Celtic star “gutted” to miss Ibrox clash but backs Bhoys to get through

Celtic’s Mikael Lustig will be serving his one match ban next weekend at Ibrox after the defender received a red card in the 2-0 win at Pittodrie on Sunday.

The Sweden international was scheduled to serve the ban in the midweek in the game against Dundee at Celtic Park. This was reportedly called off due to the bad weather and Brendan Rodgers was yesterday attempting to re-schedule this match for Wednesday evening.

However, Celtic’s game against Morton today still remains a doubt, a decision has been reach to play the Dundee match on 4 April.

The club are unlikely to miss the service of Lustig for the trip to Ibrox and are likely to play with three at the back with Tierney and Forrest as attacking wing backs. With Dedryk Boyata coming back into contention for the club after his injury at Rugby Park, our defence will look solid enough against Morton.

The new date for the fixture as announced by the club official website on Friday morning says:

“Celtic’s SPFL fixture against Dundee which was postponed on Wednesday due to the adverse weather conditions has been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 4.

“The rearranged match will kick-off at 7:45pm and falls between Celtic’s last two scheduled games before the league split – at home to Ross County on Saturday, March 31 and away to Hamilton Accies on Sunday, April 8.”
