Ross County had a difficult start to the 2021-22 campaign, with their poor form seeing them sit in the relegation zone; however, they have been more impressive when it comes towards the winter period.
The Staggies have now gone four games without a defeat, which is their best run of the season as they have defeated Hibernian and Dundee while drawing against Dundee United and St Mirren.
Malky Mackay’s men have kept clean sheets in half of those games, with their defensive qualities being needed in midweek when they compete against the Hoops, who have scored 37 times already this season.
However, Ross County also showcased their ability to find the back of the net at the weekend when they scored three times in order to secure a crucial victory against the Dark Blues.
Despite the fact that they fell behind twice Mackay’s squad fought back with finishes from Dominic Samuel and Regan Charles-Cook and an own goal helping to gain the win that they will now want to follow up on.
The Staggies will have to work hard in order to get considering the fact Celtic have not lost in the league since September as they push Rangers in the title race.
The Hoops are currently four points behind their Old Firm rivals and they will be keen not to slip up because of that, especially against a team in the relegation zone

Ange Postecoglou’s men were able to defeat Motherwell at the weekend with Tom Rogic scoring the only goal of the game at the end of the first half.
This marked their third match in a row keeping a clean sheet as well, with Joe Hart’s experience proving vital for the Hoops, while their attacking qualities have also been clear to see.
That was on full display the last time they faced the Staggies as Celtic won the match 3-0 with Cameron Carter-Vickers getting on the scoresheet as well a brace from Albian Ateji.
