One of the fiercest derbies in world football has a very lopsided feel to it today, as Rangers host Celtic in a top-of-the-table clash... between two sides separated by a whopping 16 points. Read on as we give you the lowdown on how to get a live stream of Rangers vs Celtic and watch the Old Firm Derby no matter where you are in the world.

Rangers vs Celtic live stream

This latest chapter of the Old Firm rivalry is set to played out at Ibrox Stadium on Saturday, with kick-off set for 12.30pm GMT, making it a 7.30am ET/4.30am PT start in the US, and an 11.30pm AEDT late-night event for footy fans tuning in from Australia. Watch your preferred coverage wherever you are with a good VPN in your starting XI.

The Hoops have three games in hand, but that's not nearly enough to close the deficit, and their hopes of a 10th title in a row will surely be as good as gone if they don't end Rangers' unbeaten run today.

Steven Gerrard's men have been on a different level this season, and though we're only at the midway stage of the campaign, few would bet against them going on to lift the SPL trophy for the first time since 2011.

However, Glasgow bragging rights are just as important, and Neil Lennon will be desperate for revenge after seeing his side go down 2-0 at the hands of their bitterest rivals at Celtic Park in October.

Connor Goldson was the Gers' main man on the day, scoring once in each half to down a Celtic team that didn't manage a shot on target. 

The Bhoys are on a good run of form now, with four wins from their last four SPL games, scoring 10 and conceding none in the process, but there can be no doubt over who the favourites are. Rangers have won 13 in a row in the league, and would love nothing better than to humiliate their rivals.

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