Old Firm derby vital for both Celtic and Rangers says Healy

Rangers forward David Healy suggests that the Old Firm derby against Celtic at Ibrox takes on more importance than usual this weekend.

'Gers, who lost at Dundee United last week, and the Hoops, who were beaten by Kilmarnock in the League Cup final on Sunday, will both be desperate to atone for defeats with Healy expecting a very tough encounter as per usual.

"We lost at United and Celtic lost in the Final so we'll both want to bounce back," the former Leeds United ace told the Daily Record.

"Celtic also might have the opportunity to win the league at Ibrox.

"But we know we beat them earlier in the season, which was an incredible game and performance.

"They have a good squad and good players who can hurt you.

"But come Sunday hopefully we will have done enough during the week to know how we can get a result."
