Neil Lennon’s Celtic are the visitors to the Global Energy Stadium at Noon on Sunday as they look to keep up one of the tightest title races in recent history. The Staggies however will have other ideas, looking to return to winning ways after a narrow defeat in Paisley last time out.

A 4-0 demolition of Livi on their last outing still keeps the Champions top of the table on goal difference however Neil Lennon will be all to wary of the challenge their near neighbours Rangers possess in trying to dethrone the Parkhead team. Since our last meeting Celtic have swept aside Aberdeen, St Mirren, Motherwell & Livingston in the League, as well as dumping Lazio 2-1 in both Europa League matches and hammering Hibs 5-2 in the Semi-final of the Betfred Cup.

Captain of the Champions and a vital part of the Celtic Midfield. Brown has established himself as a key player in the Champions on a consistent basis and provides a tough exterior to opponents to try and break down the game. Brown is also a key leader on the park for Celtic and one of the Champions most important assets.
The midfielder gave the Staggies a torrid time earlier this season and the on-loan Southampton man has been a thorn in the side of most Premiership opponents this campaign. With good face and a keen eye for goal the midfielder can cause serious problems for any opponent in his way.
Edouard has been the mainstay of a Celtic attack that has shown very little signs of letting up over the past couple of seasons. Starting this campaign with 13 goals the striker will be a big threat. As well as having a good finish, the striker provides a physical presence at the top end of the park.
Our last meeting…
Celtic 6-0 Ross County
19th October 2019
The Staggies felt the full wrath of the Champions in their last meeting. Following a 2-0 loss to Livingston, Neil Lennon’s team took all of their frustrations out on Ross County with Celtic recording a 6-0 win at Celtic Park. With the score only 1-0 at the break, 4 goals in 10 minutes after the break killed the game.
