Rangers star makes Steven Gerrard demand ahead of crunch Celtic showdown | Football | Sport


The rivals go head-to-head knowing a win for Neil Lennon’s side will all but secure them the title.

Polster has yet to make his debut for the club after his January arrival from Chicago Fire.

But the 25-year-old is now fit and could make his first appearance in the Old Firm derby.

Polster can play in both defence and midfield and offers versatility to Gerrard.

“I’d love to be a part of the derby,” he said.

“Obviously it’s a big match. I haven’t even seen it live.

“I was away when we played them at the end of the year.

“It’ll be quite a day. The expectation is always the same, you want to beat them.”

Polster almost made his debut last month against Dundee only for him to suffer another injury.

“It was quite frustrating missing out against Dundee,” he said.

“The manager told me before going out to training that I was going to make my debut – but things didn’t happen as I would have liked.

“I didn’t feel comfortable and I didn’t want to put the team or him in a difficult position where I would start the match but then after 20 or 30 minutes and have to be pulled out.

“I was pretty frustrated by the whole thing.

“From both sides we were a little bit disappointed. He wanted me to be out there and to enjoy that first match. I wanted the same.

“Now it’s just about getting back into it and getting my fitness.”

Rangers take on Celtic at midday on Sunday, March 31.
