Or might it even be the last Old Firm game EVER?
Despite all the doom and gloom surrounding Rangers' future, with speculation about demotion to Division Three or, worst case scenario, the Ibrox club foundering altogether under the welter-weight of years of financial mismanagement, the clever money is on it being business as usual next season.
However, against the backdrop of takeovers, fines, bans and uncertainty, this weekend's meeting between Celtic and Rangers at Parkhead has risen well above the level of a meaningless end-of-season affair.
The Hoops already have the title in the bag. Rangers know that, even if they finish second in the SPL, the rule book stands between them and European qualification.
But there are still huge bragging rights at stake.
Celtic don't want to give any more ammunition to the snipers who claim this is a championship devalued by the fact Rangers have been deducted 10 points, and certainly don't want it to be a campaign in which they lose three of the four Old Firm games.
Rangers know this is the final chance to salvage some semblance of pride for a support which has suffered since their team squandered a 15-point lead in the title race, then fell into administration.
All of which adds huge incentive to Sunday's game, and makes it even more difficult to call in the eyes of a man who has been a pivotal player for Celtic in these matches for five seasons.
Georgios Samaras has become something of an Old Firm specialist. The 27-year-old has played in 22 of these games, finishing on the winning side in nine, and on the losing team on the same number of occasions.
So you have to take notice when he says it is simply impossible to say who holds the advantage going into this weekend's encounter.
"There are no favourites," he said. "There are so small the details and so tight the games that you can't put your money on one team.
"It is 50-50. It's the Old Firm, and you just go and try to be ready, physically and mentally to stay strong and go on to win the game. That's the reason you need to stay focused and go on and prove you are a good team and go and win the game."
Samaras can understand why the occasion will attract a world-wide audience, increased by the current predicament Rangers find themselves in.
But, even if both clubs were riding high, or enduring a relatively benign time, the Greek striker knows all eyes would be on them.
He said: "These are special games. Always when you are playing against Rangers, it is a totally different story from other games.
"The atmosphere, the way you prepare, and the feeling you have in the warm-up, you enjoy these games the most because they are special."
As a man who moved from Greece as a youngster to further his career in Holland before making a £6million move to Manchester City, Samaras thought he had a good grounding in the game.
But he admitted he quickly discovered this local derby stands out from all others.
And as former club City prepare to play Manchester United in a much-anticipated Premier League shoot out the day after the Old Firm game, Sami recalled his first impressions of Glasgow's unique offering.
"I came from Manchester and there is a big local game there as well," he said. "I was a bit surprised because I did not think it would be bigger than United v City – but it is."
He added: "After the first game I played in, I started to research the internet and found out the history. I realised this was more than a football game.
"For us, the footballers, it is a game. But, for the supporters and the people around the club, it is more, and we need to respect the whole situation."
While Samaras has shown some of his best form for Celtic in games against Rangers, on other occasions – including the last meeting at Ibrox, which Celtic lost 3-2 – he has also reinforced his reputation as an enigmatic character.
Nevertheless, he remains a man Neil Lennon turns to for these games because the manager believes Sami's style poses Rangers problems which they struggle to solve.
The Hoops boss left him out of last weekend's game at Motherwell to allow Sami to recharge his batteries in anticipation of another big performance from him on Sunday.
Samaras knows what is required of him, and everyone else selected by Lennon.
He told Celtic TV: "The only thing you can do is stay focused. You don't have one second to try to see what is going on with the fans.
"You listen, but you need to listen more to your team- mates on the pitch than to the supporters. Sometimes you can hear them, sometimes you can't. We do our best."
Which is all anyone can ask, especially as the threat, albeit slight, remains that it could be a long time before such an occasion can be savoured again.
