With just three games left in the season, the Scottish Premiership title race is closer than it has been in many years. Celtic have the advantage, as they sit three points ahead of the Rangers and there is the upcoming Glasgow Derby at Parkhead as well. Brendan Rodgers' side also have a better goal difference as things stand.

Form and records often go out the window when it comes to Glasgow Derbies though. Thus, Celtic will need to make sure that they bring their A-game to the table next weekend

Both teams won their games leading up to the Glasgow Derby. Celtic faced a Hearts team they have had troubles against in the past and managed to get a rather comfortable 3-0 win, thanks to a brace from Kyogo and one from Matt O'Riley.

On the other hand, the Rangers appeared to be having issues against Kilmarnock and went a goal down. But the opposition had a player sent off and Philippe Clement's team ultimately managed to score four unanswered goals to win 4-1.

One of the goalscorers for the Ibrox club on the day was Ben Davies. As reported by the Glasgow Times, when asked about how the Rangers players were feeling ahead of their match against Celtic, he said:

"Feeling good. We have scored four good goals today, we have created lots of chances today.

“Obviously it is going to be a tough task to go and win but we are going to try and win there and see where we go from there."

Davies is someone Celtic had come very close to signing on a pre-contract before he made an unexpected move to Liverpool. That did not work out and while he eventually did move to Glasgow, it was to join the Rangers.

Davies' spell at Ibrox has not been anything special either. However, with Connor Goldson out injured for the rest of the season, there is a possibility that we could see him make an appearance at Parkhead in the Glasgow Derby next weekend.
