THE Daily Record’s Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) shares his thoughts on the Sunday’s mouthwatering Old Firm Derby as Celtic host arch-rivals Rangers.
Celtic v Rangers | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 12:00 | Sky Sports
The big question this weekend will be: Can Rangers end Celtic’s Old Firm dominance?
And the fact it’s even being asked shows how much uplift there’s been at Ibrox since Steven Gerrard arrived.
Rangers’ revival has coincided with Celtic’s apparent decision to stand still rather than allow Brendan Rodgers to increase the gap between the sides.
I get stick from Gers fans for consistently tipping Celtic to win the derby but I bet with my head not my heart and Rodgers is unbeaten in 11 meetings with nine of those victories.
The last two were 4-0 and 5-0 and prompted Rangers to push the boat put to tempt Gerrard away from his cushy number at Liverpool.
If it wasn’t for the fact Gers had a tiring trip to Russia on Thursday and battled to the end with nine men I’d be backing them to win at a best 5/1 with bet365.
I’m going to please those fans who dig me up by tipping Rangers not to lose at 7/5 with bet365.
