Form Guide

Celtic – WDWDW

The Hoops have clinched the league title within their last five games and are still unbeaten domestically.

But they have picked up two draws in their last three league games.

Nevertheless, they managed to beat Rangers 2-0 at Hampden Park and are well on course for the treble.

Rangers – DDWWL

The Gers are unbeaten in the league under Pedro Caixinha.

A couple of draws against league strugglers Kilmarnock and Motherwell may have worried some fans.

And the Portuguese boss will not have endeared himself to the Gers’ faithful during their drab loss at Hampden.

But the Ibrox club’s 3-0 thrashing of Aberdeen had them buzzing.

What’s at stake?

Celtic have won the league and are now focused on seeing out the season unbeaten.

As well as preventing their rivals going down in history as invincibles, Rangers are looking to strengthen their hold on a Europa League place.

The Gers need seven points from their last five matches to ensure they finish above St Johnstone and return to European football after a five-year exile.
