Rangers to Win

Steven Gerrard has fulfilled the hopes of many a Glasgow Rangers fan. However, he will have to ensure his men deliver in the Old Firm derby or the sweetness of their success will sting. The last two H2H meetings at the Ibrox have been contentious affairs, with the hosts claiming bragging rights. With form on their side, Rangers should do enough to claim the three points on offer and assert their dominance in Scottish top-flight football.

Total Goals Under 2.5

In the last ten Old Firm derbies, only twice have the scores breached the three-goal mark. Moreover, the games in contention were played at Ibrox. Neither team wants to concede to their staunch rivals and the matches are more renowned for the spirit shown by the players rather than the goalmouth action. Expect a tenacious fixture but not much in terms of goals.

Both Teams to Score: No

Steven Gerrard has turned the Rangers into champions and this squad is as close to perfection as one can want. not only do the Teddy Bears like to score with aplomb, but also like to keep it clean at the back. They have only conceded 12 times across their 35 league outings. History also points towards the likelihood of just one side scoring, as the last six H2H meetings at Ibrox have seen this come true in succession.

Rangers vs Celtic Fixture Preview

Rangers

A lot can happen in a decade and a lot did happen to Rangers in a decade. They claimed the Scottish championship, went into administration, were relegated and have made it full circle by clinching the Premiership title. Steven Gerrard and the players need to be praised for their performances as they wrestled back bragging rights in Glasgow. In the derby, the fans will be looking at Alfredo Morelos, who has hit the back of the net in five of his last six top-flight appearances.

Celtic

The departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City has not been kind for Celtic. They have struggled to impose themselves in the Scottish Premiership despite reeling to a title success last campaign. John Kennedy is the interim manager at Celtic Park and have a tough task on his hands. He can send out his charges to claim the three points on offer but the risk of losing in the Old Firm derby will keep him awake. Kennedy will be looking towards Odsonne Edouard and Mohamed Elyounoussi for inspiration at the tip of his attacking unit.
