CRAIG Gordon reckons Celtic are good enough to go to Ibrox and beat Rangers for the fifth time this season - even if it is without their main striker Moussa Dembele and captain Scott Brown.

Leigh Griffiths is likely to deputise for the 20-year-old Dembele who sustained a hamstring injury at Hampden on Sunday while Brown's appeal against his dismissal at Dingwall last weekend will finally be heard this Thursday.

Should Don Robertson's decision to dismiss him be overturned, Brown would be available for the sixth and final Old Firm match of the season too but Gordon feels Brendan Rodgers' side have enough belief in their own ability to go and win in any case.

"We’ll deal with the situation and try to win it, whoever plays and whatever the formation is," said Gordon. "We can change it up when we need to and we’ll prepare for this one as thoroughly as we do for every other match. Rangers got their draw at Celtic Park and fully deserved it. But we want to keep winning, no matter who we’re up against. We want to keep going and finish the season with as many victories as possible."

The belief in this squad was obvious in the 2-0 win at the national stadium on Sunday, with Gordon as delighted about recording his first clean sheet in three matches as anything else. “We had lots of clean sheets earlier in the season but we’ve been experimenting a bit with different players and positions at the back over the last few weeks," he said. "But, although I had a few decent saves towards the end when they had to try and chase the game, it was good to get back to looking solid again.

“We’re confident in our own ability; it doesn’t matter who we’re playing against," he added. "Everyone was excellent at Hampden. This was another big game where we’ve turned up and handled the pressure and the occasion and played as we normally do.

“We’re a passing team and we set up to keep the ball and create opportunities by moving the ball about. We know that if we keep the ball then there aren’t going to be many opportunities for the opposition. Our centre-halves were really dominant and we were in total control for large parts of the game."
