Ross County v Celtic

Champions Celtic are visiting Ross County for their latest game on Sunday afternoon (kick-off 12.30pm).

The Hoops welcome back striker Leigh Griffiths from a bone fracture in his back, although a couple of unidentified players were slight concerns.

"Injuries haven't helped me and at times I have tried to come back too quickly and broken down again, and that's the most frustrating bit," Griffiths admitted to BBC Scotland. "It is not about me or any individual. As long as we win trophies at the end of the season, that's all that matters."

The visitors are within ten points of totalling a century for the season with still half-a-dozen fixtures remaining, while their weekend opponents are just three above the relegation play-off spot.

Their skipper Andrew Davies is a major doubt for the contest and Martin Woods is currently suspended, although Jim O'Brien has now completed his ban.

Meanwhile, Jay McEveley [knee], Tony Dingwall [knee], Ian McShane [groin], Paul Quinn [hamstring] and Chris Burke [illness] are unavailable.
