No Irish TV channels will be showing the clash. You look at the other games worldwide, some of the South American derbies are absolutely phenomenal.

Rodgers, who managed Swansea several times in their South Wales derby with Cardiff, and Liverpool in the Merseyside derby against Everton, admits the Old Firm has more intensity.

And in truth, for 45 minutes the Gers looked as if they were going to at least secure a point.

Rangers will be without their captain Lee Wallace after the full-back picked up a groin injury.

Extra police will be drafted into the local area to quell the threat of disorder when Rangers face Celtic tomorrow.

Neither side could find a breakthrough in the first half but Tom Rogic smashed in a powerful shot to give Celtic the lead before Leigh Griffiths double the visitor's lead with a smart finish from a Patrick Roberts pass.

Kilmarnock are struggling at the bottom of the Premiership and are yet to register their first victory.

"The team that wins is the team that commits less mistakes", Caixinha said.

"Credit to the players that they now know that".

Admittedly, Thistle's Chris Erskine was dismissed for an over-the-top challenge midway through the second half, a red card that boss Alan Archibald had no quibbles with come full-time. Alfredo Morelos might have had a penalty, he probably should have scored with a header straight at Craig Gordon just before the hour mark, but there was always a sense that Celtic had another gear to move into, enough know-how to emerge unscathed, and so it transpired. "In fairness to Pedro, for whatever reason he's not liked what he's seen in the group", Rodgers said.
