Manager Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team vs Ross County at home in the Scottish Premiership today, per the official club website.

The full match squad is as follows:

Starting XI – Hart, Juranovic, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor, McGregor, Turnbull, Rogic, Abada, Jota, Ajeti.

Substitutes – Bain, Soro, McCarthy, Urhoghide, Shaw, Montgomery, Welsh.

There’s been drama off the pitch at Celtic this weekend, but ultimately we’ll all be happy if Postecoglou and his Bhoys manage to pick up three points today.

The manager will be fully focused on events he can control and drumming into his players that it’s their performances that matter this afternoon, not whatever is going on in the boardroom.
