Celtic v Ross County (15:00)

Celtic's Kyogo Furuhashi is out for three to four weeks with a knee injury picked up on international duty with Japan. James McCarthy is in contention after recovering from a knock but James Forrest remains out.

New signings Giorgos Giakoumakis, Jota, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Liam Scales are all available.

Connor Randall is a doubt for Ross County with an ankle knock.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: "If we can get through this period with Kyogo missing, Georgios getting up and running and without guys like James Forrest and Mikey Johnston, who hasn't played at all, then it will mean we have a stronger conviction about what we are doing moving forward."

Ross County manager Malky Mackay: "There is a whole new group of players here. I am delighted with the way they are throwing themselves into it."
