But Steven Gerrard and co are determined to end Celtic’s dominance in Scotland and will be eager to hold on in the lunchtime kick-off.

Celtic v Rangers: Who has won more Scottish Premiership titles?

Celtic claimed their 51st title last season but they are still behind Rangers’ record of 54. Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibernian all have four league crowns.

Celtic’s success last term made it nine league crowns in the row, winning it every year since 2011/12. Rangers were the last team to claim glory in 2010/11.

The Hoops have not finished a league season out of the top two since the 1994/95 campaign.

Celtic’s nine league titles in a row has matched what they did between 1966 and 1974 and what Rangers achieved between 1989 and 1997.

No team has ever won ten league crowns on the bounce in Scotland but that is something Celtic are eager to secure this term.
