Can Rangers get their first-ever win over Old Firm rivals Celtic this 2016-17 football season, as the attention shifts to the Ibrox Stadium for the first Rangers vs Celtic clash in the Scottish league for the calendar year 2017? 


The two sides meet on Saturday, April 29, less than a week after they battled it out in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup 2016-17.

Celtic won that tie 2-0 to progress to the final of the competition against Aberdeen on May 27. Now, it remains to be seen if the Brendan Rodgers-coached team can do it again. Rangers are unbeaten in their previous seven matches at home, since losing to Celtic in December 2016.

The Celts, meanwhile, are undefeated from 27 matches this season and look menacing at the moment.

Needless to say, with the Scottish Premier League title already bagged, the likes of Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair -- the stars in the Celtic team -- will be playing for nothing but bragging rights.

Rangers, too, will be playing for nothing but pride.
