What channel is Ross County v Rangers on? Kick-off time, TV details, teams announced

Ross County host Rangers on Friday night in the clubs’ final pre-Christmas fixture which will be played in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

The Staggies find themselves tenth in the Premiership and lost last time out against St Johnstone. They had looked in a good position to collect the three points at home to the Perth Saints, and jump to ninth, with Jordan White having given Malky Mackay’s men an early lead which they took into the final 15 minutes. However, a late Ali Crawford double brought about the tenth league defeat of the season. Goals have been an issue for County with only Kilmarnock to have netted fewer.

Rangers have been the team to watch since the return to competitive action in the Premiership under new manager Michael Beale. They have defeated Hibs and Aberdeen 3-2 in back-to-back matches, coming from behind to do so on both occasions. The match in Dingwall will be the third time the Ibrox club will have played before Celtic and another chance to close the gap ahead of the Old Firm derby on January 2.
