Celtic vs. Rangers Old Firm Derby to be televised on FOX Sports 1

celtic-rangers

Next Saturday, FOX Sports will televise the first Scottish Premiership Old Firm derby in four years between Celtic and Rangers.

The match, which will be shown live on FOX Sports 1, Sling Blue and FOX Soccer 2GO, is scheduled to kick off Saturday, September 10 at 7am ET, live from Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland.

Celtic currently leads the Scottish Premiership table, one point ahead of Rangers who are in second place after recently being promoted back to the Scottish top-flight.

The last time the two clubs played each other in the Scottish Premiership was 2012 when Celtic won the league with a 20 point lead over Rangers. That season, Rangers were liquidated, and the Ibrox club was forced to play in the fourth tier of Scottish football from the 2012-13 season. Since then, the club relaunched and made its way back to the top flight through a series of promotions.

Saturday’s Old Firm Derby will be the first Scottish Premiership game of the season that has been featured on FS1. So far this season, FOX Sports has broadcast 2-3 Premiership games on FOX Soccer Plus and FOX Soccer 2GO each weekend.

While the Old Firm Derby promises to be an intense match, it’s a shame that it’s scheduled at almost the same time as the Manchester derby, which kicks off just 30 minutes after the match at Celtic Park.

    Rangers were not relegated. There is no basis to the ‘holding company’ myth… Under Scottish law they club are responsible and were liquidated. Rangers are no more. Fact.

    Not sure when you wrote this but The Rangers are 7 points behind Celtic, not 1. Your article implies there’s little gap between both. Fantasy!

    As a supporter of one of the smaller clubs from the lower leagues we were glad The Rnagers were promoted. The trail of destruction left by their supporters cost us dearly. A blight on Scottish football. Care to do some homework on the current financial state at The Rangers? Ground safety… Water bills… Unpaid tax bills for last 6 Months.

    With the early start time on west coast and the Fox crew based on the west coast, should we expect a even lower quality of soccer coverage even by Fox’s standards? My guess is they won’t brother to show up and we can expect a voice over announcer. If we are lucky they met to a recap during half time of later Bundesliga games. Which would be interesting since they never do and SPL recaps in the past and they will be coverage a different game in a different league which is a different country. Lucky for FOX that they will be soccer games midweek due to the international break so that will be the only promotion for Celtic vs. Rangers. Only promos for a soccer game during a other soccer game and not on something like a baseball or college football game to get the word out. we should not be surprised when the tv numbers come out and they are lower the then the Manchester Derby. Would like to hear anyone else’s thoughts if they agree or disagree.
