| 31.01.2015

A first Old Firm derby in almost three years has sent punters into overdrive according to Ladbrokes and looking at the firm’s offers on the Scottish League Cup semi-final, the bookmakers look the only place to bet on the colossal clash.

Following on from what could be a momentous morning for Scots with Andy Murray contesting the Australian Open final hours before, Ladbrokes are going the whole hog for the 13:30pm kick-off from Hampden Park.

Firstly, the firm are going industry top price on all correct score and first goalscorer bets for Celtic against Rangers over the 90 minutes.

First goalscorer: John Guidetti @ 10/3

It really does make sense to go with the Hoops’ top scorer in the form of on-loan Manchester City striker Guidetti, despite his seven-game barren spell in front of goal.

The Swede has already scored four in this competition for Ronny Deila’s side, inclusing a hat-trick in the 6-0 rout of Partick.

Correct Score: Celtic 2-1 Rangers @ 8/1

Despite the unusual scenario of Celtic being overwhelming favourites for the tie thanks to the divisional gap, the stakes demand that this will be a fiercely contested match.

Four of the last six League Cup Old Firm clashes have finished 2-1 to the Gers, with the other two seeing Celtic prevail 2-0 winners, so in all instances exactly two goals have been scored by the victorious team.

Old Firm Price Boots:

Celtic to win and BTTS was 7/4 now 5/2
Rangers to win and BTTS was 12/1 now 16/1 (both apply to 90 mins betting)
