    The Champions proved why they're the dominant force in Scotland in last week's derby clash, and continue on their travels in the Premiership to Motherwell on Sunday.

    Rangers 2-3 Celtic

    The game against Scotland's shame last Sunday had even the most composed of Celtic fans on the edge of their seat. In a thrilling contest between 1st and 2nd place, the Hoops twice came from behind with goals from Tom Rogic, Moussa Dembele, and on-loan substitute Odsonne Edouard to win the match, despite being down to 10 men following Jozo Simunovic's dismissal.

    It was a game that had been built up by the media as a chance for The Rangers to put pressure on Celtic in the title race, and many inside the Govan side's camp had the same optimistic outlook. However, a determined and resilient show from the away team had them and the ecstatic supporters bouncing and looking as strong as ever to cope with the demands of a championship run-in.

    The win sent Celtic 8 points clear on 67, with their nearest rivals having played a game more - a comfortable lead to take into the back 9 of the league.

    Motherwell v Celtic

    The Steelmen face the men in green for the first time since a treble-header back in late November / early December, which included the Betfred Cup final win for the Hoops. The other results, a 1-1 draw at Fir Park, and a 5-1 trouncing at Celtic Park in the third meeting compounding Celtic's recent dominance in this fixture. Motherwell have won just one meeting between the sides in the last 4 years - a 2-1 win at Parkhead in December 2015.

    Stephen Robinson's side will be looking for revenge for that Cup final defeat, but they come into the game in up-and-down form (Last 5 Games - L/W/L/W/D). Currently 7th in the table, they sit 5 points behind Hearts with two games in hand as they hunt for a top six finish.
