Mark Warburton’s side only won promotion back to Scotland’s top flight in the new campaign, but fans will be keen to see their side battle their rivals back at the top of the Scottish pyramid.
The Ibrox side currently sit in fifth place in the Scottish Premiership table, four places behind Celtic and four points behind their fiercest rivals.
Rangers haven’t beaten Celtic since the 25th March 2012, but fans will be hoping their next clash brings them the much awaited victory over the Hoops.
