Both teams may be finished in Europe, Rangers may have already claimed the Scottish Premiership crown, but don't bother trying to tell their fans or the Celtic faithful that this one means any less than usual.

There's a 20-point gap between the sides going into the weekend but, on derby weekend, anything is possible.

Celtic won't go down quietly though. They will be nursing their wounds from a bruising 2020/21 campaign and will hope to at least rain on some of the Gers' parade this weekend. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Celtic v Rangers on TV and online.

Our prediction: Celtic v Rangers

Anything, absolutely anything, could happen here but on paper the game simply has to swing Rangers' way.

They have been scintillating throughout 2020/21 and, while Thursday's Europa League defeat was a true disappointment, that could focus minds on their last enormous encounter of the season.

Gerrard will attempt to instil calm in his players this weekend, knowing they can play without fear as champions, and if they turn up with their standard swagger, Celtic are unlikely to hold firm.

Our prediction: Celtic 1-2 Rangers (9/1 at bet365)
