Celtic team predicted: Expected Celtic line up to face Rangers

"Experience is great but I'm sure they'll relish the chance as well, playing in front of their own fans, and we're looking forward to it", said Brown.

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha is likely to play Wes Foderingham in goal and veteran striker Kenny Miller could also start after both men were rested for Tuesday's win over Partick Thistle.

"How much did he invest in his first season here?" he asked.

Rangers failed to beat Celtic in six attempts last season but have free-scoring Alfredo Morelos in their side this season, meaning Saturday's Old Firm clash may be closer than many people think. If Alves fails to recover, it could mean a first start for teenager Ross McCrorie.

Celtic hammered Rangers 5-1 at Paradise last season in the first derby and Brown admits that the champions are going into the game with the same mentality.

Celtic centre-half Jozo Simunovic has trained after missing the midweek win over Dundee with a swollen knee.

Dedryck Boyata could also be included in the squad after boss Rodgers revealed the Belgian defender was close to making a return.

"One thing I'd say with England is that every team will believe that they can be a top flight team - Brentfords, Huddersfields - lots of clubs in England have that vision, that ambition to do that". Caixinha, though, did concede that you do tend to get what you pay for.

Surprisingly, perhaps, the 46-year-old insisted that he would derive no extra satisfaction from ending Celtic's 56-game undefeated sequence under Rodgers, should he
succeed in doing so.

"We really concentrate on ourselves".

"The gaffer is always raising the bar as far as it can go", Brown said. I wouldn't say I got carried away but leading up to it was tense.

Rangers must make a game of this, but only a big off day from Celtic will give them a hope. "If they go against us like they go against PSG, I will take one message from that".

"We're in the semi-final, we got the win, we played good football, we created umpteen chances and thoroughly deserved to win the game".
