Five to return for Rangers

In Scotland, the Premier Division leaders Rangers meet Hibernian at Ibrox without Andy Goram, their goalkeeper, who has a muscle injury.

Walter Smith, the Rangers manager, will choose between Billy Thomson and Colin Scott to replace Goram and welcomes back Hateley, McCoist, Ferguson, Boli and Moore. Rangers are seven points clear of Motherwell and 10 ahead of third-placed Hibs whose manager, Alex Miller, has promised a positive approach at Ibrox.

Celtic travel to Pittodrie knowing if they do not beat Aberdeen they will have gone 11 games without a win. That would be the longest sequence of failure in the club's history.
