The Scottish Premiership title could effectively be decided today when Rangers take on Celtic at Ibrox. Both teams have formidable league records, but with Celtic currently three points ahead of their Old Firm rivals, a win for the Bhoys might pretty much end Rangers' defence of their crown. Three points for the Gers, however, would throw the title race wide open. Make sure you know how to watch a Rangers vs Celtic live stream wherever you are.

US soccer fans can watch a Rangers vs Celtic live stream on CBS Sports Network with FuboTV. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're a US fan stuck outside the States. UK fans can watch on Sky or Now.

League leaders Celtic haven't lost a league game since September – a run that spans 25 matches and includes a 3-0 win against Rangers at Celtic Park back in February. The starting line-up is the same as the one that beat Ross County last time out, with in-form striker Giorgos Gakoumakis up top, while Tom Rogic and Daizen Maeda have both recovered from injuries. The most notable absence is Kyogo Furuhashi who doesn't even make the bench. Ange Postecoglou's side are in particularly good goalscoring form of late, hitting the net nine times in the past three games, so the Hoops will be confident of taking a big step towards reclaiming the Premiership title.

Rangers have been on an impressive run in Europe this year, trouncing Borussia Dortmund on their way to the quarter-finals of the Europa League, but nothing means as much as the Old Firm derby. The Gers have only lost twice in the league all season but they're not as free-scoring as their city rivals, so Gio van Bronckhorst has made four changes to his team: Leon Balogun, Ryan Jack, Joe Aribo and Kemar Roofe come in for Fil Helander, James Sands, Scott Arfield and Alfredo Morelos. Former Arsenal man Aaron Ramsey starts in midfield. Nothing but a home win will do today. 

The match kicks off at 12pm BST today, Sunday 3rd April. Follow our guide on how to watch a Rangers vs Celtic live stream online, on TV and on your smartphone, from wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Rangers vs Celtic live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Rangers vs Celtic live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
