The old firm is one of the feistiest rivalries in the United Kingdom without doubt.
The Scottish league which is often criticised for the fact that only Celtic and Rangers win it year on year has not been won by another side since 1984.
What’s unique about the SPL is that there is only ten teams, which means Celtic and Rangers get to play against each other in the league alone four times a year.
There is also a religious tension between the clubs. The teams are split between between roman catholic and protestant followings and Northern Ireland politics usually either Loyalist or Republican.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon was attacked by a fan during a game last night. This adds to the death threats and the suspicious packages being found containing bullets.
Ian Holloway commented from his twitter account @IanHolloway_
“In response to your questions. I think what happened to Neil Lennon is a disgrace.
Football means a lot to people, but that’s way too far.It’s a totally different way of life up there. Neil Lennon is a brave chap to stay in that job.
I wish him all the best.”
