The clash remains the most exciting north of the border and is watched eagerly by many across the globe.
But former Celtic ace Bellamy fears that neither team has any chance of progressing further unless they move south to join English football.
He believes Rangers and Celtic are both good enough for the Premier League, even if they have to start playing in lower divisions.
And Bellamy even reckons that remaining in Scotland will be damaging for the duo in the long run.
He wrote in his Paddy Power blog: “Even if Celtic and Rangers were only offered a place in the lower leagues, they should get in there.

“The Old Firm clubs would be a huge asset to the Premier league and it would be a game changers for Celtic and Rangers, too.
“I’d feel for Scottish football if it happened, but when I look at the two Glasgow giants the only real future they have is to get themselves down south.
“I’m not sure it will ever come to pass, but I hang on it happening. I’m not a religious man, far from it, but I pray for that moment to come.
“It would be brilliant for both the Premier League and those two clubs. We think we’ve got a great Premier League now, but it would be even better if we had Celtic and Rangers in it.”
