Scottish Premier League

Old Firm rivals Rangers and Celtic lock horns in a televised Scottish Premiership match this Saturday lunchtime. Read the match predictions to find out why an away is the betting tip at Ibrox. The Gers were held to a 1-1 draw away to St Johnstone in their last match while Hoops registered a comfortable 2-0 home win against Ross County.

Rangers vs Celtic Preview

Rangers could welcome back Jordan Rossiter to the squad but Nico Kranjcar remains sidelined through injury. Much of the Teddy Boys’ attacking has gone through Martyn Waghorn recently and he’s expected to return to the starting XI after appearing as a sub in the draw to St Johnstone.

Celtic are hoping that left-back Kieran Tierney and attacking midfielder Tom Rogic are fit to feature here after recovering from injury. Leigh Griffiths could drop to the bench to accommodate Moussa Dembele who has 18 goals from 35 appearances in all competitions this season. Elsewhere, Brendan Rodgers has a fully fit squad to select from.

Team Predictions Rangers vs Celtic

Rangers 4-3-3 formation: Foderingham; Wilson, Hill, Kiernan, Tavernier; Halliday, Holt, Windass; McKay, Garner, Waghorn

Celtic 4-3-3 formation: Gordon; Izaguirre, Simunovic, Sviatchenko, Lustig; Armstrong, Brown, Rogic; Sinclair, Dembele, Forrest

Rangers vs Celtic Prediction

It was already looking like ‘Mission Impossible’ for Rangers to catch runaway leaders Celtic but dropping points at St Johnstone has made things even more difficult. They trail their Old Firm rivals by 16 points and have played an extra game, so even a victory here is unlikely to prevent the Hoops from lifting the title.

Celtic have been in superb form and look a tough side to break down at the moment. They’ve kept four clean sheets on their current six-game winning streak, including three successive shutouts. The visitors are very much in the winning groove, so will be confident of getting a result at Ibrox.

The last Scottish Premiership meeting was a one-sided affair, with Celtic winning 5-1. However, the rivals have since met in the League Cup where Rangers played much better despite losing 0-1. I can see Celtic having the upper-hand once more but expect Rangers to make it a battle. BetVictor’s stand-out best odds on a 2-1 Celtic win look worthy of investment.
