Rangers v Celtic | Saturday 23rd September 2017, 12:00 | Sky Sports
Rangers made signings in the summer designed to close the gap on Celtic – but it’s still too big.
There have been highs and lows for the Ibrox support this season as well as positives and negatives regarding the new boys. Many will feature in the first Old Firm derby at lunchtime on Saturday and don’t look ready to take on the all-conquering champions who won’t have many debutants on show.
Last season Celtic won five and drew one of the six meetings and two of the victories were 5-1. Victory at Dundee in the Betfred Cup quarter-final extended their unbeaten domestic run to 56 and when Brendan Rodgers suffers his first defeat it’s likely to be at Ibrox or Pittodrie.
But I can’t see it being Saturday and bookies agree. I reckon Celtic will win by two or three – maybe 3-1. So Celtic -1 is the shout at 19/10 with BetVictor.
Ross County v Hibs | Saturday 23rd September 2017, 15:00
Elsewhere in the Premiership back goals as usual when Hibs play.
All their league games have seen both score and they head to face Ross County whose three home games have also landed BTTS.
Both Teams To Score in Dingwall is 17/20 at Sportingbet and that looks big.
