Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Thanks to a routine 4-0 win over Livingston Celtic retained top position in the standings. The Hoops are determined to defend their Scottish Premier League trophy, but this time out, they are in a two-horse race. Rangers are breathing down Celtic’s neck, with the two bitter rivals being level on points ahead of Matchday 15. The title holders are likely to go for a win against Ross County, who are on an eight-game winless run in the Scottish top flight.
James Forrest scored a brace in the 4-0 victory over Livingston, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Considering that the Staggies head into Sunday’s football match following back-to-back defeats to Aberdeen and St. Mirren, we are tempted to put our money on the reigning champions. In their last meeting in the national championship, Celtic recorded a routine 6-0 win over Ross County.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
Highlighted Team (Celtic):
The Celtic Football Club boasts a proud over 100-year long history which has made The Bhoys a global brand thanks to their unprecedented social awareness that dates to the very beginnings of this Scottish club. Celtic was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow by raising money to help their fellow citizens.
The charity legacy continues to this day with Celtic still preserving their charitable traditions through the Celtic FC Foundation. The Celts play their home matches at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 people. One of the two most successful football clubs in Scotland with 47 Scottish League Championship titles to their name, Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, with the clubs known as the Old Firm.
European Cup winners from season 1966-67 and runners-up two years later, Celtic have been regular in European competitions since their first appearance in 1962-63. Their other most standout results have been runners-up in the EUFA Cup in 2003 and Intercontinental Cup in 1967.
