Ange Postecoglou’s side currently lead their Glasgow rivals by six points at the top of the table with a superior goal difference heading into the five remaining league games.

The Hoops secured a 2-1 victory over Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men at Ibrox earlier this month and both sides will go head to head once again this Sunday in the Scottish Cup semi-finals at Hampden Park.

The final derby encounter of the season will prove to be an another massive occasion as Rangers aim to keep alive their slim hopes of retaining the title alive.

Providing both teams successfully navigate difficult games against Motherwell and Ross County later this month, a victory for the regining champions at Parkhead would move them to within just three points and set up a grandstand finish to the 2021/22 campaign.

However, a Celtic win would edge them a step closer to reclaiming the trophy and a coveted spot in the Champions League next season.
