The Old Firm derby takes place on Saturday and might already be Celtic’s final chance to make a real fight of retaining their Scottish Premiership title.

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side have not lost in the league or in Europe this season, with just five goals conceded in 21 matches – and they have a 16-point lead at the top heading into this fixture. Even factoring in Celtic’s three games in hand, a gap of 19 would surely be insurmountable if the Gers claim the spoils today – but if it’s Neil Lennon’s side who triumph, the gap could be down to just four if they also win their games in hand.

Celtic have won nine titles in a row and are three behind Rangers’ all-time record of 54 championships, but no club has ever won 10 straight titles – and Gerrard’s team are doing their best to ensure that remains the case after 2020/21 comes to a close. Follow all the latest updates below.

2’ – Rangers 0-0 Celtic

Two minutes in, we’ve had the first free-kicks given. Celtic looking to break out quickly down the left at every opportunity – and Edouard gets in down that channel now to rattle in a shot, saved low down by McGregor. The striker is then offside when the next rebound breaks his way.

CAN CELTIC CLOSE THE GAP?

“I wouldn’t make predictions about the game at Ibrox. But are they capable of going there and winning? Yeah, they’ve proved in the past they can do it.”

Neil Lennon feels his players have what it takes to cause a bit of an upset today. Let’s find out if he’s right.

TEN TO KO

We’re closing in on the start of the match at Ibrox. What’s the plan for Gerrard’s side? Difficult to see them changing tack from a defensive viewpoint, given their success with the approach so far this season. But a win would be such a massive, huge step toward a first title in a decade.

POIGNANT DAY

Rangers will mark the 50th anniversary of the Ibrox disaster today – but of course fans will not be in attendance and Steven Gerrard has asked them to not gather at the ground to pay their respects.

TOP SCORERS

James Tavernier is vital to the Rangers cause in both halves of the field. He’s part of that defence which has conceded five times in 21 games, and he’s the top scorer…of the entire league.

Yes, the right-back has netted 11 times this season and is the Premiership’s top scorer, incredibly.

Celtic’s top scorer is Odsonne Edouard, with seven so far.
