Gordon Smith names these four Ibrox stars in his combined Rangers-Celtic XI

Rangers take on Celtic next month - and Gordon Smith has named four Gers stars in a combined XI.

Ibrox hero Gordon Smith has told PLZ Soccer that in a combined Rangers-Celtic team, he would include four of Mark Warburton's key players.

Rangers' 4-0 home win over Dundee earlier this month set up a Scottish Cup semi-final with Old Firm rivals Celtic, who beat Morton 3-0 in the last round.

This will be only the second Old Firm derby since the end of the 2011/12 season, as Celtic won last season's Scottish League Cup game between the two sides 2-0 - but this is a much different scenario to last season.

Celtic were coasting in the Scottish Premiership whilst Rangers were in disarray following the departure of manager Ally McCoist, where as this season, Celtic have been shaky under Ronny Deila, whilst Rangers are storming to promotion from the Championship.

Mark Warburton has his side 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship, having lost just two games this season, and his players have been simply superb all season.

Now, former Rangers player and director Gordon Smith has told PLZ Soccer that, in a combined Rangers-Celtic team, four Gers stars would be in his side.

Smith suggested that right back James Tavernier, left back Lee Wallace, winger Barrie McKay and forward Martyn Waghorn would all make into a combined team, with Craig Gordon, Jozo Simunovic, Erik Sviatchenko, Nir Bitton, Scott Brown, Kris Commons and Leigh Griffiths representing Celtic.
