Heading into today’s game at Dingwall, the main talking point was who would lead the line, Giakouamkis or Kyogo?
Some felt that Giakoumakis’ physical presence could benefit the side, playing a County team who aren’t afraid to get stuck in. While others feel that Kyogo’s sharp movement could create some space for the Hoops as they look to break down the highland side’s defence.
Here is the team Ange Postecoglou has decided to start with;

It’s a first start for Jenz, and kyogo leading the line.
It’ll be a tough game for Celtic; they only need to look back to last season to be reminded of how tough a place Dingwall is to visit.
They’ll want to start a winning streak and get some momentum behind them in their title defence season.
After their trip to Ross County, a trip to Kilmarnock awaits before returning to Paradise to face Hearts. The Bhoys will then travel to Tannadice then prepare to host the first derby of the season. It’s a tough start to the season for Postecoglou’s side.
