There is six days to go before Rangers and Celtic renew hostilities in the first Old Firm derby of the season.

Ibrox plays host next Saturday as Rangers look to bridge the five-point gap between them and Brendan Rodgers's side in the Scottish Premiership.

As expected, both sets of fans already had one eye on the meeting, even before the latest round of league fixtures finished.

Celtic hitman Leigh Griffiths isn't a hugely popular figure among the Gers' fanbase.

On two occasions last season, the Scotland striker unveiled a scarf at Ibrox after two victories, whether it was tying it to a goal post or laying it flat on the turf for all to see.

One Rangers fan tweeted Griffiths claiming that defender Bruno Alves is "gonna volley your thumb heed off your shoulders" in a post which drew a response from the Celtic striker.

Worringly for Pedro Caixinha's side, Griffiths only has two goals in five Premiership outings this season which, by his standards, is relatively poor.

The Scottish marksman is certainly due a goal and he will be that bit more determined to pick up a few at the home of his side's greatest enemy come Saturday.
