Rangers vs Celtic: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results – Old Firm preview today

R

The rages greet Celtic today in what is one of the biggest Old Company clashes in recent years.

Celtic are currently top of the Scottish Premiership just three points clear of Rangers, and the result of this weekend’s derby could have a decisive impact on the title race.

Victory for Ange Postecoglou’s side would leave them with a hand on the trophy, while three points for Rangers would mean it was all to play for.

While Celtic focus entirely on home affairs, Rangers will always dream of European glory. They have already knocked out Borussia Dortmund en route to the Europa League quarter-finals, where they will face Braga.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game…

Rangers vs Celtic team news

Alfredo Morelos is a serious doubt for Rangers after the striker picked up a thigh injury while on international duty with Colombia.

Aaron Ramsey has been left out of Wales’ squad to face the Czech Republic but manager Rob Page has confirmed there is no reason for Rangers fans to be concerned.

Page said: “There is no injury. We also have to show respect to the clubs. We have their players.

“Let him return to his club fully fit and have a wonderful game in the Old Firm derby on Sunday.”

Kyogo Furuhashi is believed to be set to return to training for Celtic but the Japanese star has been out since December and is unlikely to be returned straight to action. James Forrest is absent.

Daizen Maeda hasn’t left during the international break and his side hope that means he’s fully rested and eager to go, while Tom Rogic is back in contention despite a knock received in Ross County ruling him out of his duties in Australia.

Rangers vs Celtic Prediction

Celtic proved far too good for their arch-rivals in February, but both sides are unbeaten in domestic competition since that game.

Rangers have since shown just how impressive they can be on their day, blasting their way to the Europa League quarter-finals, and they know defeat could effectively end their title challenge.

It looks like a close affair at Ibrox, with potentially nothing to separate the sides.

Draw, 1-1.
