Gordon Strachan and Craig Bellamy tell The Debate just what makes the Old Firm such a unique clash.
Celtic host Rangers at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon in what is the arch rivals' second league meeting of the season, with the Scottish Premiership champions having won the first encounter 2-0 at Ibrox in September.
Strachan, who managed Celtic between 2005 and 2009, says there is no other match in world football quite like it.
"It is not a normal game, it is madness, fun, everything," said Strachan. "It is a great thing to be involved in."
Meanwhile, Bellamy - who played for Celtic on loan in 2005 - describes being totally overwhelmed by his first Old Firm experience.
"Going up there was another level, it really was. The weeks building up to it, the papers, radio phone ins," he said.
"And when you are involved in and then going out into the stadium, the colours everywhere, it actually just felt too much for me."
