ODSONNE EDOUARD will lead the Celtic attack against Rangers at Parkhead in the High Noon shoot-out.

The French striker netted twice when the team last met in April in the east end of Glasgow as Brendan Rodgers’ men sealed their seventh successive Premiership crown with a devastating five-goal display.

In fact, it is the EXACT same line-up that cruised to a 5-0 victory five months ago.

James Forrest and Tom Rogic also come back into the starting line-up with Mikey Johnston, Leigh Griffiths and Scott Sinclair dropping out. New Bhoy Filip Benkovic is named among the substitutes following his deadline-day loan move from Leicester City.

CELTIC: Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Ajer, Tierney; Brown, Ntcham; Forrest, Rogic, McGregor; Edouard. Subs: Bain, Griffiths, Sinclair, Gamboa, Christie, Benkovic, Kouassi.

Steven Gerrard has decided to play new signing Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos in attack in an enterprising selection for his first-ever game against his former Liverpool boss Rodgers.

RANGERS: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Barisic; Jack, Ejaria, Arfield, Kent; Lafferty, Morelos. Subs: Foderingham, Worrall, Flanagan, Halliday, McCrorie, Candeias, Middleton
