The Rangers defender David Weir has tipped the goal-shy Celtic duo of Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Georgios Samaras to find the net again soon but hopes their return to form comes after Sunday's Co-operative Insurance Cup final.

Towards the end of the first half, when Celtic were 2-0 up and should have been further ahead, an interruption in play allowed Gordon Strachan to have a word with Scott McDonald. "Like this," the manager appeared to be saying, thrusting his head through an imaginary ball.

His forwards are firing blanks.
