Celtic vs Rangers: Old Firm derby – LIVE!

Title glory can be all-but confirmed for the Bhoys today with victory over their most bitter rivals.

Celtic enter this lunchtime derby boasting a six-point lead over Rangers with only three games remaining after this clash, making it a huge showdown for the Scottish Premiership crown.

A run of six league victories in a row have put Ange Postecoglou’s side in the driving seat and Celtic Park will be bouncing as they look to reclaim the trophy lost to the blue side of Glasgow a year ago.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is out to guide his depleted Gers to a spectacular comeback in both domestic and continental terms.

Not only is he fighting to save the title having lost the Old Firm clash at Ibrox last month, his team come into the game off the back of a 1-0 defeat to RB Leipzig in the Europa League.
