Some people think the Merseyside derby is Saturday’s match of the day – they’d be wrong.
Glasgow is the place to be as the biggest rivals in football battle it out…while also playing some football.
Celtic and Rangers go head to head in the first Old Firm match of a pivotal season and, with little between them at the top of the table, this one looks set to be a bigger slugfest than Trump v Biden.
Read on to check out our top Old Firm Odds Picks for the big match.

Our Top Pick – The Draw – 5/2 at BetVictor
Rangers edged it 2-1 last time the teams battled it out in December and we’re expecting another tight match here.
On the back of the international fortnight there’s fitness and covid related concerns for both Neil Lennon and Steven Gerrard.
Celtic fans will be itching to see if Odsonne Edouard (AKA French Eddy) will be fit to play following his positive Covid test, while Rangers fans will be desperate for Alfredo Morelos to finally pop his Old Firm goal cherry.
Both managers would take a draw now and we can see it ending honours even come full-time.
It may not end up a high-scoring classic but it’ll be a tasty match no matter the final score.
Our Extra Pick – Under 2.5 Match Goals – 10/11 at bet365
Yes, there’s been some Old Firm goalfests in recent seasons but five of the last seven have seen under 2.5 goals scored in the match.
The two teams have only conceded a total of nine goals between them in the league so far, and that defensive stinginess looks set to continue.
Our Long Shot – No Goalscorer – 10/1 at bet365
No one wants a dull 0-0 but both teams could park the bus, so the tempting odds for no goalscorer aren’t to be sniffed at.
TOP TIP – If you ever fancy a 0-0 snooze fest, alway back no goalscorer rather than the 0-0 correct score.
If there’s an own goal and the match ends 1-0, your correct score bet would be a loser.
However, own goals don’t count for the first goalscorer market so your no goal scorer bet would still be a winner – bonus!
