Betting odds & tips

Celtic are favourites to beat Rangers at 21/20 with bet365. At 9/4 to win, Rangers are considered the underdogs.

Kyogo Furuhashi is 15/4 to be the game's first goalscorer, while Daizen Maeda is rated 9/2.

The last match between these sides finished 2-1 to Celtic and they have both been in good goalscoring form, so backing both teams to score at 4/5 is an appealing bet.

Celtic approach this match on a six-game winning streak that has given a big boost to their hopes of securing the Premiership title.

Rangers, meanwhile, have had a busy schedule and are still fighting on three fronts.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst's team are still in contention to win the Europa League, having reached the semi-finals.

Celtic, however, are looking for domestic dominance as they look to secure the treble after crashing out of the Europa Conference League in February.
