Ibrox boss Michael Beale hints at changes ahead of Glasgow Derby

Rangers manager Michael Beale has hinted that he may make changes to his side for the Glasgow Derby against Celtic next weekend. Rangers were 2-1 winners over Dundee United but the Englishman believes that they are set up for the game.

As reported by The Sun, Beale admitted that the game next weekend will be a different proposition for his team as they face

“It’s a completely different game with hopefully a lot more space to play in.

“We’ll have a different selection and pick what we think is right for that.

“But our form in the league since I have come in – and even two games before that – has set us up for this game.

“It was important we got [Dundee United] out the way performing well and getting a clean sheet – we haven’t had one in a while.”

Beale is unbeaten in the league since replacing Giovanni Van Bronkhorst in December. However, Beale is yet to beat Celtic. The New Years game at Ibrox ended in an exciting 2-2 stalemate before the League Cup Final in February ended with the trophy returning to Paradise.

Celtic won the fixture in September emphatically by four goals to nil. Ange Postecoglou’s side were excellent as they dismantled the Ibrox side. That day, there were 750 Rangers fans in the ground, watching on helplessly as their side were demolished. Now, no away fans will be in attendance.
