With so much at stake for both sides, discipline will be crucial in what is a notoriously fiery fixture.
. Hoops goalkeeper Artur Boruc, in particular, has found himself at the centre of controversy in several Old Firm clashes in the past but Strachan believes every player has a responsibility to behave on the day.
He said: "Leave Artur out of the way as I think we all have a responsibility to behave in a way that will not cause anyone to get upset.
"But, in saying that, it is funny that we have to pander to people who get easily upset at the slightest thing.
"We always try to tell players to stay focused."
Scott Brown has received 14 yellow cards so far this season and is another player who could be targeted by the Ibrox fans.
Strachan added: "It's new to Scott as we've been top of the Fair Play League in the past two years.
"Scott's not helped. I think he's taken us down the league!"
With tongue firmly in cheek, Strachan said: "Aiden McGeady has also become a monster and had a few bookings, but we need to stay focused on every game.
"You need to turn any anger into positive thinking."
