Celtic are currently 20 points adrift of their rivals in second, a disparity that ultimately lead to Neil Lennon's departure as boss last month.

With the likes of former star Roy Keane and Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch said to be waiting in the wings to take over at Parkhead, today's match offers an opportunity for Celtic's struggling player's to show their potential new boss what they're capable of.

The two sides have already met twice this season, with Rangers claiming bragging rights on both occasions. A Connor Goldson double was enough to earn a crucial 2-0 victory at Celtic Park in October, while a Callum McGregor own goal proved decisive for Steven Gerrard's side in January's return fixture.

While there's much debate over whether the home side will offer their old adversaries a guard of honour for their title triumph, you can reliably expect another fiery encounter between these two sides.

Here's how to live stream Celtic vs Rangers in the Scottish Premier League from anywhere today.

There had been question marks surrounding whether today's game would be called off after thousands of Rangers supporters lined the streets of Glasgow in breach of coronavirus regulations following confirmation of their Premiership title win earlier in the month. The game has however been green lit to take place amid stay at home warnings to fans from both clubs.
