Rangers dealt massive blow ahead of Celtic clash with injury doubt

Rangers could be without Tom Lawrence for Saturday’s derby clash with Celtic.

The Glasgow rivals meet at Celtic Park in the early kick-off on Sky Sports in an early season top of the table clash.

Rangers go into the fixture trailing the Scottish champions by two points in the Scottish Premiership. They may do so without Lawrence, according to The Scottish Sun, with the midfielder carrying a knee injury.

He was rested for the midweek Premier Sports Cup clash with Queen of the South. Despite sitting it out, he could face more time on the sidelines.

Lawrence has started well after a summer move following the end of his contract at Derby County. He has started seven of the nine games in the league and Champions League qualifying, scoring three times.
