Rangers and Celtic to keep winning

Rangers could be ten points clear already when Celtic take to the Tynecastle pitch on Sunday.

There have been more mooted suggestions that the SPL's big two should move down south and join the Premier League, well if they are to do that they will need to put in some big performances.

Rangers v Hibernian

The Gers host a Hibs side who finally ended their horror record at home with a 3-2 win over St Johnstone midweek. Rangers themselves had a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock.

Ally McCoist's side have had seven shutouts this season, the most of any other team in the league. Despite their financial problems the fact they have no European football has been a positive for the blue side of Glasgow. They recorded the first Old Firm win and have managed to build on that platform.

The home side are 2/9 to take three points and extend their lead at the top of the SPL while Hibs are a massive 12/1 to cause a shock. The draw is 5/1.

Rangers only slip this season came at Ibrox when they drew on the opening day of the season with Hearts, but since then they have been clinical.

Nikica Jelavic was pivotal to breaking of Kilmarnock's resistance midweek and the striker is 11/4 to be the first to hit the back of the net on Saturday. You can also back him at 8/13 to score anytime.

It may be a bit of a stretch to see Rangers covering a two goal handicap at 29/20, but 8/15 doesn't seem like great value minus the one goal.

Hearts v Celtic

Celtic looked to have registered their first win of the Europa League when they went into the 88th minute with a 1-0 lead over Udinese. But Gary Hooper clumsily gave away a penalty to help the Italians take a point.

The Bhoys (3/4) have managed to keep a clean sheet in both their last two league games, the 88th minute penalty against Udiense was the first goal conceded in over 270 minutes of football.

Gary Hooper will no doubt lead the line for the Glaswegians as they look to get something from probably the third best side in Scotland.  Hooper is 9/2 to score first and 6/5 anytime. Mohamed Bangura looked dangerous against Udinese, but more in a midfield attacking role than out and out striker but he may be worth a cheeky punt at 5/4 for anytime scorer.

Stephen Elliot, despite only being at the club for over a year is already a hero and he has managed to bag a few goals this season. You can back the Irish player to open the scoring at 9/1.

Celtic's defence looked solid against Udinese and even though the price on them to win already seems quite generous you can back them  to claim all three points with a clean sheet at 17/10 and 21/20 to keep a clean sheet.

I reckon a Glasgow double at just over 11/10 should be the bet of the weekend. Rangers will look to extend their lead, but Celtic need to win and they will feel hard done by from their Europa League game.
