Celtic expected 4-2-3-1 v Ross County: Defender axed

By Amir Mir

Celtic could make one change to the side that beat Rangers on Sunday with Kolo Toure making a return to the starting XI.

Brendan Rodgers side take on Ross County in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night, after their Scottish League Cup semi-final triumph against Old Firm rivals Rangers at the weekend.

Defender Jozo Simunovic will most likely make way for the experienced centre-back, after the youngster replaced Toure against the Gers.

Toure was at fault for both of Borussia Monchengladbach’s goals during Celtic’s previous Champions League fixture, but could return as Rodgers rotates his centre-back pairing.

In attack striker Moussa Dembele will be hoping to continue his prolific form upfront, as he has six goals in eight appearances, which could see senior striker Leigh Griffiths miss out once again.

Winger Scott Sinclair could also start, with the former Aston Villa man scoring seven goals in his last eight league appearances for the Glasgow club.

That means attacking midfielders Tom Rogic and James Forrest could make up the rest of the attacking line.

In midfield skipper Scott Brown might keep his place, alongside Israel international Nir Bitton.

Full-backs Mikael Lustig and the ever-present Kieran Tierney, who has been a part of the Bhoys last two clean sheets could also start.
