The Old Firm


The Old Firm returns to Sportsters on Sunday 11th of March and we’re open from 11am for the midday kick-off!

Based on recent results and the last meeting between the sides on the 30th of December 2017, the competitiveness of the Old Firm derby seems to have returned. While Celtic will remain favourites, the strengthening of Rangers’ squad over January and their performance in the 0-0 draw at Celtic Park will give them confidence for another positive result.

The other big change since the last meeting for Rangers is that Graeme Murty has now been confirmed as manager until at least the end of the season. The consistency this brings will certainly benefit Rangers and this has been shown in results since his confirmation (64.71% win rate).

Celtic are also not perhaps the clear favourites they once were. The 4-0 loss to Hearts at Tynecastle broke the unbeaten run which lasted 69 games and a more recent 1-0 loss to Kilmarnock at the start of February has made it two losses this season. On their day though, it’s clear to see that Celtic are the best team in Scotland by quite a stretch. Will it be their day?
