Scottish Premiership: Celtic vs Rangers preview, team news, prediction and tips
February 1


Celtic and Rangers will face off in the Scottish Premiership matchday 22 at Parkhead on Wednesday. The kick-off is at 21:45 CEST.


The second edition of the 2021/22 Old Firm Derby is set to take place at the Celtic Park in around 24 hours with both sides coming into this encounter in all but perfect form. Celtic have won 12 out of their last 13 matches across all competitions while drawing the other one and will play hosts to their bitter rivals on the back of a five straight wins, including a 1-0 victory over Dundee United last Saturday.

Rangers, for their part, are also on a 13-match unbeaten streak in all competitions right now but their current streak includes 10 wins and three draws, including a 3-3 draw at Ross County over the weekend. As things stand now, however, it's the Gers who are leading the Scottish top flight table with 56 points while the Bhoys sit in second just two points adrift of Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men.

Team news

David Turnbull, Karamoko Dembele, Kyogo Furuhashi and Albian Ajeti will not feature for Ange Postecoglou's side this time around through an injury while Nnamdi Ofoborh, Filip Helander, Steven Davis, Ianis Hagi and Leon Balogun will miss Rangers' trip across the Glasgow for the same reason. Alfredo Morelos, in turn, is unavailable for the visitors due to his international duties.


It's been a while since Celtic claimed their last victory in the Old Firm Derby as the Gers remain unbeaten against the Celts in seven games since 2019, including a 1-0 win in the reverse league fixture in August. On the other hand, it was Steven Gerrard who led Rangers in their latest clash with the Celts, so it remains to be seen if Van Bronckhorst manages to continue the current positive trend for his old-new club. What we do expect from the upcoming fixture is goals at both ends at Parkhead, given both sides' respective performaces of late.
