Unbeaten Celtic take on struggling Ross County in the Scottish League Cup

Celtic will take on Ross County away from home in the second round of the Scottish League Cup.

The Scottish champions are one of the two teams who are unbeaten in the 2022-23 Scottish league and the only team to win all their league games so far. Ange Postecoglou's team has won all five of their league matches and that run includes a 9-0 win against Dundee United in their last match.

Their opponents, Ross County, on the other hand have won just one game this season. Their previous outing ended in a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Rangers.
