There's a bit of aggro brewing between Brendan Rodgers and Philippe Clement - and the bookies believe it could easily boil over this weekend.

Rangers boss Clement was left rankling after his Celtic counterpart claimed his side are going to have 'fun' in the final derby of the season on Sunday. The defending champions know a win virtually secures a third straight title, while anything but a defeat leaves them in a strong position to see it out. That means the pressure is building on Rangers and the tensions are mounting ahead of the massive Parkhead clash.

Clement felt 'disrespected' by Rodgers and could that bleed into some unsavoury touchline scenes? Clement walked down the tunnel without shaking Ross County boss Don Cowie's hand last month and are taking odds on all the ways it could melt down come Sunday. They have 6/4 on no handshake between the managers before the game and under evens at 10/11 after the full-time whistle.

Clement to see a red card is 7/2 with Rodgers rated slightly less likely at 4/1 - but if you're fancying a Lennon-McCoist style touchline standoff then both managers to see red is at 9/1. Full list of odds (from
