Celtic will be looking to bounce back from their Champions League humiliation against Paris Saint-Germain when they host Ross County at Celtic Park on Saturday.
The Hoops returned to the summit of Scottish league last weekend as they won 4-1 at Hamilton while Aberdeen dropped points in a goalless draw at Hearts. The Scottish champions, who are ahead of the Dons on goal difference, will start the game as huge favourites against the Staggies, who are placed ninth in the league table with four points. Brendan Rodgers’ men were involved in Champions League action during midweek, and that means they might be at a slight disadvantage on Saturday.
Scott Sinclair was Hoops’ top scorer last season, and he has started the new season in the same vein. He has scored three league goals for his side including a brace in their last league game.
The Jaggies started the new season with a 2-1 win at Dundee, but since then, they have picked up only one point from their four games. That point came in their last game, as they registered a 1-1 home draw against Partick Thistle.
Last season, both sides played each other three times, and the Hoops won two of them while one ended in a draw. The Celts won the corresponding fixture 2-0 while the Jaggies managed a 2-2 draw in one of their two home games.
