Rodgers welcomes back six Celtic players from injury

The Hoops boss will make a late decision on whether or not they will play against Ross County.

Celtic are set to be boosted by the return of six first-team players from injury ahead of their weekend trip to the Highlands.

The Scottish champions face Ross County in the Premiership's lunchtime kick off on Saturday and they could have almost a full squad to choose from.

Leigh Griffiths (calf), Stuart Armstrong (abductor) and Scott Brown (ankle), all missed Scotland's 1-0 defeat to the Netherlands last week but now are available for selection.

Longer-term absentees Patrick Roberts (hamstring), Jozo Simunovic (hamstring) and Erik Sviatchenko (knee) have also returned to training after their respective set backs.

Simunovic has not played since the win over Rangers in September while Sviatchenko has not featured in any domestic games this season.

He was also sidelined during the Champions League qualifiers in August.

Tom Rogic returns to Scotland from his successful World Cup qualifying exertions with Australia during the week, when they booked their place in next summer's tournament with a play-off win over Honduras, but will not feature at the weekend due to the travelling.

Anthony Ralston, who has not played since the 2-2 draw with Hibernian at the end of September, has returned to training after a knee injury but Saturday's fixture will come too soon for the youngster.

Celtic are going for 64 consecutive games unbeaten in domestic competition when they travel to Dingwall on Saturday.

They set a new British record before the international break when they bettered their own 100-year old tally of 63 games without defeat.
