Celtic are set to be without Mikael Lustig ahead of next weekend’s Old Firm derby.

Celtic defender Mikael Lustig is set to miss the Hoops‘ Old Firm showdown against Rangers next weekend after Wednesday night’s clash against Dundee was postponed – and Celtic fans are overjoyed.

The 31-year-old was sent off for two bookable offences against Aberdeen on Sunday afternoon, as the Hoops earned an excellent 2-0 win over Derek McInnes’ side at Pittodrie.

He was set to serve that suspension against Dundee on Wednesday night, as the Bhoys played host to Neil McCann’s side. However, the game has been postponed, meaning Lustig will have to wait for his ban to be removed.

The suspension will not affect his availability in Saturday’s Scottish Cup clash against Greenock Morton, meaning the 62-time Sweden international will be ruled out of the Hoops’ next game which is Old Firm rivals Rangers on March 11.

With his form questionable of late, Lustig’s unavailability against Rangers has gone down well with the Celtic faithful, as they declared themselves delighted on Twitter.

One fan even described Lustig as “a liability”.



With Celtic v Dundee postponed, defender Mikael Lustig is set to be suspended for next week’s Old Firm Derby unless the fixture is rescheduled before the game at Ibrox on March 11th. 

To be honest I would welcome this news Lustig has been poor for a while now it s time to give someone else a shot. His. Red card against Aberdeen was correct I just don’t think he has the pace anymore
