Celtic are just 90 minutes away from the chance to retain their Scottish League Cup trophy and in the way are Ross County.

The Dingwall side have lost to Celtic twice already this season, the most notable a 4-1 loss at Victoria Park back in November.

After overcoming Dundee United at Hampden Park with goals from Kris Commons and James Forrest the Hoops lifted the League Cup last year and will hope to repeat that feat.

With a treble the only plausible option for Celtic and Ronny Deila given their early exit from European football, all the focus will be on getting a win this Sunday.

In Celtic’s last League Cup tie, they overcame a stubborn Hearts side at Tynecastle thanks to an impressive second-half performance from Tom Rogic.

The last time Celtic faced Ross County in a cup semi-final was 2010, when the Staggies won 2-0 to reach the Scottish Cup final.

New signing Erik Sviatchenko is fit enough to play and has been included in Sunday’s initial squad.

Kris Commons has recovered from a knock but Tom Rogic is unlikely to feature.

Dedryck Boyata could feature after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Scott Brown continues his recovery from injury as does Charlie Mulgrew and Saidy Janko.
