Football: IN THE PAST.

MARTIN O'NEILL has won seven of his 14 Old Firm clashes with Alex McLeish, to Big Eck's four.

CELTIC became the first of the two sides to win six in a row last term.

THE Bhoys are on the longest goalscoring run of any side in Old Firm encounters. They've scored in the last 21 games - all the derbies O'Neill's been involved in.

HENRIK LARSSON hit 11 league goals against Rangers - a post-war record for a Celtic player.

RANGERS have won only one of the past 13 Old Firm league encounters.

THE Old Firm last fought out a goalless draw 29 games ago, on September 20, 1998 at Ibrox. In 360 meetings, there have only been 18.
