Sunderland must be anxious about losing players in the summer window with a drop down to League One looking more likely than not right now. Brendan Rodgers' defending champions will travel to Rangers looking to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Times have changed over the last few years, as Rangers look to recover from being banished to the fourth tier, and Celtic have had an easy run at the domestic league in their absence. "We have to be ready for whatever they bring".
"The three points are on offer for us and if we get them then we put ourselves in a fantastic place to go and finish the season off really strongly", he added.
On being told that the Rangers players had cheered in the dressing-room after their Scottish Cup quarter-final victory over Falkirk when they heard that they had drawn Celtic in the semi-finals, Rodgers said: "Be careful what you wish for".

What time does the Rangers - Celtic game start at?
"This is the biggest test we now have and we have got a group of players who are really positive, really hungry and desperate to do well, which is a great thing for a manager". "We'll work some elements of where we can hurt them and prepare really well for that and go there with confidence", The Herald quotes the former Liverpool coach as saying.
"But the first part of that journey is overcoming Celtic and that's why Sunday's game is such a big game for them". Maybe it was perceived that we wanted to take them on, but I don't think the boys were being over confident.
And the 21-year-old loves the Old Firm derby - scoring five times in seven games - and he's 10/3 to score first. We are a different kind of team and I would say our people in form are capable of causing anyone a problem.
