The title may have already been secured by Celtic, however this is still the Old Firm Derby and you can bet that Rangers and Celtic will a deliver a passionate affair, especially Rangers who will want a repeat of the last result at Ibrox which saw Steven Gerrard’s team finish on top by 1-0. Form Labs break down the action with their betting preview and tips for the game while we bring you plenty of Old Firm value with our selection of enhanced odds.
Bragging Rights At Stake
Rangers will have to welcome Celtic as confirmed champions after the Hoops took a wasteful Aberdeen apart last week, but they’ll at least want to claim some bragging rights in this dead rubber game.
They look well placed to put up a fight following five wins on the trot, with the latest success over Hibs ending Paul Heckingbottom’s 10-game unbeaten run since arriving in the dugout.
Admittedly, their previous match prior to that run was a defeat at Celtic Park, though Rangers did manage to record a victory over their Old Firm rivals in their one and only meeting at Ibrox this season.
Ill-discipline A Problem For Rangers
Ill-discipline has really cost the Gers this term and it’s not all just down to the volatile Alfredo Morelos, though the Columbian has racked up five of their 12 red cards this term across all competitions.
Allan McGregor was the latest player to be handed his marching orders late on last time out, and his absence will be felt keenly as a key first team regular.
However, Celtic have their own missing players and although full-backs Kieran Tierney and Mikael Lustig look set to return for this clash after limping off against Aberdeen, both Ryan Christie and Dedryck Boyata remain sidelined.
Rangers v Celtic Betting Tips
The three head-to-head meetings this term have seen a grand total of just five goals, three for Celtic and two for Rangers, and with Neil Lennon’s outfit keeping a clean sheet in nine of their past 10 outings across all competitions, we could certainly see this being another low-scoring affair.
Moreover, Steven Gerrard’s charges have managed seven clean sheets in their last nine at Ibrox in all tournaments, where they’ve only been beaten twice from 28 matches this season, as at least one team failed to score on 19 occasions.
Of the eight head-to-head meetings since the start of last season, only two saw both sides find the net.
