Celtic v Ross County: Is it on TV? How to watch, team news, referee and VAR officials

Celtic host Ross County on Saturday in the final round of Scottish Premiership fixtures before the winter break for the World Cup in Qatar.

The league leaders can, at the very least, maintain their seven-point lead over Rangers if they claim an eighth straight league victory since last dropping points in a 2-0 defeat to St Mirren in Paisley on September 18.

Ross County have endured a difficult season so far but Malky Mackay’s men will be bouyed by their 2-0 win over Hibs at Easter Road in midweek which lifted them up to 10th in the table after spending much of the opening half of the season languishing in the bottom two.
