Dundee United v Dundee (Sun, 12:00)

Benjamin Siegrist could return in goal for Dundee United for the derby with city rivals Dundee at Tannadice.

The 29-year-old Swiss keeper has recovered from a knee injury sustained in the build-up to United's game with St Johnstone last month.

Liam Smith and Louis Appere are working with the physio to recover from knocks.

Dundee midfielder Charlie Adam has a chance of returning from injury for the Tannadice clash. Christie Elliott is also in contention after a knock.

Danny Mullen (ankle) remains on the sidelines.

Dundee United head coach Thomas Courts: "Dundee will be well aware that they are without a victory in the league. We probably could easily have been on double figures at this stage which is testament to the way we are playing just now.

"It is not another game, it is a derby, it is important. It is really meaningful for our fans, and ultimately once the game settles down, in those key moments we have to make sure we make them defining moments."

Dundee manager James McPake: "Some of my squad have played in Old Firm derbies, a lot have played in the Dundee derby, a lot of them have played in massive play-off games for this club only a few months ago.

"We have certainly got the players that will handle the occasion, and that is what you need to do in these games."

Livingston v Celtic (Sun, 15:00)

Livingston will be without Craig Sibbald for the visit of Celtic after the midfielder had nine stitches in a leg wound.

Sibbald faces several weeks out but Stephane Omeonga has arrived at the club and is eligible to play once his fitness is up to speed.

Jackson Longridge has been struggling with a knock and Sean Kelly (ribs) is unavailable while Jaze Kabia and Jack McMillan remain out with knee injuries.

Israel internationals Nir Bitton and Liel Abada are available after missing the Europa League defeat by Real Betis for religious reasons.

Callum McGregor and James Forrest are not far off fitness after missing the Seville trip, while recent signing Giorgos Giakoumakis also stayed behind to work on his fitness.

Greg Taylor (shoulder), Kyogo Furuhashi (knee), Christopher Jullien (knee), Mikey Johnston (hamstring) and Karamoko Dembele (ankle) are still missing.

Livingston manager David Martindale: "I don't think, with the calibre of player they have, that Celtic enjoy playing on the plastic surface. So we have to use that to our advantage.

"They have a lot of international class players. We are recruiting in a very different market, lower league football. Ange has the luxury of recruiting international players, and yes they are a transitional period, but there are exciting players in his squad."

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: "Livingston haven't won this season but that's probably given them that drive to get that first win, and we've got to make sure we're ready for that.

"It's a busy period and we're going to have to juggle league and cup games. As I said, hopefully we'll get some players back which will allow us to rest a few of the players because it's going to be important that we have a stronger core of players to call upon."

Rangers v Motherwell (Sun, 15:00)

Motherwell have captain Stephen O'Donnell available for Sunday's game against Rangers after missing four matches through illness and injury.

The right-back was not risked against Aberdeen last week after going off with a calf strain while playing in Scotland's victory over Austria.

Left-back Jake Carroll is suspended for the visitors.

Rangers winger Ryan Kent is out of the Ibrox encounter after picking up a hamstring injury in the home 2-0 Europa League defeat by Lyon on Thursday night and requires a scan.

Striker Alfredo Morelos is a doubt with a hamstring problem, defender Filip Helander is out with a knee injury, along with other long-term absentees Ryan Jack (calf) and Nnamdi Ofoborh (heart issue).

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard: "I didn't feel the same this morning [after losing to Lyon in the Europa League] as I did after the Leverkusen game, so to me that is progress but at the end of the day, we're at Rangers we need to react and bounce back for the weekend.

"You have to treat each game in isolation, today is about picking the boys up and getting recovered. The Motherwell game will be here quickly.

Tomorrow we will go tactically ahead of the Motherwell match, we need to move on pretty fast."

Motherwell manager Graham Alexander: "If you don't want to be in these games, you are in the wrong sport.

"You've got to relish it rather than be concerned about it. Knowing my players, I think they will relish the challenge.

"We have not bowed in any challenge so far since we came in. We know how tough it will be but we haven't had an easy game yet and we don't expect one, certainly not on Sunday."
