What channel is Rangers v Celtic Old Firm game on? How to watch, TV channel, previous meetings

The lead in the SPFL Premiership is unlikely to change on Sunday – but the massive top-of-the-table clash between Rangers and Celtic could have a dramatic influence on the destination of this season’s league title.

Ange Postecoglou takes the league leaders to the defending champions for the lunchtime kick-off in Scotland's big match with a three point lead and goal difference advantage of 14.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side could draw level on points if they can repeat their home win earlier in the season, though if Celtic can win as they did at Parkhead earlier this year the gap at the top extends to six – a significant gulf at this stage of the season.

With three points and another Old Firm game to come after the league split a draw would leave things finely poised, but there is no doubt the eyes of football fans will be on Glasgow’s south side this Sunday.

Here’s how to watch the top of the table clash ...

Previous meetings?

The teams have been difficult to separate this season winning a meeting each so far. Rangers won at Ibrox in August through Filip Helander’s second-half header in what proved to be the final Celtic appearances for Odsonne Edouard and Ryan Christie. The points stayed with the home side in the second fixture too, which Celtic won 3-0 in early February.

Anything else?

This is the first of an Old Firm triple-header as the season moves towards a close. After Sunday they’re scheduled to meet again at Hampden for the Scottish Cup semi-final before Giovanni van Bronckhorst takes Rangers to Celtic Park for the final league meeting of the season. However the post-split fixture date has yet to be finalised.
