AFTER all the nonsense that's taken place of the park the Old Firm will be hoping to do Scottish football proud on the pitch on Sunday.

It's the seventh meeting between Rangers and Celtic this season and a possible title decider.

I’m predicting an action-packed thriller that will make the nation smile again – and that means incidents galore, penalties, red cards and best of all goals.

William Hill are offering 7-1 on a terrific treble – both teams to score, a red card flashed and a penalty awarded.

Rangers and Celtic both netted four in midweek so look on form and between them they’ve been awarded six penalties – four converted – in eight days.

During that spell their opponents have seen four men take an early bath and a red tomorrow pays 6-4 with Hills and Betfred.

A penalty awarded is 9-4 with Hills, no 1-3, scored 11-4 and missed 10-1. Hills go 1-3 on no penalties, 5-2 for one or two and 10-1 for three or more.

The game’s being billed a title decider but of course there could still be many twists and turns. What’s clear is if either side wins they will be in the driving seat with the other a blur in their rear mirror.

Celtic, one point behind Gers but with a game in hand at Inverness, are 5-2 with Hills to win tomorrow and lift the title. Gers are 2-1. Gers are 7-1 to lose but recover to be champs with Celtic 9-2.

There is little between the sides and despite Celtic’s bigger squad Walter Smith’s men can match up to them on the day as they proved in the Co-op Cup Final.

It’s a tough call and I’m sitting on the fence by taking draw at 12-5 at

That will suit Celtic slightly better and almost certainly take the title race to the wire with Hills now just 8-15 on a repeat of Helicopter Sunday.

Rangers to win tomorrow are a best 6-4 with bet365 and with Celtic 19-10 at totesport and Ladbrokes. Both teams should score and it pays 5-6 (Chandler).

Gary Hooper and Nikica Jelavic are both 5-6 with Hills in a match bet and to score first it’s Hooper 6-1 (Coral) and Jelavic 7-1 (Coral).

Penalty king Whittaker, who scored two against the Arabs and missed one, is 14-1 at Ladbrokes to score first and 5-1 (Hills) at any time.

Kris Commons, who is now on Celtic’s penalties after Anthony Stokes’ miss against Aberdeen, is 15-2 with firms including Paddy Power to break the deadlock.

In Sunday's other SPL clash I’m on St Mirren to follow Hamilton’s repeat last week and win at Hibs.

Saints should be safe from the drop despite that result but will be confident from taking something from Easter Road.

The Buddies are a biggest 7-2 with Paddy Power and Betfred with Hibs 19-20 at Chandler. The draw pays 5-2 with firms including Coral.

Saints' Michael Higdon is the player to consider for first goals at 8-1 with Blue Square and I'll be on both teams to score at 21-20 with Coral.


  • Rangers v Celtic draw (12-5,
  • Hibs v St Mirren both teams to score (21-20, Coral)
