The Glasgow derby commonly referred to as the Old Firm derby is one of the oldest and most complex rivalries in world football. When these two meet in the Old Firm, it’s not just about football. It’s about politics, religion, and differing social attitudes. To call this one a mere disagreement between two religious divides would be to massively under-sell the British’ biggest derby: Old Firm between Celtic v Rangers is something else.
