Rangers vs Celtic Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Old Firm derby takes centre stage as Rangers and Celtic square off in a top of the table Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox. Rangers need a win to keep alive their title hopes but Celtic are unbeaten in 16 of their last 17 Premiership matches and set to avoid defeat.

Rangers Form


Rangers earned a 1-0 victory over Ross County in their previous Scottish Premiership fixture. They laboured for much of the contest before sealing the win through Ryan Kent’s deflected effort late in the second half.

Steven Gerrard’s men are 13 points behind Celtic on the table and head to the Old Firm derby off the back of a 3-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League in midweek. George Edmundson grabbed a second half consolation for the hosts who struggled to keep up with the fluid Germans.

Ranger have a good record at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership and have suffered just two defeats in their last 18 home matches. They have however failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last six Premiership matches.

Rangers News


Striker Jermain Defoe has a calf problem and is ruled out of Sunday’s match. Defender James Tavernier also aggravated an existing concern and is set to miss the derby.

Celtic Form


Celtic were in fine form in their previous Scottish Premiership fixture as they claimed a 5-0 home victory over St Mirren. Leigh Griffiths bagged a hat-trick while Odsonne Edouard and Callum McGregor were also on target.

The Hoops have a comfortable lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership and have suffered just one defeat in their last 17 matches. They have however been suspect at the back recently having conceded in three of their last four matches. 

Celtic News


Winger Mikey Johnston remains a long-term absentee and is the only injury concern for Celtic ahead of the trip to Ibrox.

Rangers vs Celtic Head to Head


Celtic have a 46-34 advantage with 19 draws from 99 previous matches against Rangers. The hosts claimed a 2-1 victory at Parkhead the last time they faced Celtic with Ryan Kent and Nikola Katic getting the goals while Odsonne Edouard was on target for the Hoops.

Rangers vs Celtic Match Up


Alfredo Morelos will be the one to watch for Rangers with the striker looking to add to his 12 Premiership goals this season. Ryan Kent and Scott Arfield have also impressed lately and should cause the Celtic defence plenty of problems.

Celtic also have plenty of attacking quality, particularly with Odsonne Edouard who has nine goals in his last 10 Premiership matches. The visitors also have the in-form Leigh Griffiths who scored a hat-trick in his last outing.
