Rangers host Celtic in an Old Firm Derby crunch this Sunday

Ange Postecoglou’s Hoops have been brilliant this season and are eager to reclaim the league crown from their close neighbors Glasgow.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s Gers know they must win at Ibrox this weekend to keep their title hopes alive.

Both teams are in good form having won their last three league games.

But Celtic will have the psychological advantage after winning the last Old Firm in February 3-0 with Reo Hatate scoring twice and Liel Abada adding the third for Parkhead.

The Old Firm Derby clash will take place on Sunday, April 3.

It takes place at Ibrox and kick-off is scheduled for 12 p.m.

Postecoglou’s Celtic lead the Scottish Premiership heading to the Old Firm

Rangers v Celtic: what has been said?

Postecoglou believes Celtic made a ‘statement’ to Rangers in their 4-0 win over Ross County last time out.

The Hoops boss said: “I don’t think our players have lost their ruthlessness, but it’s very easy to succumb to anxiety at this time of year when the stakes are so high.

“It’s important that we continue to play our football and that we don’t fear that.

“That’s why it was important not just to win the game, but to make a statement about playing our football against a team that was in great form.

“We went determined to set the tempo and pace of the game.

“We started the game very well, I thought our football was really good.”
