Scotland: Down to the Final Day

The Old Firm will head to Thursday's final day of play tied atop the Scottish Premier League. Thanks to a 3-0 win over St. Mirren, Rangers drew level with Celtic at 86 points. Walter Smith went with an attacking lineup in the hopes of running up the score and cutting into Celtic's seven-goal lead in goal differential. Still up four after today's play, Celtic should be safe if the tiebreaker comes into play.

Both sides will be on the road Thursday; Celtic are away to Dundee and Rangers visit Aberdeen. Celtic have yet to surrender a goal to Dundee this year, winning two of their three meetings. Their most recent contest was a 0-0 draw at Celtic Park on March 12. Rangers won both home contests against Aberdeen, but their December 23 trip to Pittodrie Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw.
