Stumbling Celtic right back Jeremy Toljan has turned up the temperature as we head into Sunday’s crunch Old Firm.
The on-loan Borussia Dortmund full-back told Four Four Two that Celtic “want to win convincingly”. He also spoke about the lead Celtic have at the top, saying our rivals go into the game “very comfortable”.
Rangers will be more than up for the battle and Toljan perhaps shouldn’t underestimate the challenge in what will be his first Old Firm derby.

“The gap at the top certainly helps,” said Toljan.

“You can go into the game very comfortable, but even though we don’t need to win, we want to win and we want to win convincingly, that’s for sure.
“Our league lead allows us to go into the game with a little more comfort, and allows us to play our game, especially at home.”
The right-back has struggled with form since coming to Scotland and will most likely be up against Ryan Kent come Sunday. He’ll need to be at the top of his game to keep the Liverpool loanee out. Kent tends to raise his game for matches like this and will be right up for it.

Toljan is likely to start in the place of Mikael Lustig, who was given a torrid time by the winger in December.
And should Kent do the same to Jeremy Toljan, could Celtic’s attention turn to the player? One Scottish manager believes a move from the Eastend for the player isn’t out of the question.
