CELTIC travel to the highlands on Sunday to face Ross County. The Hoops are looking to bounce back from their Glasgow Derby loss last weekend, while the Staggies are looking to maintain their impressive home form.

This game is arguably Celtic’s biggest of the season; three points here take Celtic another step closer to winning the league title.

County has already achieved top-six football, which will have been an aim for the start of the season, but they will now have European ambitions. Of course, Hearts have already guaranteed themselves group stage football for next season.
