Ross County vs Celtic – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Celtic are targeting their fourth straight league victory over Ross County when the teams collide on Sunday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Both Teams to Score

Celtic took full advantage of an early sending off to beat Ross County 4-0 in March, though their task could be trickier at the Global Energy Stadium on Sunday. The Hoops failed to keep a clean sheet on either of their last two trips to play County (2-1, 0-1) and we’re tipping The Staggies to score again this weekend. Celtic have failed to score just once in their last 12 attempts in all competitions, however, and that in turn makes the BTTS market an interesting prospect this week.

Over 2.5 Goals

A minimum of three goals rattled the net in each of the last three encounters between Ross County and Celtic, and Sunday’s clash has all the makings of another thrilling contest. Five of the Staggies’ last nine tussles at the Global Energy Stadium have produced over 2.5 goals and we expect their Championship Round opener against the Bhoys to follow suit.

Georgios Giakoumakis to Score Anytime

Greek attacker Georgios Giakoumakis is Celtic’s leading scorer in the Premiership this season and the 27-year-old scored three of his nine goals for the campaign in a single sitting against Ross County last month. Having already shown that he has the measure of the Staggies’ defence, we recommend backing Giakoumakis to make his mark again in the anytime goalscorer market on Sunday.

Ross County vs Celtic Match Preview and Team News

Ross County

Goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer could miss out again for Ross County this weekend, though manager Malky Mackay has few injury concerns elsewhere. With just one defeat in their final six games, County finished the regular season strongly, though that solitary loss was inflicted in convincing style by Sunday’s opponents, Celtic (4-0).


Celtic have the luxury of a clean bill of health ahead of the weekend and manager Ange Postecoglou has decisions to make in a number of positions in his XI. With a six-point gap between them and rivals Rangers at the summit, Celtic are firmly in the driving seat in this year’s title race, though Gers did dump them out of the FA Cup in the semi-finals last weekend.
