Rangers, the Scottish Premiership defending champions, have lost three of their opening eight fixtures and have been dumped out of the Champions League courtesy of Swedish outfit Malmo.
Celtic have also had a mixed bag of results with two defeats, including the 2-1 reverse to FC Midtjylland from Denmark that saw them eliminated from Europe’s elite competition.
Both Glasgow giants have six points from three league games and will hope to put some early daylight between themselves and their old rivals before the international break.
Despite the inauspicious start to the campaign, Celtic are in fine scoring form with 13 league goals already. Rangers aren’t doing too badly in that department either, with seven goals from their opening three matches.

Rangers vs Celtic prediction
Three points in this clash could prove the difference come the end of the season, but with both squads having endured difficult European encounters in midweek, it wouldn’t be a surprise if some energy levels aren’t as high as they might otherwise have been.
They say that form goes out the window when these two old enemies meet, but we’re predicting a low-scoring draw.
