Celtic vs Rangers LIVE – Huge early missed chance from Ryan Kent – Old Firm latest updates

THE blockbuster derby showdown between Celtic and Rangers is underway.

Ange Postecoglou's men can go nine clear with only three to play – and a vastly superior goal difference – with a win over their Glasgow rivals but the picture could still change if Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men can reduce the gap with a win at Celtic Park.

Rangers will be determined to make up for their Europa League defeat to RB Leipzig while Celtic will hope their travels have taken too much out of the Ibrox men ahead of this lunchtime showdown.

    DON'T GET EMBARRASSED

    Kris Boyd dismisses claims that Rangers have nothing to lose today and will leave Celtic Park embarrassed if they lose heavily.

    He insists his former club could have done without today's match in the middle of their European ties.

    He told Sky Sports: "You've got everything to lose on derby day!

    "There's no doubt that Rangers could've done without this game sandwiched inbetween two massive semi-final ties.

    "We saw last week that Giovanni van Bronckhorst was able to leave a good few out.

    "I don't think he can do that today because the last thing you want is to be embarrassed against your rivals."
