CELTIC go into today’s 12.30pm derby showdown knowing a victory will propel the champions towards their third successive title.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are three points ahead of Philippe Clement’s Ibrox side as they prepare to lock horns at a 60,000 sell-out Parkhead this afternoon.

The Hoops are unbeaten in the previous three all-Glasgow duels this season and, after the latest chapter in the derby story, they only have to face two games – Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Wednesday and St Mirren in Paradise a week today – to complete the 2023/24 Premiership campaign.
