Celtic vs Rangers
Celtic Park, Wednesday 13 April 2016, Kick-Off: 7:30pm
Please note, this game is an all-ticket match and by invitation only.
Games between Celtic and Rangers are always special, but Wednesday’s Old Firm will see history made. For the first time ever, Celtic Women will play a match at Celtic Park.
Both teams go into the first Old Firm derby of the season today, level on points after two league games. This is a game rearranged from the 3rd April.
Celtic began their league campaign with an impressive 4-0 win over Forfar Farmington which saw them top the table. But when they travelled to Excelsior Stadium to take on Glasgow City, they fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat to City. Despite losing, they put in the type of performance that has people talking about them being a dark horse for the title. It is possible that new signing Christie Murray may make her debut.
On the other hand, Rangers began their season with a defeat. They travelled to Hibernian, and after a poor first half, they were trailing the Edinburgh club 3-0. But in the second half, they put in a much-improved performance and pulled a late goal back through Chantelle Brown. Their second game was at home, and they put in an impressive performance to beat Stirling University 4-1.
Last season, Celtic won two of the games between the sides – although Rangers won the first game.
A Celtic win will see them go up to first, something that Rangers can do also although they would have to win by at least two goals.
