Pedro Caixinha’s battle plan to face Celtic on Sunday
Focus on Dembele
It’s safe to say Moussa Dembele is not at the peak of his form right now. After a stretch of games where he scored an incredible 12 goals in 6 matches for the Hoops, he now has failed to find the net in his last four, starting with the draw that Rangers earned at Celtic Park.
There are reasons for that, limited minutes due to an injury is the main one, but he looked pretty ineffective from the start of the match against Ross County last week.
However, it would be a danger to switch Rangers’ attention away from the young Frenchman, even though he’s not firing on all cylinders.
As we’ve seen many times already in his short Celtic career, he’s a player who thrives on the big occasion and could punish the Gers massively at the national stadium if he even senses a hint of a suggestion he’s getting a bit of space in the final third.
He is still the key attacking threat to shut down and that requires a massive performance from whoever the Rangers centre-back duo is.
