Rangers vs Celtic

, KO: 16:00 Apr 18, 2021, Ibrox

RANGERS and Celtic clash in a Scottish Cup showdown at Ibrox where fireworks are guaranteed on and off the pitch these days.

With Steven Gerrard's side long since having collected the Premiership, they are determined to add the Scottish Cup to that trophy haul, but have the holders in their path, who have finally shown plenty of signs of waking up from a season-long coma.

John Kennedy appears to have got a tune from his under-achieving deposed champions and their 6-0 demolition of Livingston last week was their best display of the season.

He's gone for more width in his side and will be desperate to test out much-hyped kid Nathan Patterson on Sunday, although much may depend on whether James Forrest is fully fit.

There's been not much indication that Rangers have let their standards slip since clinching the title and they look on course for an unbeaten league campaign.

But this is not only vital for who lifts the Scottish Cup this season, it could also be used as a marker for next term too.

How the bookies view this

Rangers are the favourites with home advantage and can be backed at 6/4 with William Hill's Tonybet's 2/1 for a Celtic win will have its backers and the draw – which was the outcome of the last encounter between the teams – is 5/2 with McBookie.com.

Recent head to head

The 1-1 draw at Parkhead last month was the first stalemate between the clubs in 13 games. Rangers haven't lost to Celtic in their last four meetings.

Players to watch

Alfredo Morelos finally broke his goalscoring duck in this game in the last meeting and he's 11/8 to score anytime with McBookie.com, with six goals in his last ten games.

Mo Elyounoussi is in fine form for Celtic with three goals in his last two games and he seems to be in a good place. He's 13/8 with McBookie.com to net at Ibrox.

Anything else catch the eye?

Despite Rangers' romp to the title, you get the feeling this Celtic team are beginning to motor at what is of course now the wrong time of the season for them. They look too big at 2/1 to grab their first win in this fixture this campaign.

This could be a real slug-fest too and with the match being played to a finish, it's entirely possible goals could be on the menu. The 10/11 for over 2.5 goals with Genting Bet must have a chance.

The old favourite of Scott Brown and Alfredo Morelos to be booked double has trapped on two of the three games this season and in the other one, Morelos was booked and Brown only had 18 minutes to make an impact. The 11/4 Betbuilder with bet365 has to be value.

    4/1 for the yellow card double with Sky bet in the Glesga Derby favourite of Scott Brown and Alfredo Morelos to be booked it has a good chance in what will be Celtic’s most decorated players of the last generation of domination with Scott Brown hoping to make more history by winning 5 scottish cups in a row.

    David Turnbull to score from outside the box at 28/1 is big price in my opinion and I will also be having a nibble at that most of his goals and Celtic’s better form of late have resulted in this shot on site policy form the young scot.
