THE ONE BEFORE THE ONE: A ROSS COUNTY-CELTIC PREVIEW

New, comment
Patrick Roberts celebrates putting Celtic ahead in our last visit to Dingwall

ROSS COUNTY V CELTIC (SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP: SUNDAY 16TH APRIL 2017; 12:30PM)

Celtic get the last league game before the semi-final out of the way...erm, I mean attempt to prolong our unbeaten run up at Dingwall on Sunday lunchtime.

Team Selection: As we wrote earlier this week, hopefully - injury permitting - Brendan Rodgers will pick the starting line-up that will play against Rangers next Sunday in this game, meaning starts for the likes of Boyata, Rogic and Dembele. Even if they only last an hour that should be enough game time for them. Leigh Griffiths will presumably be back on the bench now that he is fit again.

Previous Meetings: The first meeting between the clubs in October resulted in a 4-0 win for Celtic, but the game was far closer than the scoreline suggested, as after Roberts gave Celtic an early lead, we scored three times in the last ten minutes to put a flattering look on the final score.

The second game, just after Christmas at Celtic Park was far more comfortable as goals from Sviatchenko and Armstrong gave Celtic a 2-0 win.

Prediction: Even though the semi-final is looming on the horizon, Brendan Rodgers will want to keep the momentum in the league going, and Celtic should have enough about them to win a relatively tough match.
