Gerrard eyes Old Firm Derby after Europa League success

Published

on

On a weekend that’s packed with fierce derbies and rivalries few come close to the Old Firm Derby, which takes place at Ibrox on Sunday. 

Rangers and Celtic lock horns for the time this season with both sides looking to maintain their 100% winning start in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers, under the guidance of Steven Gerrard, are tipped to push their Glasgow rivals all the way this season. Their summer business has been shrewd. The arrival of Steve Davis from Southampton and Andy King, a Premier League winner with Leicester, adds some much needed experience and class to a squad lacking in depth.

While Sheyi Ojo, on loan from Liverpool, will provide some much needed creativity and flair.

It’s been a perfect start to the season for Rangers both domestically and in Europe.

They’ve won their opening three league game scoring nine goals and conceding just two and safely navigated their way passed Legia Warsaw on Thursday to secure their place in the Europa League group stage for a second successive season.

But Sunday’s game will be their biggest test of the season. Like Rangers, Celtic have won their opening three games in the league, and after the disappointment of missing out on Champions League football qualifiers for the Europa League group stage with an emphatic 6-1 aggregate win over AIk Stockholm.

Celtic have been red hot in front of goal in the league averaging five goals per game already. They’re 7/1 to score three or more goals at Ibrox on Sunday.

Ryan Christie has started the season fire. He’s bagged four goals and has two assists already and is 8/1 to open the scoring.

Rangers’ biggest threat will be Jermaine Defoe. The 36 year old is like a fine wine and seems to get better and better with age. He may not be as quick as he once was but give him half a chance and he’ll take it. He’s 6/4 to score anytime.

If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed on Sunday it’s tough tackles, lots of drama and plenty of cards. Scott Brown doesn’t usually need too much encouragement to get involved one way or another and he’s 16/1 to be shown a red card.

The last time these two sides met at the Ibrox the hosts win 2-0. But in truth it was a meaningless game with Celtic already confirmed as champions. It’s 12/1 for Rangers to win by the same scoreline.

Rangers are 7/5 to bag all three points and make it back to back wins against their fiercest rivals. Celtic can be backed at 21/10, while the draw is available at 5/2.
