Tomorrow’s visit of Ross County is one of the two oasis of home games amid our eight away game deluge. Celtic comfortably swept County aside when the teams met in Dingwall last month. That 1-4 win was followed by a dip in from by Celtic, who struggled to overcome Hamilton next time out, and throughout December.
County have had two draws and three defeats in their last five outings, including a Scottish Cup exit at Ayr. If we can get the heavy lifting done early, tomorrow should be an opportunity for Neil Lennon to rest and experiment.
It will be interesting to hear if Sky Sports react to Celtic’s letter of yesterday regarding the comments of Kris Boyd about Leigh Griffiths. Football is an entertainment business, the question for Sky is, do they regard provocative views about mental health as entertainment. I don’t think we will be reassured by their response.
