Celtic would return to action on Saturday afternoon following a crazy transfer deadline day prior to the international break. They are set to host Ross County at Paradise and must be determined to bounce back from their Old Firm derby defeat against bitter rivals Rangers.

The Staggies, on the other hand, are yet to win a league game so far this term. They would once again battle for survival after escaping relegation last season, whereas the Hoops, having scored six goals each against Dundee and St. Mirren, would aim for another high-scoring affair en route to reclaiming the Premiership crown.

Celtic seem to have found stability between the sticks since Joe Hart replaced Scott Bain and Vasilis Barkas. The veteran Englishman must keep hold of his place as he himself is battling to revive the lost charm after a few difficult years in England with West Ham United, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur.

Liam Scales and Cameron Carter-Vickers are welcome inclusions in the heart of the backline. The latter, however, endured an ankle injury last month and the gaffer Ange Postecoglou might have to rely on Carl Starfelt once again alongside Stephen Welsh. Scales needs time to settle in after completing a high-profile move from Shamrock Rovers, also Christopher Jullien is yet to return to action even though he has been included in the Hoops’ Europa League squad. Anthony Ralston is likely to retain his right-back role to build upon an impressive run, but we expect Greg Taylor to feature from the left having recovered from a brief injury spell.


Postecoglou has been extremely aggressive with his strategy and is likely to field a dynamic midfield to keep the opponents on their toes. Skipper Callum McGregor would operate from the base allowing Tom Rogic and David Turnbull to have free roles in the middle of the park. James McCarthy and Ismaila Soro might get introduced at some stage as substitutes.


High-flying Kyogo Furuhashi remains a doubt after limping off the pitch against China. The Japanese sensation would be assessed once he rejoins the camp and the manager might hand Georgios Giakoumakis a start straightaway if Furuhashi fails to recover. James Forrest missed the derby with a knock but should operate from the left if declared fit for the Staggies clash. Liel Abada has been exquisite down the right-hand flank and must continue his excellence in terms of finding the net or setting the goals up for fellow attackers.
