Celtic have the opportunity to claim the Premiership title in the Old Firm Derby at Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Celts were expected to wrap up their league title last weekend, but Hibernian had other ideas as they inflicted a 2-1 defeat on the league leaders.
However, the third defeat of the season has given the Hoops a golden opportunity to win their league title against arch-nemesis Rangers.
The Hoops are undefeated at home this season, but they have drawn too many games in recent weeks. However, they did claim an emphatic 4-0 win over their opponents in the Scottish Cup semi-final a couple of weeks ago.
Rangers come into this game on the back of a 2-1 home win over Hearts last weekend. The game is also vital for the visitors as they are involved in the competition for European places. Following the results this week, they find themselves in the third spot and level on points with fourth-placed Hibernian. They would also love to delay Celtic’s title parties by one more week, but a defeat would put a top-three finish in serious doubt.
The Gers have been strong on the road this season, and they already claimed a goalless draw at Celtic Park back in December. However, other three meetings between these two sides this season have ended in favour of Celtic.
