Celtic’s nine-year reign as kings of Scotland is over.

This season has been an unparalleled disaster for the Hoops with almost everything going wrong.

They crashed out of the Champions League in the second qualifying round, losing at home to Ferencváros, before exiting the Europa League after just four group games.

Their four-year unbeaten run in domestic cups also came to an end, losing at home to Ross County in the League Cup last 16.

All of this would have been forgiven had they delivered ten-in-a-row but it’s been the meekest of title defences.

Celtic won just one of six league games in January and, a goalless draw at Dundee United in their last league game, confirmed Rangers’ title.

It’s been an unprecedented decade of success for Celtic but they’re now on course for their lowest points total in a season in which Rangers are in the top-flight since 2000.

Neil Lennon’s second spell as manager was ended on 24 February and the search for his successor is well underway.

Nevertheless, between now and the end of the season, there’s still two Old Firms to play and a Scottish Cup to try and retain.

There’s still plenty to play for so can Celtic win a Glasgow Derby for the first time since the 2019 League Cup Final?

Their last home derby win was way back on 31 March 2019.

Can Rangers complete an unbeaten season?

Alfredo Morelos

In complete contrast, this has been a season all Rangers fans everywhere will remember forever.

A fortnight ago, their 3-0 victory over St Mirren, followed by Celtic’s stalemate at Tannadice, secured their 55th title and first since 2011.

This means so much to Gers supporters everywhere given that the club have been all the way down to League Two and come back in that decade.

The Teddy Bears’ league record this season is astonishing: played 32, won 28, drawn four and lost zero.

If they win their remain six matches, they’ll match the points record set by Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic in 2016/17.

Since clinching the league title, Steven Gerrard’s side have been in action twice, seeing their European dream end.

Despite drawing 1-1 in the Czech Republic, on Thursday Slavia Praha won 2-0 at Ibrox to progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.

Both Kemar Roofe and Leon Balogun were sent off in that one.

Nevertheless, reaching the round of 16 isn’t to be sniffed at as they continue to punch above their weight on the continent.

This match was overshadowed by the alleged racist abuse suffered by Glen Kamara; UEFA need to take strong action for a change.

Their next tie in UEFA competition will be a Champions League qualifier in August so that’s something to very much look forward to.

First, they’re looking to win three Old Firm in the same season for the first time since 2004/05 having won 2-0 and 1-0 in this fixture thus far.

Will Rangers make it three straight wins at Celtic Park?

Since taking caretaker charge, John Kennedy has mainly lined up with a diamond formation so is likely to continue with this.

Scott Bain will continue in goal with £5 million summer signing Vasilis Barkas and prospect Conor Hazard left out.

Barkas’ future is very much up in the air after a very poor season.

At centre-back, Celtic are short of options with Christopher Jullien and Nir Bitton long-term injury concerns and Shane Duffy out of favour.

So, Kristoffer Ajer, who’s likely to leave in the summer, will partner 21-year-old Stephen Welsh.

At right-back, Everton loanee Jonjoe Kenny will start.

He’s the only option after both Jeremie Frimpong and Hatem Abd Elhamed left in January for Bayer Leverkusen and Hapoel Be’er Sheva respectively.

On the other side, another loanee, Diego Laxalt, is likely to keep his place ahead of Greg Taylor.

In midfield, captain Scott Brown and Callum McGregor will start with fans favourite Ismaila Soro missing out.

Ryan Christie and the leading contender for player of the season, David Turnbull, are expected to make up the quartet.

James Forrest will be on the bench after making his first appearance since September at Tannadice.

In attack, Odsonne Édouard has scored nine in his last ten appearance and six career goals against Rangers.

Mohamed Elyounoussi could continue as French Eddy’s partner up top.

Although, Albian Ajeti, Leigh Griffiths and Patryk Klimala are other striking options.

Will Celtic restore some pride for the green half of Glasgow?

While Celtic have had two weeks off, Rangers are likely to be very jaded having been in action just 64 hours ago, playing 20 minutes or so with just nine men.

Allan McGregor will continue in goal; the 39-year-old has now won 12 trophies across two spells at the club.

In defence, right-back James Tavernier, who’s scored 17 goals this season, is still injured.

So, 19-year-old Nathan Patterson is likely to deputise for the captain with Borna Barišić over on the left.

In the middle, Connor Goldson hasn’t missed a single minute of action in any competition this season.

He’ll continue at centre-back with Leon Balogun, potentially, remaining alongside.

Filip Helander and Jack Simpson are the other options; Nikola Katić is injured.

In midfield is where Gerrard would surely like to rotate from Thursday but he might not be able to due to limited options.

Glen Kamara could continue alongside Steven Davis with Scott Arfield slightly ahead.

Ryan Jack, who’s injured, is a big miss.

Out-wide, Ryan Kent will continue on the left but Ianis Hagi could replace Joe Aribo on the other flank.

Kemar Roofe came back from injured in mid-week but was sent off just minutes later.

In attack, Alfredo Morelos will be desperate to score his first-ever Old Firm goal.

Will the blue side of Glasgow be celebrating once again?
