■ The big match CELTIC v RANGERS, Sun Feb 20 and Wed March 2, Sky Sports


LOVE them or loathe them, it’s hard to deny the Old Firm make for compelling box offi ce viewing. And this season fans are being treated to a heavier dose than usual, with three meetings in the cups added to the usual four fi xtures in the SPL. The Glasgow clubs lock horns at Celtic Park twice in ten days this fortnight, with the league match on Sunday followed by the Scottish Cup 5th round replay a week and a half later. So far honours are more or less even: Rangers triumphed at Parkhead early in the season but endured defeat on their home turf, before last month’s cup tie at Ibrox ended in stalemate. With the next two games taking place in the east end, it could be advantage Celtic, but nothing is ever straightforward when these two get together.


Gers back in Euro action  


RANGERS will be reunited with an old friend when they return to European duty at Ibrox tonight. Former Gers ace Pedro Mendes will be a familiar face in the opposition ranks when Sporting Lisbon arrive in Glasgow for the fi rst-leg of their last-32 Europa League tie against the Scottish champions. But all thoughts of friendship will be put on hold for 90 minutes as Rangers look to prolong their European involvement into spring against the team which dumped Everton out the competition at the same stage last season. It is likely to be a tall order for Walter Smith’s men.


With a depleted squad and a fi xture backlog to contend with (tonight’s match will be swiftly followed by two trips to Celtic Park on league and cup business), the Light Blues will have to dig deep to overcome the Hoops of the Iberian Peninsula. Elsewhere in Europe, Liverpool, revitalised under Kenny Dalglish, recommence their Europa League campaign this evening with a trip to Sparta Prague. The match could come too soon for record signing Andy Carroll, who has been sidelined with a groin injury, but the line-up is likely to feature fellow new signing


Arsenal and Birmingham will fi ght it out for the Carling Cup on February 27.


Luis Suarez in attack. Meanwhile, Birmingham bid for their fi rst major silverware since 1963 when they take on Arsenal in the Carling Cup fi nal.
