They say the best things come to those who wait.
This clash should have taken place a month ago but the winter break was brought forwarded and forced a Scottish Premiership fixture reshuffle.
Ange Postecoglou was still finding his feet when he watched his side go down to a patched-up Ibrox side that had been decimated by Covid in the first derby of the season back in August.
The Aussie, though, has turned things around since those turbulent early days in charge and victory would take the Hoops above the champions and into top spot.
He will have to do it without key men Kyogo and Tom Rogic with the pair on international duty.
Gio van Bronckhorst is also missing some key men with Alfredo Morelo away with Colombia and new superstar signing Aaron Ramsey isn’t ready to make his debut.
But it’s not about who isn’t available – there is plenty talent to chose from on both sides and you can follow all the build up, action and reaction right here in our LIVE blog
