Rovers duo Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams will be hoping to make their respective international debuts when Ireland take on Celtic this Sunday.

The defensive pair are part of the squad for Scott Brown's testimonial match in Glasgow, having been called up for the first time earlier this season.

The game at Celtic Park - which kicks off at 2pm - marks the start of a busy summer period for Martin O'Neill's men.

Ireland will also take on France in Paris on Monday 28th May before hosting the USA on Saturday 2nd June.

Speaking to iFollow ahead of this weekend's match, Lenihan said: "Making my debut would top off a brilliant season.

"Especially after getting injured at the start of the year, it would be great. I didn't predict this.

"If you'd have said to me in August that I'd have won promotion and could potentially make an Ireland debut, I'd have said 'not by a long shot'.

"The decision is up to Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane, I'd love to play and give it my all. Fingers crossed."

We'd like to wish both Darragh and Derrick the best of luck and will continue to provide updates on their progress.
