SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP: ROSS COUNTY V CELTIC; SATURDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 12:30PM

The blog is back! And so are Celtic, who return after the international break with a trip to Dingwall to face Owen Coyle’s Ross County.

Team Selection: With a big week ahead - PSG and the Betfred Cup Final - Brendan Rodgers might be tempted to make some changes from what would be considered his best team.

But I would imagine he’ll want to keep the record-breaking run going, which means picking his best team, with the exception of Tom Rogic, who has only just returned from international duty.

So that means starts for Brown, Boyata, Sinclair, Dembele and the rest of the usual suspects.

With Patrick Roberts and Jozo Simunovic back in training this week, some game time for those two - even from the bench would be bonus.

Previous Meetings: Celtic defeated Ross County - then managed by Jim McIntyre - 4-0 at Celtic Park in September, with goals from Tom Rogic, Moussa Dembele and a brace by James Forrest.

Prediction: I would imagine this will be quite a tough test at first against Owen Coyle’s Ross County, but Celtic should have enough quality to eventually wear them down and pick up the win.
