Celtic are nine points clear of the Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership; both sides are unbeaten in the league since the World Cup break in the league.
Ange Postecoglou is looking for his players to create another “special moment” against Rangers as Michael Beale concedes the title is Celtic’s to “throw away”.
The only league points either side has dropped since the World Cup break came in January’s 2-2 draw at Ibrox, while Celtic beat their rivals at Hampden Park in March to retain the League Cup. The Ibrox side have not won at Parkhead in their last five games.
Celtic beat Rangers 2-1 at Hampden last month and swept them aside 4-0 in their previous meeting in the east end of Glasgow last September.
All eyes will be on Celtic’s midfield today when the teamsheet is released. Reo Hatate will be absent from the match-day squad and Ange does love a derby day curve ball with his starting elven which usually makes him look like a genius by the time the full-time whistle goes.
With the teams just announced via the social accounts this is how the champions will line up today:
