The next Old Firm derby has been confirmed for New Year's Eve, and everybody's completely baffled

I know New Year’s Eve seems a long way away. We’re all trying to enjoy the end of the summer, and then there’s autumn to look forward to.

But we need to talk about the next Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic.

That’s right: the next time Rangers play Celtic in the Scottish Premiership will be on New Year’s Eve.

Nobody can understand how anyone thought it would be a good idea. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

Seriously, who makes these decisions?

Some wondered whether it was all part of a wider plan.

Wait … some footage from the future is reaching us.

Oh dear, oh dear.
