Bitter Glasgow rivals Rangers and Celtic meet on Saturday in what is an eagerly anticipated Old Firm clash at Ibrox.

The hosts sit in second place following their promotion back to the Scottish top tier but are a whopping 16 points behind the table-topping Bhoys.

The last time the teams met in the league Celtic ran rampant at Parkhead, beating their cross-city enemies 5-1.

Brendan Rodger’s men have followed this up with a 1-0 victory, at Ibrox, in the League Cup and as such Mark Warburton’s men will feel they have revenge on the cards.

Although a Rangers victory would exact Celtic’s first defeat of the new season, it surely will not have any bearing on the destination of the 2016-17 Scottish title.

However, local bragging rights are at stake in this encounter between two age-old rivals in a clash that is expected to be full of passion and vitriol.

The two starting line-ups for the clash between Rangers and Celtic are here.

Rangers – Foderingham, Tavernier, Hill, Kiernan, Wilson, Garner, Miller, McKay, Windass, Halliday, Holt

Celtic – Gordon, Lustig, Simunovic, Sviatchenko, Izaguirre, Brown, McGregor, Armstrong, Forrest, Sinclair, Dembele
