The Scottish media have tried to pile the pressure onto Celtic for the past week.

The trip to Dingwall has been long-awaited, with fans desperate to get back to winning ways after their defeat last week.

Celtic have won twelve of their last fourteen meetings with Ross County, a stat that proves that County doesn’t typically give Celtic too much to worry about. Last season, Celtic were defeated twice by the Dingwall club, one of these defeats led to the protest for Lennon’s sacking.

Of course, the Staggies will be no walkover, but Celtic should have the quality to negotiate past the highland side as they have three times already this season.

“I eat it up for breakfast, mate,” said the Hoops boss, happy to confirm the suspicion.

“No, seriously I enjoy it. It’s why I love what I do.

“If you know what the outcome’s going to be, I wouldn’t enjoy what I do.

“The adrenaline of that fine line between success and failure is what excites me.

“We could have won the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers last week. It could have gone our way.

“But that’s the beauty of the sport. I don’t see it as pressure. This is the bit I love.

“That probably tells you about me as a person. But I love going into a game with it all on the line.

“Potentially, you could end up with something fantastic, or come out of it bitterly disappointed.

“I enjoy that.”

Celtic need to put the game to bed early. With The Rangers winning on Saturday, the Hoops must maintain their six-point advantage heading into the derby next Sunday, where a win would all but seal the title for Celtic.
