Predicted 4-2-3-1 Celtic Lineup Vs Ross County: A Few Rotations Expected

It is the festive season all over the world although the mood at Celtic Park has been festive since Brendan Rodgers took charge at the club in the summer. Celtic have just two games before the winter break and they will look to sign off with two victories. Rodgers’ boys will be up against Ross County on Wednesday and then will travel across the city of Glasgow to play arch rivals Rangers on the New Year’s Eve.

Celtic’s current run is astonishing. They have never finished on the losing side in a domestic game since Rodgers took over in the summer. They have won 21 games and drawn one in the process and have already conquered the League Cup. Rodgers’ aim now will be to win an invincible domestic treble which would be some achievement. Ross County look no match for Celtic’s quality but complacency will be the last thing Rodgers would want from his boys.

With a clash against Rangers in three days’ time, Rodgers might opt to rest some of his key players against Ross County. So, we can expect a few changes in the Celtic starting XI against Ross County on Wednesday. Here is the Celtic predicted lineup against Ross County.

Defence

Craig Gordon will keep his place under the bar. He has done really well since taking his number one position back from Dorus de Vries and would be looking for another clean sheet. Cristian Gamboa is likely to continue at right-back after impressing in his last few displays. 

At the heart of the defence, we can expect to see the partnership of Erik Sviatchenko and Jozo Simunovic. Mikael Lustig took over Simunovic’s spot in recent games but we expect Simunovic to get back to the starting XI so that Lustig stays fresh to face Rangers. At left-back, we expect youngster Calvin Miller to start.

Midfield

Scott Brown will certainly keep his place in the middle of the park. He has been impressive throughout the season in midfield and will want to continue his good run of form. We expect in-form Stuart Armstrong to get rested so that he stays fresh for Rangers game. Youngster Liam Henderson will take his place. Patrick Roberts will keep his number ten place considering tom Rogic is still injured.

Attack

James Forrest returned from injury in the last game and is likely to start against Ross County on the right flank. Scott Sinclair will keep his place on the left. Moussa Dembele put an end to his six-game goalless streak with a fine strike against Hamilton and we expect him to lead the line against Ross County as Leigh Griffiths picked up a knock in the last game.
