THE Old Firm takes centre stage with Rangers hosting Celtic at Ibrox.

It will be fascinating to see how Brendan Rodgers's side set up for this afternoon's trip.

The Hoops are still the side to beat in the top flight and 7-10 with BetVictor to leave Ibrox with all three points. Gers are 16-5 with the draw 3-1. Credit where it's due to Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha who has unified the club and made giant strides since replacing Mark Warburton at the Ibrox helm.

Nevertheless, Rangers remain in the shadow of their Old Firm rivals and are 20-1 outsiders to be crowned champions and 5-4 to chase home Celtic at the top of the table.

I've a sneaking suspicion Rangers will earn at least a share of the spoils and think the hosts are a fair price at both 21-20 in the double chance market and 23-10 with BetVictor in the draw no bet stakes.

Should the hosts get a result against the Hoops they will need leading scorer Alfredo Morelos to continue his fine run of form in front of goal.

The Colombian striker has been a revelation since moving to Ibrox and has scored eight goals in his last seven games in all competitions.

He's been cut to 5-1 from 12s to be the league's leading marksman this season and is 13-2 to break the deadlock at Ibrox, 17-10 to net at any time.

The promotion picture in the Championship has been blown wide open with Dunfermline leapfrogging St Mirren after a 3-0 defeat of the Buddies and cut to 5-1 from 8s for the title.

Saints aim to bounce back when hosting QoS. The Buddies are clearly the second best side in the league but are best ignored based on last week's efforts so look at Queens at 9-5 not to lose.

Adam Eckersley and Gregor Buchanan are banned after being sent off at East End Park.
