Recommended bets

Ross County actually beat Celtic twice last season, including a 1-0 League Cup victory at Parkhead. Before that, the Hoops hadn’t lost a domestic cup tie for 1,687 days. Likewise, before that shock victory in November 2020, the Staggies had never been victories at Celtic Park.

Celtic to win and over 2.5 goals is 1/2.

Celtic to win and both teams to score NO is 5/6.

Georgios Giakoumakis has scored eight goals in 13 appearance in 2022. The Greek striker is 3/1 to break the deadlock, 8/13 to score anytime and 13/5 to score more than once.

With a season-defining April just around the corner, will Celtic ensure they go into the international break clear at the top of the table?

On Monday night, the Hoops comfortably booked their place in the Scottish Cup semi-finals, swatting aside Dundee United 3-0 at Tannadice.

Callum McGregor opened the scoring with a low-drive before two second half tap-ins from Giorgos Giakoumakis secured the win.

Ange Postecoglou’s side are now unbeaten in 30 domestic games and, with the League Cup already in the bag, the treble is on.

Back in the Premiership, the Bhoys’ ended their Tony Macaroni Arena hoodoo last time out, beating Livingston 3-1 at Almondvale.

Daizen Maeda, and own goal and James Forrest doing the damage as Celtic looked fantastic on the plastic.

So, with just eight league games to go, Celtic remain top, three points clear of Rangers.

The Celts’ next Premiership game is at Ibrox on 3 April before facing Rangers again a fortnight later at Hampden in the cup semi-finals.

There will be a fifth Old Firm of the season too back at Parkhead in early May, but there’s still so much to play for between now and 21 May.

Ross County meanwhile could also enjoy a memorable end to the season.

The Staggies were the pre-season favourites for relegation and this looked to be accurate when they failed to win any of their first ten matches.

However, right now, Malky Mackay’s men are on a three-game winning streak, beating St Mirren 1-0 last time out thanks to Joseph Hungbo’s penalty.

This means the Highlanders are currently sixth, only finishing higher than that once in their entire history, a fifth place finish nine years ago.

However, with all the teams from fourth to ninth separated by just a point, every points counts in the battle for a top six finish.

Will Celtic be too strong at Parkhead?

Ange Postecoglou isn’t likely to change too much after Monday’s easy win at Dundee United.

Georgios Giakoumakis will continue to lead the line; he only scored once before Christmas but has netted eight times since.

Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley was the midfield trio on Monday but Tom Rogic could return, probably in place of Hatate.

Starting wingers Jota and Liel Abada missed the cup tie with a knock and illness respectively but both could return to the attack for this one.

Kyōgo Furuhashi and David Turnbull are still not back after long-term injuries.

Given that they’ve won their last three, there’s no reason for Malky Mackay to make changes either.

Regan Charles-Cook is currently the Premiership’s top-scorer with 13 goals to his name.

The Grenada international, Watford loanee Joseph Hungbo and Jordan White are certainly capable of causing any defence problems.

Goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw has won two of his six meetings with Celtic but has also shipped 22 goals against them and that tally could increase.
