Parkhead will be bouncing today if Celtic can secure an Old Firm victory over rivals Rangers - effectively guaranteeing the Scottish Premiership title in the process.

The Bhoys welcome their neighbours from across Glasgow boasting a six-point advantage in the title race with this the first of four remaining games.

Six league wins on the bounce have opened up a sizeable advantage for Celtic, who beat Rangers in their last SPFL meeting at Ibrox earlier this month before falling in a Scottish Cup semi-final meeting only a fortnight ago.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have struggled to juggle their domestic and European exploits but, after defeat to RB Leipzig in the Europa League on Thursday, can retain hope of defending their SPFL crown with a win on their neighbours’ home turf.


Date, kick-off time and venue

Celtic vs Rangers is scheduled for a 12pm BST kick-off today, Sunday, May 1, 2022.

Celtic Park in Glasgow will host the match.
