The last time they met in the Scottish Premier League, Celtic won 2-1 but only after many of their players were involved in different incidents.

Six weeks ago Celtic defeated Rangers 2-1 in the Scottish Premier League.

But during the match, there were a lot of incidents between players from both teams.

Which is why Rangers defender Connor Goldson hopes his teammates can keep their cool against the Scottish champions.

“We made the mistakes on that day as a team and as a club that we have got to learn from,” Goldson was quoted by The Scotzine.

“Truthfully, and people won’t like me saying this, he (Brown) has been very clever.”

“People will say why don’t we do it? But, realistically, it’s not right to do it,” he added.

“At the same time, he benefited his team by doing it and, as I said, we were inexperienced.”

“We shouldn’t get sucked in by that and, on that day, we did. It’s just something we have to learn from and not let it happen again because it hurt us,” he continued.

“I don’t know if you can call it frustrating because it’s our own fault.”

Rangers still have two more matches to play in the Scottish Premier League Second Phase: they will host Celtic tomorrow in the afternoon, and then visit Kilmarnock to end their 2018-2019 season.
