Chris Sutton has been speaking on the Record Celtic podcast about the Bhoys’ fixture this weekend at Ross County.

Celtic will be looking to rid their minds of the cup semi-final defeat from last weekend which stopped Ange Postecoglou from picking up a possible silverware treble in his debut season as they travel to face Ross County in the first game after the SPFL split.

Will Celtic win this weekend?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

The Bhoys head into the fixture with a very comfortable-looking six-point gap to second place, however, that itself brings about pressure as they know that any drop in performance or points will leave the door wide open.

Sutton has acknowledged that this weekend’s trip to face Ross County will not be a pretty or easy one.

He said: “I suppose after Sunday‚Äôs, not the result, but because of the Rangers performance, then there will be Celtic fans who possibly thought that the league was over who will be worrying a little bit now. With the nature of the game up at Dingwall, Ross County have got a pretty good record.”

It’s not just after what happened last week that could be a hurdle for Celtic to overcome, but the pitch they will be playing on, with the former Hoops striker claiming it could stop Celtic and Postecoglou from implementing their designated style of play.

Sutton continued: “I think Sunday will be a difficult game, and I’ll tell you why, because the pitch at Dingwall when I saw it a month back, looked pretty horrific. Celtic like to play a quick passing game and it’s not going to suit that.”

Interesting first question, how many Celtic fans were inside Ibrox?

TIF Thoughts on Celtic’s game against Ross County…

It certainly isn’t going to be a walk in the park for Celtic this weekend as Ross County have lost just twice in their last 11 matches, which also included a 3-3 draw at home to Rangers – ultimately a result that hugely helped the Bhoys.

However, no matter who Celtic play between now and the end of the season, they will know that only a win will be good enough, as Rangers will be breathing down their necks at every possible opportunity as they look to try and pull off a dramatic title swing.
