Glasgow Rangers striker Fashion Sakala is up for selection for Sunday’s Old Firm Derby showdown against Celtic after a week out due to illness as domestic action across the globe resumes this weekend after March’s FIFA international match break.
Fashion missed Chipolopolo Zambia’s friendly dates during the FIFA break against Congo-Brazzaville and Benin played in Turkey after reportedly testing positive for Covid-19.
According to Ibrox News, the Chipolopolo striker could start in Rangers’ home date against Celtic after Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos returned to Scotland with an injury from international duty.
Fashion, who joined Rangers this season from Belgian club KV Oostende, has never started or scored in an Old Firm Derby fixture after coming on as a substitute in their last two league meetings.
The Chipolopolo striker has 7 league goals from 24 matches so far played for the Scottish champions.
Meanwhile, Celtic head into Sunday’s clash at Ibrox leading the log on 76 points, three points more than second placed Rangers.
