Celtic face Ross County tomorrow with Ange Postecoglou’s side looking to record three points and recover from the extra-time defeat at Hampden. The loss, Celtic’s first in thirty domestic games, has resulted in hysteria from some pundits suggesting that an imminent collapse would follow the Scottish Cup exit. The manager batted this claim back, insisting that his team are focused on the target that is just five games away.
Celtic are bolstered by the return of Giorgos Giakoumakis to the squad. The Greek striker was a big loss in the defeat against Rangers but he will be back to face Malky Mackay’s side. Giakoumakis will be competing with Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi for a starting role.
Josip Juranovic is missing this weekend and will likely miss the game against Rangers next Sunday. The Croatian Internationalist will be replaced by Tony Ralston in the team, who scored the late winner at Dingwall last time. Greg Taylor and Cameron Carter-Vickers are fit despite concerns that they had suffered fatigue.
Kick Off Time
The game in Dingwall kicks off at 14:30 (Celtic Park Time).
Where to Watch
The game will be shown on Sky Sports Football with coverage commencing at 2pm. Celtic TV subscribers outside of Britain and Ireland will be able to watch the game on the club’s online stream.
It will be a huge game for Postecoglou’s men as they look to move one step closer to regaining the Premiership title.
