What channel is the Celtic game on? Ross County match TV details, live stream, kick-off time

Celtic will hope to take another stride towards lifting the Scottish Premiership title this weekend when they travel to the Highlands to face Ross County.

The Parkhead side will need to bounce back from their Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers at Hampden last weekend as they aim to, at worst, maintain their six-point advantage in the title race ahead of the final Old Firm meeting of the season at Celtic Park the following weekend.

By the time Celtic kick off in Dingwall on Sunday, they will know how their title rivals have fared, with Rangers’ trip to Motherwell rearranged and brought forward to Saturday to give the Ibrox side an extra day to prepare for their Europa League semi-final first leg clash against RB Leipzig in Germany on Thursday.
