After those few years in the wilderness, the Old Firm derby has returned as an absolute staple on the Scottish Premiership football calendar. The latest chapter of the century-old Glasgow rivalry is on today and we'll help you get hold of a Rangers vs Celtic live stream, no matter where in the world you are.

Rangers vs Celtic live stream - where and when

Today's game takes place at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, with kick-off at midday BST (which is 7am ET, 4am PT and 9pm AEST). 

As the seasons go on since Rangers' return to the top flight of Scottish football, this fixture grows in importance. The two teams are neck-and-neck at the top of the table, both with 100% winning records after three games of the 2019/20 Premiership season. Who will buckle first?

Celtic are of course the champions - for the last eight years running - and their squad unsurprisingly still looks like the strongest in the division. Neil Lennon is back at the helm this season after Brendan Rodgers' departure towards the start of 2019 and he'll be urging his players to remember the 5-0 destruction job they inflicted on their rivals back in April last year.

But this Rangers team, now managed by the legendary Steven Gerrard seem to get stronger with every month that goes by. They're desperate to make this the season that they break their almost decade-long wait for a championship, bringing in the likes of Jermain Defoe to give them the edge up front.

Keep reading to discover all the details you need in order to live stream Rangers vs Celtic, regardless of where you are on Earth this weekend.

Use a VPN to watch SPL football from outside your country

Let us take a wild guess...you booked your holiday or work trip abroad without checking first when the Old Firm games would be this season. Oops. Try and watch online coverage of your domestic broadcaster and you'll soon discover that you can't because of geo-blocking.

There's a really straight-forward and easy to use solution though. We recommend getting hold of a VPN, rather than scouring the web for some ropy illegal stream.


VPNs let you change the IP address of your computer (or mobile device) so you appear to be in a completely different location - in this case, one back in your home country. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend ExpressVPN as the best VPN service currently available.

Express VPN (which also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee) is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN and get 3 months extra free when you sign up for an annual plan.

And don't forget that a VPN isn't just for football...there's loads you can do with them. From unblocking restricted sites and watching Netflix in other countries to adding an extra layer of security for online shopping and banking.
