Celtic have lost two of their biggest stars to Premier League clubs in recent weeks as both Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper decided to play their football south of the border. Manager Neil Lennon has raided the Dutch Eredivisie and brought in former Ajax left-winger Derk Boerrigter and ex-Groningen centre-back Virgil Van Dijk to help fill the void along with other recent signings Steven Mouyokolo and Amido Balde. Whether or not the new look squad will be as effective as the side which ran away with the title last season remains to be seen, but Celtic played well when beating a stubborn Elfsborg side 1-0 on Wednesday and will be a tough assignment for Ross County.
The Staggies managed a creditable 2-2 draw against a Manchester United XI last week and completed their pre-season preparations with a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Dutch side PEC Zwolle. Derek Adams who is in his second spell as Ross County manager, almost guided the club into Europe last season and will be looking to build on their 2012/13 performance starting with a positive result on Saturday.

Last time the sides met was at Victoria Park where Ross County held Celtic to a 1-1 draw, but when the sides met at Celtic Park in December it was the green and white hoops of Celtic who were celebrating after a one-sided 4-0 win.
