Rangers v Celtic betting preview
Rangers have lost only one of their last 19 matches in all competitionsRangers have started the campaign impressively with three wins in the first three games. They needed a 91st-minute winner to guarantee their place in the Europa League at the expense of Legia Warsaw. Rangers head into this fixture on the back of a 12-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Steven Gerrard has a 100% record against Celtic at Ibrox as Rangers manager. The Gers had previously lost four in a row on their own pitch but they triumphed 1-0 and 2-0 as all four of last season’s meetings ended in home wins.
Steven Gerrard has no injury worries ahead of the Old Firm derby, although Borna Barisic suffered a head injury against Warsaw on Thursday night and could be rested. Jon Flanagan could deputise in that position while Alfredo Morelos will spearhead the attack as he should get the nod over Jermain Defoe. Jordan Jones is pushing for a start on the flank after an impressive cameo last time out. The likes of Joe Aribo and Steven Davis are expected to anchor the midfield as usual.
Celtic have had to rebuild after losing Brendan Rodgers to Leicester last seasonCeltic also have a 100% winning record in the Scottish Premier League so far. The titleholders pulled off a 3-1 win against Hearts in their last clash at home. They have scored 15 in their first three league games and hit a further four against AIK on Thursday to reach the Europa League group stage. Neil Lennon put his side back on track after the disappointment of missing out on this season's Champions League as they shipped four goals to Romanian outfit Cluj FC. As to direct matches, Celtic have won 4 of the last 6 meetings between the two. Anyway, the Hoops have lost both meeting at this ground last year and also failed to score.
The visitors will check on the fitness of defender Jozo Simunovic, who missed the midweek trip to face AIK in the Europa League with a knee problem while Kristoffer Ajer is a major doubt for the visitors after limping off during that game. Odsonne Edouard is also expected to feature after Lennon's dismissed the issue sustained in Sweden as cramp while neg signing Moritz Bauer is in contention to make his debut with Hatem Elhamed sidelined. The other new face Mohamed Elyounoussi could feature at some stage.
