Filip Helander has been ruled out of the third Glasgow Derby of the season with a foot injury.
The centre-back has been out of action since the sides last met in the League Cup final earlier in December, and it was confirmed on Thursday that he will be out for the next four-to-six weeks.
And following the news, these fans have shared their reactions on social media.
Twitter: @STVRaman Edouard will be gutted, he couldn’t wait to terrorise him on 29th (@Jamesmac1888)
Twitter: @STVRaman Was hoping to see him turned inside out by big Eddie on the 29th (@Adambeaton67)
Twitter: @STVRaman @moo_ted That the lad who played Jullien onside in the LCF and caused a meltdown all over the Scottish Media? (@carlo7598)
Twitter: @STVRaman Statutory sick pay for that length of time will help keep the balance books in the black 😂😉😉 (@FollowerCeltic)
READ CELTIC VERDICT
While Helander’s absence will be a blow for Rangers, it is unlikely to have an impact on the way in which Celtic approach the game.
The Hoops will be focusing solely on ensuring they perform to a much higher standard than they did in the League Cup final triumph.
