Celtic Football Club v Ross County

Currently at the top of the Scottish Premier League, Celtic take on Ross County on 22 January at home. Ross County is currently third from the bottom of the Scottish Premier League table, and just one point ahead of St Mirren and 6 above Dundee.

So, will this be the one sided match that most people are predicting? Certainly the bookmakers believe that it will and currently odds on a Celtic victory are around 2/11, though for the diehard Ross County fans who enjoy betting on their club, they can find odds as high as 12/1, and a draw is priced at around 7/1.

Neil Lennon has said that the goalkeeper Fraser Forster is extremely crucial to the success of the club. The 24-year-old goalkeeper is regarded as one of the young and extremely good goalkeepers in the country. To be able to the present Celtic at this stage of his career shows a lot about the player according to the Celtic manager Neil Lennon.

DELIGHTED WITH WIN

The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he is extremely happy following the 1-0 win over Aberdeen in the opening match of the season, according to the Anfield Roar fanzine.

LENNON KEEPS QUIET

The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he does not want to make any comments about the possibility of bringing Rangers back to the Scottish Premier league. The Celtic manager also criticised the way his strikers performed in the first pre-season match of the campaign.

He has also revealed that he is hoping that the players understand what he is looking for in the third pre-season match. Celtic recently failed to win the second consecutive match in pre-season tour of Germany. The 1-0 defeat by Stuttgart Kickers has left Celtic with no wins in the first two matches of the pre-season.

LENNON WANTS QUALIFICATION

Neil Lennon has said that it is extremely essential that Celtic qualify for the Champions League next season in order to guarantee them around £ 30 million in revenue.

THOMSON BACKS CELTIC

Celtic's Alan Thompson has said that he is extremely certain that the final old firm derby of the season will not be different from the ones that have been played over the years.

This is certainly a unique situation whereby this could be the last old firm derby ever. Rangers are currently in a difficult financial situation after having been put into administration following their failure to pay the taxes. It is thought that Rangers are in debt burden that could be as high as £ 50 million. No buyer has been found for the club as of yet, which has put their future in huge doubt.

SENT TO THE STANDS

Celtic recently won the title and there has been a lot of praise for Neil Lennon and the amazing work he has been doing at Celtic Park.

However, this might come as a sour grape for the manager, who saw his side suffer a shock defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock in the final of the Scottish League Cup.

CELTIC MAKE THE SEMIS

Celtic managed to enter into the semifinals of the Scottish cup after a 4-0 win over Dundee United, but Neil Lennon continued to not face the media after reportedly being extremely unhappy with the coverage of his club.

Celtic managed to record this thumping victory over 10 man Dundee United, which helped them enter into the semifinals.

IZAGUIRRE AIMING FOR STRONG RETURN

Celtic star Emilio Izaguirre has said that he expects to come back strong over the next few months in order to capture the Player of the Year award he won last season.

The 25-year-old full-back suffered a serious injury recently and has been out of the first team action for quite a while now.

However, speaking on his return from first-team action, the defender has said that he expects the title to be his once he returns to form. In the absence of Emilio Izaguirre, players like Gary Hooper and Scott Brown have become the favourites of the crowd.
