Celtic and Rangers meet for the last time in the league this season at the weekend. Here’s everything you need to know about the game.
Where and when is it running?
Sunday’s game will be played at Parkhead with a 12pm kick-off.
What’s new from the team?
We’ll bring you team news from both camps later in the week.
Where can I see the game?
The game will be streamed live from 11am on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football. The game will also be streamed via the Sky Go app.
What is the head-to-head balance?
Rangers’ recent 2-1 win in the Scottish Cup semi-finals at Hamden Park means they have two wins apiece so far this season, with Rangers claiming a 1-0 home win in August before Celtic one in February repelled a very impressive 3-0 win and a 2-1 win of their own in April.
The Bhoys are currently six points clear of their neighbors with four games to go. A win on Sunday would essentially take the title due to Celtic’s vastly superior goal difference. However, a Rangers win would leave the door slightly open should Celtic slip up again.
Overall, the sides have met 429 times, with Rangers winning 168, Celtic 161 and a Round 100 draw.
What are the match odds?
Celtic are favorites at 10/11, Rangers at 14/5 and the draw at 5/2.
What do both camps say?
“Look at our record from round six. If people can show me which games we could have afforded to slip up in, I’d be happy to look at them.
“We just have to carry on with the football that we played, with all the challenges that we have and I felt like we did that.
“We have been walking this tightrope for a very, very long time. I think people didn’t notice because the players handled it very well.
“Look at our record and the challenges we’ve had during that period, the players have been laser focused.
“I’m not surprised, but very proud. It’s one of those ones where I sometimes sit back and just think about what this group of men has accomplished in such a short amount of time.
“The nice thing is that they are back now and recovering and preparing to get going again next week. They won’t even talk about anything other than that we got the job done.”
Giovanni van Bronckhorst after their weekend win over Motherwell:
“I’m very proud. We started the game well, made it 1-0 and then controlled the game well.
“The red card changed the momentum for us, we had to adjust our game plan but I think it worked out well, especially when we have a lot of pace up front.
“Defensively, we didn’t give anything away, especially in the second half.
“That’s why I’m really proud of our players because we had to dig deep into our pockets but in the end we were really happy with the win.”
