Celtic have made three changes to their starting XI against Ross County for the Premiership clash on Wednesday evening.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has decided to bring Jozo Simunovic, James Forrest and Ryan Christie back into the line-up.

This has seen 19-year-old attacker Patrick Roberts axed with Cristian Gamboa and the suspended Callum McGregor also dropping out of the eleven.

Celtic announced their side on their official Twitter account ahead of the clash at Celtic Park.

The Scottish giants currently sit 14 points ahead of closest competitors and fierce rivals Rangers and it looks like Rodgers will secure the sides sixth title in a row.

By contrast, Ross County are currently occupying sixth place in the table and have won just one of their last five fixtures.

The two sides are currently separated by a massive 32 points in the league table and Celtic will be looking to pick up a victory at home, maintaining their fantastic unbeaten record.

The Hoops will also have one eye on their next fixture, which will see them face Rangers on New Years Eve, who they will be keen to earn victory over for the third time this campaign.
