Team’s Up – Malky Mackay names Ross County team for Celtic clash

Malky Mackay has named his Ross County team for this afternoon’s Cinch Premiership clash against Celtic. The Scottish Champions arrive looking to increase their lead at the top of the league to eight points but they’ll have to beat the stubborn Staggies.

Ross County: Laidlaw, Brown, Leak, Baldwin, Harmon, Randall, Loturi, Dhanda, Allardice, Murray, White.

Subs: Munro, Purrington, Turner, Sheaf, High, Samuel, Brophy, Smith, Nightingale.

County picked up a point away to Hibs during the week and might’ve been unlucky not to have collected all three. Mackay has continued to exceed expectations up in Dingwall and always sets his teams up well.

Meanwhile, Rodgers named his Celtic team with six changes from the team that beat St Mirren during the week.

Celtic: Hart, Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor, McGregor, Bernardo, Turnbull, Yang, Maeda, Oh.

Subs: Bain, Holm, Iwata, Johnston, Phillips, Palma, Kyogo, O’Riley, Forrest.

The manager has to contend with a packed fixture schedule with the trip to Madrid to face Atletico in the UEFA Champions League group stages.

The game kicks off at 12:30pm (Celtic Park time) and coverage is beginning on Sky Sports football.
