Steven Gerrard’s unbeaten Gers travel across the city to take on Brendan Rodgers’ double treble champions in a mouthwatering clash at Parkhead on Sunday lunchtime, with fireworks almost guaranteed.
Given the hostile nature of the fixture, a cool and steady hand will be required to officiate, and the powers that be in Scottish football seem to think Collum fits the bill, despite having a controversial match last weekend, where he seemed to deny Aberdeen a certain penalty against Hibs.
The whistler has been at the centre of controversy several times previously in his career and there’s plenty of fans who are less than convinced by his appointment:
All bets are off! Anything could happen wi Collum 😂😂😂 https://t.co/4QdOvKgznH

Willie Collum is Sunday's referee. Paddy Power has already paid out on Celtic getting a penalty and Rangers having a man sent off 🙄 pic.twitter.com/caDGgE8ksa
