Since the post-season split in the middle of April, title holders Celtic have posted back-to-back wins in the Championship Group in order to boost their chances of recording a third successive Premiership crown and their first following the return of Brendan Rodgers as manager last summer.

Although Hearts are set to be crowned as the best of the rest in the Premiership, they were simply no match for Celtic last Saturday, when Kyogo Furuhashi’s brace and a second-half penalty from goalscoring midfielder Matt O’Riley secured a 3-0 victory for the Bhoys.

Heading into the final three matches of the Premiership season, Celtic are currently sitting pretty in first position, three points ahead of second-placed Rangers, with games against the Gers, Kilmarnock and St Mirren to come before an Old Firm Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park on May 25.

Since the beginning of March, Celtic’s record at Celtic Park has been worthy of the Premiership title, with the Bhoys winning all three league matches at their Glasgow base by an aggregate score of 9-1, leaving St Johnstone, St Mirren and Hearts all in their wake.

Following a damaging three-game winless run prior to the post-season slit – picking up just two points during that period – Rangers have managed to get their title challenge back on track over the past fortnight, winning 2-1 at St Mirren before beating Kilmarnock 4-1 seven days later.

Rangers looked on course for a fatal defeat in terms of their Premiership dreams when Kilmarnock raced ito the lead at Ibrox through a James Tavernier own goal, but strikes from Fabio Silva, Ben Davies, Tom Lawrence and John Souttar ensured a relatively comfortable afternoon in the end for the hosts.

With Celtic, surprise package Dundee and Hearts left to come in this Premiership campaign, Philippe Clement’s side know that defeat at Parkhead on Saturday would see them fall to six points behind the Hoops with only two games remaining, effectively ending Rangers’ title ambitions.

Celtic Team News

Celtic almost have a clean bill of health ahead of the second-last Old Firm derby of the season, with only James McCarthy (hamstring) taking up a spot in the medical room.

Impressing massively since returning from an Achilles injury, Callum McGregor will start alongside leading marksman O’Riley and Reo Hatate in the engine room.

Rangers Team News

Rangers are light of options in their backline, with centre-back Connor Goldson sidelined for the remainder of the campaign due to a knee issue.

Following his replacement at half time during the win over Kilmarnock, Leon Balogun could drop out of the XI to make room for former Sheffield United man Ben Davies.
