 years and the Hoops will be hoping to cut their momentum short by winning the Cup.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard will be without Ryan Jack, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season after being told he needs surgery on his calf.
Jack's injury also works as a major blow for Scotland as that means the midfielder will also miss the summer's delayed Euro 2020 competition.
Gerrard has also stated that he won't be rushing captain James Tavernier back to his team after the right-back's two-month spell in the sidelines with a knee injury.
Leon Balogun also poses as a doubt after picking up an ankle knock during training, which means that if he and Tavernier don't play then 19-year-old Nathan Patterson is likely to start at right-back.
Interim Celtic coach John Kennedy, on the other hand, confirmed that James Forrest is still fighting for match fitness following a lengthy spell out due to a recent ankle surgery.
Forrest returned to action last month but picked up a back and hamstring niggle on Saturday's win over Livingston
