Celtic have played theRangers three times already this season and will also take them on in the Scottish Premiership ahead of this Scottish Cup semi-final with the league match taking place at Celtic Park on 8 April.

Back in September Celtic ran out emphatic winners with a 4-0 win in the league at Celtic Park and the two sides met again at the start of January sharing the spoils in a 2-2 draw at Ibrox, a result that suited Celtic much better than theRangers who were hoping to eat into Celtic’s nine points advantage in the league.

Then on 26 February the venue was Hampden and the occasion was the League Cup Final. Two goals from Kyogo gave Celtic the advantage and although theRangers did pull one back the Cup ended up back at Paradise.

theRangers won the Scottish Cup last season for the first time in their history and will be desperate to retain it in order to prevent Ange Postecoglou’s side from going on to win a Treble, with their chances of challenging for the league seemingly fading away with each relentless Celtic victory.  They certainly talk a good game ahead of meetings with Celtic but it’s Ange Postecoglou’s side who are top of the league, with one trophy in the cabinet and with an unbeaten record in Glasgow Derby matches this season as Celtic have been content to do their talking on the park.
