Celtic Rangers Scottish Premiership

Celtic v Rangers - 27th August 2000

Tune in to the SPFL Youtube on Saturday at Midday for another live match!

You've been voting all week and this weekend's game is an SPL Classic from the year 2000!

Celtic went into the game with four wins out of four in the SPL and having thrashed Jeunesse Esch of Luxembourg 7-0 in the UEFA Cup on the Thursday night.

Rangers had made a perfect start to the defence of their Premier League title and booked a place in the group stage of the Champions League with a 3-0 victory (6-0 on aggregate) over Danish side Herfolge in midweek.

Dick Advocaat's men had won the most recent meeting 4-0 at Ibrox in March and Celtic were without a victory in seven attempts against their city rivals since winning 5-1 in November 1998.

This was Martin O'Neill's first Old Firm match as Celtic manager and it was to be quite a 90 minutes in the East End of Glasgow that August afternoon.
