A day to remember - looking back at Celtic's last post-split visit to Ibrox

With Celtic playing Rangers on Sunday with the league won, it is time to take a look back to Celtic’s last post-split visit to Ibrox, which was one of the most memorable Glasgow derbies in recent years for the Hoops.

Not only did Celtic head to Ibrox as champions, but they were also undefeated in the league with only five games remaining.

Despite the Hoops being champions, they were in a mood to put on a show, and Brendan Rodgers’ side certainly delivered.

The Hoops were two nil ahead in the first 20 minutes. Scott Sinclair opened the scoring from the penalty spot, before a Leigh Griffiths strike from 30 yards put the Celts further ahead.

There was no slacking in the second-half. Derby specialist Conor McGregor made it three nil, before Dedryck Boyata headed in the fourth.

Biggest ever win at Ibrox

The current Hoops side contains much of the same team which triumphed so spectacularly at Ibrox. However, it would be a bit of a shock if Celtic pulled off another emphatic victory. The current side isn’t scoring enough goals.

There is no doubt Neil Lennon would love to be in charge of a 5-1 win over Rangers. However, as long as the three points return with the Hoops to Celtic Park any win will do.
