What channel is Rangers v Celtic on? How to watch Old Firm match, early team news, referee and VAR appointments

The third Glasgow derby of the season takes place this weekend – and could have big ramifications on the title race

Rangers and Celtic meet this weekend in an eagerly-anticipated Old Firm derby that could go a long way to deciding the destination of the title.

With seven rounds of fixtures remaining, Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic team lead second-placed Rangers, managed by Philippe Clement, by one point, although the Gers have a game in hand, which is against Dundee at Dens Park next week. In one of the closest title races for years, this derby – and the post-split encounter at Celtic Park – are set to have a significant bearing on who is crowned champions in May.
