GAME PREVIEW


As they prepare for a game that could see them stretch their unbeaten record to 64 games, Celtic will also have one eye on their Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain.

The game against Ross County in Dingwall takes place four days before the match against PSG and Rodgers will be keen for his men to come through the contest unscathed with a place in the Europa League still up for grabs in Group B.

They will have plenty of confidence in their ability to secure a result, having thrashed the Staggies 4-0 at Celtic Park earlier in the season, but that came prior to the appointment of new boss Owen Coyle when County were on a dismal run of form.

Things have changed somewhat since then and Coyle has masterminded an upturn in fortunes, including a 3-2 victory over Motherwell prior to the international break. However, it will take a mighty effort if they are to upset Rodgers' all-conquering Hoops.
