Ross County surprised many by grabbing a top six spot in the SPFL this season. However, if you look at their home form, it’s easy to see how they’ve managed to hit the heights this season.

The bhoys are tasked with bouncing back from their Scottish Cup derby defeat against the Dingwall side, but it’s not going to be easy.

The comforting thing is Celtic were the last team to escape with all three points in the Highlands. But since then, County haven’t been defeated on their home turf.

When Celtic did win against Sunday’s opposition, it was a 97th minute winner scored by Anthony Ralston. The team that night had no recognised striker, Liel Abada running the line because we had no fit striker.

We’re in a much better place in terms of squad depth, but any Celtic fan who believes we need to turn up on Sunday is in for a shock.

It’s going to be a battle, and the Hoops must show their title credentials by finding a way past Malay McKay’s side.

Kyogo could make his first start since December, or we could see a quick return to action for Giakoumakis.

Sunday can’t come quick enough.
