Celtic head into the Old Firm derby on the back of a record breaking 9-0 away win over Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership. The Bhoys equalled their biggest ever league win and set a new record for the biggest away win in the competition’s history. Both Kyogo Furuhashi and Liel Abada finished the game with a match ball a piece, with Kyogo scoring a first half treble and Liel Abada matching him in the second half.
Ange Postecoglou’s side have conceded just one goal so far in their opening five games, netting 21 goals at the other end and will be full of confidence and will be looking to go five points clear of their arch rivals.
Rangers, on the other hand have also started the season well, winning four and drawing one of their opening five league games, with their only lost points coming in a 2-2 draw against Hibs when they were reduced to nine men.
Croatian Antonio-Mirko Colak has hit the ground running for Gio Van Bronckhorst’s men, finding the net in six of his last seven matches and will be hoping to add to his tally this weekend.
