Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers turns the screw on rivals Rangers

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers turns the screw on rivals Rangers

Few of the 50,000 Rangers fans who witnessed their side claim a 3-2 win over Celtic in March 2012 would have imagined that six years later they'd still be waiting to celebrate another Old Firm victory in the Scottish Premiership.

While the rejuvenated Gers have lost only to Hibernian in their last 12 matches, Rodgers has not been defeated in eight games against Rangers since taking over the Parkhead club in 2016.

"It's something I'm really looking forward to".

"I was always taught, "just be careful what you wish for", that's how I was brought up".

Sunderland must be anxious about losing players in the summer window with a drop down to League One looking more likely than not right now.

"We've got a lot of work to do and we'll need to perform better and more consistently in that game", the Northern Irishman told the club's official website.

"For me, I can only control our own group".

"But in the dressing room we all thought we could be as close".

Going into Sunday's clash, Rangers find themselves as Celtic's nearest title challengers with just six points separating the two sides at the top of the league table, although the Hoops have played one game less than their arch-rivals.

"There's huge pressure on Rangers in the game but for us, we'll have a good working week and go into that game and work as well as well can".

"We will do what we have always done, which is to respect the other team that we play, no matter who it is".

"The three points are on offer for us and if we get them then we put ourselves in a fantastic place to go and finish the season off really strongly", he added.

"That has always been the message in these types of games".

Celtic are going to be without Leigh Griffiths through injury, but Stuart Armstrong and Dedryck Boyata will return.

"This is the biggest test we now have and we have got a group of players who are really positive, really hungry and desperate to do well, which is a great thing for a manager".
