Oct 23: Rangers v Celtic Preview


Okay, one or two things have changed since that match. 1. Joey Barton’s been absent for Rangers, 2. Celtic’s Champions League hopes are up in smoke, 3. This a cup semi-final and it’s at Hampden where Celtic have struggled in recent seasons.

The fact Celtic were well beaten by Borussia Monchengladbach last Wednesday while their rivals have had their feet up for nine days since beating Inverness had to be taken into account.

But there was no travelling involved and I’m sure Brendan Rodgers will have his men re-energised for the Betfred Cup clash as he eyes his first final in Glasgow.

Mark Warburton’s have lost only at Aberdeen since their thumping at Parkhead but haven’t improved enough to worry their neighbours.

They will though point to last season’s win on penalties in the Scottish Cup semis but that was when Ronny Deila was in charge.

Celtic are a best 8-11 at Betfred to win in 90 minutes with Rangers 9-2 at Marathonbet and the draw 3-1 with McBookie and Ladbrokes. To qualify for the Final it’s Celtic 1-3 and Rangers 9-4.

I don’t see another 5-1 but something like 3-1 or 3-2 – if Kolo Toure has another mare – is on the cards so consider Celtic -1 at 13-8 with Ladbrokes or to score 3+ goals at 2-1 with bet365.

Moussa Dembele was a hat-trick hero in the last meeting and is 5-4 at bet365 to hit another. If Leigh Griffiths starts back him at 6-5 with Skybet.

Dembele’s exploits in the first Old Firm meeting triggered Betfred‘s famous Double Delight and Hat-Trick Heaven offer where if a player who scores first adds another the price is doubled and trebled for a hat-trick.

If you back Dembele to score first with Betfred and he hits three you’ll be paid out at 9-1. Same with Griffiths.

Kenny Miller hit Rangers’ goal at Inverness with a superb volley and is 9-1 to break the deadlock and 7-2 to net at any time. Celtic to win with both teams to score returns 11-4 and Rangers and btts pays 8-1.

    I can’t wait for this game and it’s no surprise that I believe CELTIC will
    be dominant. Many of my friends predict a low scorer but I don’t think so. Im hopeful of a 3-1 or 4-1 victory for Celtic. I can’t see Rangers scoring more than one goal, if they even get one that is. For the game I’m on Rogic First Goalscorer @ 9/1 and I’all be having a few quid on Sviatchenko first and last @ 40/1. The big centre back has already scored against Rangers and he’s always in the box for set pieces. He was in the box against Man City and almost scored and I expect him to have chances against Rangers. Both prices are with Betfred so there’s every chance of a DD/HH. On the cards market a sending off is far too short for me so instead my money is going on Toure to be booked. He made a few mistakes midweek and he’ll be worried about being caught out against Rangers. Toure is 11/4 to be booked with Skybet but is 7/1 at 888sport.

    Recommended Bets:

    Tom Rogic First @ 9/1
    Sviatchenko First @ 40/1
    Sviatchenko Last @ 40/1
    Toure to be shown a card @ 7/1

    Good luck everyone
