Celtic v Rangers: Pick of the stats

  • Celtic have only lost one of their last eight league meetings with Rangers (W5 D2), a 3-0 defeat in May 2023.

  • In all competitions, Rangers have won just two of their last 17 away Old Firm derbies (D4 L11), winning back-to-back visits to Celtic in December 2019/October 2020 under Steven Gerrard.

  • This will be the 10th time that Celtic have faced Rangers in their final league match of a calendar year (W3 D3 L3 in the first nine). The Hoops have lost the last two such occasions: 2-1 in 2019 and 1-0 in 2018.

  • Since Philippe Clement’s first league game in charge of Rangers, the Gers have won more points (28) and conceded fewer goals (three) than any other side in the Scottish Premiership, winning nine of their 10 games under the Belgian.

  • Rangers have won their final league match in each of the last five calendar years since a 0-0 draw at Celtc in 2017. Two of those wins have been against the Bhoys (2018, 2019).

  • Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers has won 11 and lost just one of his 14 Old Firm derbies in charge of Celtic (D2); his win rate of 79% is the best of any manager in this fixture’s history (for either club) in major competitions.

  • This will be Philippe Clement’s first Old Firm derby as Rangers manager; none of the club’s last seven managers to face Celtic won their first such meeting in charge in all competitions (D3 L4) since Ally McCoist won 4-2 in September 2011. The last Rangers manager to win his first away game with the club at Celtic was Walter Smith in August 1991 (2-0).

  • Celtic’s Kyogo Furuhashi has scored four goals in his last three league starts against Rangers, including a brace at Celtic Park in April last season.
