Old Firm reunited: Celtic, Rangers renew rivalry in Scotland

But he still got a roasting from Jock Wallace.

Barton and Senderos Monday the hoops what a result for @celticfc.

He said: "I don't know if Barton realises the consequences of what he says here".

"We are disappointed we have maybe not performed as well, but we are still going into it with belief in what we are doing".

However, the Ibrox side has struggled this season, drawing with Hamilton and Kilmarnock (last season's second and third worst sides in the top flight) and narrowly scrapping a win over Motherwell with a last minute Kenny Miller goal, something that will only benefit Aberdeen.

On his performance, Brown said: "Exceptional, start to finish".

"If Rangers are underdogs for the game, then Scott is underdog for that battle, because Joey's boosted himself up".

Rogic's missed penalty was the difference as Rangers eliminated Celtic in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup in April and the mercurial 23-year-old will be determined to make his mark with a big performance.

He said: "Moussa could play every week but I have to make the team work".

The only thing that you can say about a derby match is that you can throw the form book out the window, all that matters is what happens on the park that day.

"Barton might have said it tongue-in-cheek in his opinion, but you don't get tongue-in-cheek with Rangers and Celtic".

Here, Press Association Sport looks at the talking points before the keenly-awaited Old Firm encounter.

But Smith, 61, reckons they should be like him and relish it.

"But goals definitely change games and we've got to respect that, we've got to be better for today". I was only there a short period of time.

"That 3-2 game had the strangest team talk I'd heard". What I expect is a good game of football, I hope a high-quality game of football and I hope it is one that goes our way. He was very positive.

The players did not clash during the 90 minutes although they did exchange words after the second Celtic goal.

Rangers go into this game with the pressure off away from home and with less experience than their opponents which does make them risky but as both sets of players and Managers will know, the Old Firm Derby is like no other match in world football with the pace and atmosphere likely to be second to none.
