Celtic have announced black armbands will be worn by players to mark the passing of Frank McGarvey, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Pele.

Players of the Parkhead side will pay tribute to those who passed away with the armband while a minute's silence will be observed before the match.

Players, staff and supporters at Ibrox will observe a moment of silence before the match to remember the victims of the Ibrox Disaster.

A Celtic club statement read: "Please note that prior to kick-off at Ibrox tomorrow (January 2) there will be a minute's silence to remember the victims of the Ibrox Disaster.

"In a week where a number of important figures have sadly passed away, we will also remember Celtic great, Frank McGarvey, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and footballing legend Pele, as the Celtic first-team will wear black armbands as a mark of respect and tribute.

"Further tributes will be paid at our next home match at Celtic Park on January 7."
