GARY CALDWELL v KRIS BOYD

If all the speculation about his future is to be believed, Sunday's game could be Caldwell's last derby in a Celtic jersey. With his contract set to expire in the summer and no further talks over extending it planned, the Hoops may elect to cash in on last year's Scottish Football Writers' Association Player of the Year, who has struggled for consistency this term.

Of Boyd's record-breaking 160 Premier League goals, only one has come against Celtic. But he could hardly be heading into this game with more confidence after surpassing Henrik Larsson's landmark by netting five times against Dundee United on Wednesday night. Caldwell would be well advised not to give him a sniff of a chance this weekend.
