Celtic striker Daryl Murphy will miss the clash with an ankle injury that will keep him out for the next three or four weeks.
James Forrest's ankle injury keeps him sidelined but Charlie Mulgrew (hamstring) and Thomas Rogne (calf) are back in training and in contention.
Captain Scott Brown (ankle) and Beram Kayal (hernia) are out long term.
Rangers manager Walter Smith has been boosted by the return of Kirk Broadfoot and Lee McCulloch.
Broadfoot has been out with a bruised foot, while McCulloch has been suffering from a groin injury.
Both are back in contention for the visit to Celtic Park after sitting out the midweek draw with Valencia in the Champions League.
