Neil Lennon claims he will again experience the "greatest derby in the world" when Celtic take on Rangers at Parkhead on Tuesday night.
Lennon, Celtic's interim boss, will see for the first time what an Old Firm encounter feels like from the technical area as he looks to strengthen his case for getting the post on a permanent basis with his seventh league win in succession.
Rangers are already crowned champions for the second successive season but Lennon is hoping to finish the campaign on a high.
"I love Old Firm games," the former Celtic captain said. "When you win, it is fantastic, when you lose it, the aftermath is horrific. That's the uniqueness of it.
"It's one of the best-selling things we've got in Scottish football and for me it is the greatest derby in the world, there is no doubt about it. There is something really special about it, the ingredients and the side-shows that come with it.
"I know there are people coming from far and wide to see it, even though there is not much riding on it in terms of the league.
"It feels the same as when I played. The pressures are just the same, the build-up is still the same and the headlines are still the same. The only difference is I'm not playing but there is an onus on me to get a winning team on the park.
"I want to win the game the way I wanted to win every other game, but does it make it extra special or sweeter because it's Rangers? Probably, yes."
Celtic captain Scott Brown praised Lennon for returning the fight to the Hoops' team, who came too late with their winning run.
"We all want Lenny to get the job," Brown said. "He has been brilliant in training, he has got back that fighting spirit and hunger to win matches.
"We are playing for the jersey again and we are becoming a harder team to beat. It's an Old Firm game and you always look forward to them and we just hope we come away with the three points.
"I think we have played well in games and been unlucky but they are top of the league and we are in second place. We have got to play for pride now."
Rangers midfielder Steven Davis, meanwhile, insists there is no such thing as a meaningless Old Firm derby.
"A lot of people have said there is nothing to play for in this game but there is always pride in Old Firm games and everybody wants to win them," he said.
"There is always pressure in Old Firm games, regardless of league position. The players, the fans, the coaches, they all want to win the games. Old Firm games are usually frantic and I can't see this one being any different."
