Premiership predictor: Thommo v Rory Lawson

After completing successful Europa League group-stage campaigns on Thursday, Celtic and Rangers are back in Scottish Premiership action on Sunday.

Second-place Rangers, in their first domestic outing since League Cup final defeat to their Old Firm rivals, are at Fir Park to face a Motherwell side who can return to third spot with a point.

Leaders Celtic then entertain sixth-placed Hibernian, who are on the rise with 10 points from 15 under new manager Jack Ross.

Motherwell v Rangers (Sun, 12:00)

Centre-half Peter Hartley and forwards Devante Cole and Christy Manzinga have all fully recovered for Motherwell after a bug that hit Fir Park last week. Midfielder Christian Ilic will again be missing along with long-term absentees Charles Dunne and David Turnbull.

Rangers will be without Filip Helander - the centre-half is waiting for scan results on a foot injury, while midfielder Steven Davis is also a doubt for the Fir Park clash. Centre-half George Edmundson should recover from a bout of illness, while winger Jordan Jones is closing in on a return from a knee injury.

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson: "There were people who were not 100% and we managed to get a very good week of results. So hopefully everybody is right at it again and our energy levels will be even higher."

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard: "It's been tough to pick ourselves up, the players and the staff, for this game [the draw against Young Boys to put Rangers in the last 32 of the Europa League]. On the back of a cup final where we put everything into that game and had two days to recover, no one should understate what they've done."

Did you know? Motherwell have not won a Premiership game against Rangers since Boxing Day 2002 - meaning the Ibrox side are unbeaten in their last 44 league matchups against Motherwell.

Celtic v Hibernian (Sun, 15:00)

Available for Celtic again are goalkeeper Fraser Forster, right-back Jeremie Frimpong, striker Odsonne Edouard, captain Scott Brown and fellow midfielders Callum McGregor, Tom Rogic and Ryan Christie after being rested for Thursday's Europa League defeat by Cluj. Hatem Abd Elhamed, Jozo Simunovic and Daniel Arzani remain out.

Hibs midfielder Joe Newell will miss the trip west with a calf injury, while defenders Darren McGregor and David Gray are both pushing for involvement after their returns to training, with the former closer to a first-team berth.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon: "I took that calculated risk [resting players], if you want to call that, on Thursday because I have to think about the squad as a whole. I can't keep running the players into the ground in pressure games. Hopefully that will work in our favour and, come Sunday, we will be ready to go."

Hibs head coach Jack Ross: "It's a difficult game to get at any time. They have just come off winning a cup final that could have gone either way as well. They are in terrific form, but we believe we are a good team as well and in a good place."

Did you know? Ryan Christie has been directly involved in six of Celtic's last nine league goals (three goals, three assists), with these six goal involvements coming across the last three Premiership games.
