Former Rangers striker Steven Thompson has predicted on the BBC Sport Scotland Facebook page that Celtic will win against Ross County this afternoon.

Celtic will take on County away from home at the Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall in the Scottish Premiership in a few hours’ time.

Former Rangers and Scotland international striker Thompson has backed Brendan Rodgers’s side to pick up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 3-1 win.

The 39-year-old has also backed 21-year-old French striker Moussa Dembele to score for the Hoops.

Thompson predicted on the BBC Sport Scotland Facebook page: “My prediction, first off, is Ross County 1-3 Celtic.”

“Celtic will win the game,” added Thompson. “Dembele will score because Dembele scored a hat-trick for the French Under-21 national team during the week.”

“Dembele will score two, Celtic will win 3-1,” continued Thompson.

Celtic are in great form at the moment, and they should be able to pick up all three points against County at Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall with ease.

The Hoops are still unbeaten in the league this season, and it is hard to see Owen Coyle's side get the better of the Glasgow giants even at home.

Rodgers's Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 30 points from 12 matches and look set for the league title.
