FILLING THE VOID: REPLACING DEMBELE

With the news that Moussa Dembele is set to miss the rest of the season, we thought we'd have a look at the players most likely to replace him up front between this Saturday's trip to Ibrox and the Scottish Cup final.

Leigh Griffiths: The man who will be expected to replace Dembele has had a stop-start sort of season, as injuries and the form of Dembele have kept him out of the side at times. He has still scored 14 goals in 29 games though, and Dembele's injury gives him the opportunity to prove that he should once again be the main striker at Celtic,

Scott Sinclair: Even though he has primarily played on the wing this season, Sinclair has at times played as the furthest man forward, and sometimes to great effect, such as his hat-trick in the league clinching victory over Hearts. I would perhaps be inclined to play him in this role against Rangers, as they have found him difficult to deal with this season.

Jack Aitchison: Only 17 years old but has already featured for the first team this season. Was the star man in the recent Glasgow Cup victory over Rangers and is bound to get some game time towards the end of the season.
