Though Rangers have already been crowned Scottish Premiership champions, rivals Celtic will be hoping to rain on their parade in this Old Firm derby clash. Don't miss a moment with our Celtic vs Rangers live stream guide.

Despite the title already being confirmed, Rangers will be hoping to top off a stellar season with an away win at their city rivals.

The Gers have remained unbeaten all season thus far, winning an impressive 28 out of 32 games, which leaves them 20 points clear of Celtic at the top of the league.

As well as playing for pride in this bitter rivalry game, Celtic will be hoping to be the first side this season to defeat the Light Blues while also aiming to secure the second qualification spot for next season's UEFA Champions League.

The Bhoys are currently 12 points clear of next-best side Hibernian with today's game in hand, though they are not yet mathematically certain of qualification. A win today would all-but-secure it with a 15-point gap and huge goal difference disparity between the Hoops and Hibs.

Rangers may already be champions of Scotland but local rivals Celtic will not be welcoming them with a guard of honour as they walk onto the Celtic Park turf today in this Old Firm derby so the game is set to be frosty from the off.
