The hosts have not lost to Celtic since December 2019 – winning four of the past five derbies between the teams.

Sunday is their final encounter this season and if Steven Gerrard’s side avoid defeat to John Kennedy’s team it will mark the first time since Dick Advocaat’s reign in 1999-2000 that the Ibrox side have gone a full season unbeaten against their great rivals.

Rangers’ form has wobbled slightly since the league crown was reclaimed from their city rivals back at the start of March, however results haven’t been too bad and Steven Gerrard’s side are still unbeaten in the league – a record at stake on Sunday.

Rangers’ last game was the extraordinary penalty defeat to St Johnstone while Celtic have gone a couple of weeks without a win – defeated at Ibrox on their last visit in the Scottish Cup and then held to a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie.

Incidentally that trip to Ibrox was John Kennedy’s only defeat during his interim reign as manager.

Previous Meetings

It’s easy to remember as the sides have met in quick succession – twice since the league match on March 21.

As noted above Rangers are unbeaten in Old Firm encounters since 2019 but Celtic took a point from their last league meeting, at Parkhead last month.
