Nick Walsh will be the man in the middle for the latest installment of Celtic versus Rangers.

He has been named as the referee for the highly-anticipated derby clash on Saturday, December 30.

Celtic lead the way at the summit of the Premiership by five points after defeating Dundee 3-0 this afternoon.

Philippe Clement's side are in action tomorrow evening at home to Ross County, where they will look to reduce that gap back to two to then leapfrog the champions at the weekend.

Walsh has experience of officiating the fixture. The Scottish FA has entrusted him to handle the occasion.

He will be assisted by Graeme Stewart and Calum Spence. 

Willie Collum will be on VAR and his assistant Daniel McFarlane. Kevin Clancy will be the fourth official.

Meanwhile, Cameron Carter-Vickers could potentially miss Celtic's clash against Rangers this Saturday through injury.

The American international went down with a knock during the Hoops' away encounter at Dundee this afternoon.

The 25-year-old could be seen clutching his hamstring as he received medical attention on the field. 

Brendan Rodgers took no chances as he substituted the centre-back just before the hour mark. It remains to be seen whether he was taken off by necessity or for precaution.

Stephen Welsh was sent on in place of Carter-Vickers - who did manage to walk off the pitch.

The former Tottenham defender has struggled with injuries throughout 2023, spending several months on the sidelines at varying points.
