Everything you need to know ahead of the Scottish Premiership fixture

Rangers will look to keep themselves within touching distance of Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table ahead of next weekend’s Old Firm derby when they entertain Kilmarnock on Sunday.

The Ibrox side are three points behind the league leaders, who also have a superior goal difference of +5, with just four matches of the season remaining. Celtic host Hearts on Saturday and could go six points clear with a victory by the time Rangers kick off a day later.

However, Philippe Clement’s side will also be ready to pounce on any Celtic slip-up with Hearts aiming to inflict a third successive defeat on the Hoops following their 2-0 victories at Parkhead in December and Tynecastle in March.
