Celtic’s 0-0 draw at Motherwell seems like a lifetime ago but three wins over eight days can send the hoops into the semi-final of the Scottish Cup with the Premiership title virtually wrapped up.
Brendan Rodgers will have half an eye on the matches against Dundee and Hamilton Accies when he selects his team to face Ross County while checking on the fitness of his international contingent.
Forcing his hand in defence is the absences of Jozo Simunovic (suspended) and Kieran Tierney (injury) but that is more than compensated for with the anticipation of seeing Kris Ajer and Jack Hendry paired together.
For the first time this year there is real competition for places with three strikers available for selection although Moussa Dembele is clearly the man in possession.
At Ibrox the strength of the Celtic bench sent out a message with the good news being that the squad is getting stronger week by week.
With the injury problems receding Rodgers can now concentrate of players and formations which can only be good news as the Celtic support look for their favourites to tie up the title in style.
