Our tipster is expecting plenty of goalmouth action when Steven Gerrard's Gers play host to Brendan Rodgers' Hoops in Saturday's Old Firm derby

Celtic will extend their advantage at the top of the Scottish Premiership with victory at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.

The Hoops claimed a thrilling 4-3 victory against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Wednesday, while the Gers were held at home by Hibernian.

Celtic have been the dominant force in this fixture in recent years, for Brendan Rodgers' men are unbeaten inside 90 minutes against their bitter rivals since 2012, winning seven of the last eight matches between the teams.

Latest odds

Indeed, William Hill go 11/4 (3.75) that Steven Gerrard's side draw level with the Hoops on points at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with victory in Govan.

Celtic are 19/20 (1.95) favourites to continue their impressive run against the 'Gers with a win in this one. William Hill offer 5/2 (3.50) that the match remains deadlocked at the end of 90 minutes.

Team news

The fitness of Connor Goldson, Ryan Kent, Scott Arfield and Gareth McAuley will be monitored by Gerrard ahead of kick-off. Borna Barisic is definitely out for the hosts.

Tom Rogic misses out for Celtic as he has been called up to Australia's Asian Cup squad.​ Eboue Kouassi is definitely out due to injury, while Kieran Tierney is rated as extremely doubtful.

Solid Hoops?

Rangers have drawn a blank in five of their last six matches against Celtic and William Hill offer 13/8 (2.63) that Rodgers' men keep a clean sheet here.

The same firm go 23/10 (3.30) that Celtic win to nil - as they have in four of their last five victories against Rangers.

Prediction

Between them, these teams have scored an impressive 88 league goals so far this season and there is potential, then, for goals to flow when these bitter rivals lock horns.

William Hill's even money (2.0) quote for more than two goals to be scored could well prove popular with punters ahead of Saturday's showdown in Glasgow.
