Ross County will have freedom at home to attack Premiership champions Celtic, says captain Fraser


By Andrew Henderson


Ross County club captain Marcus Fraser believes there will be a freedom that comes with facing the defending champions in Dingwall on Sunday.

The Staggies’ recent struggles have been well-documented, conceding 21 goals in their last seven games.

But being back at the Global Energy Stadium to take on Celtic will make a difference, according to the County skipper, who wants the fans to help drive the players up the park.

“That’s what you need when you play against Celtic and Rangers,” he said.

“Of course, there’s never any easy games in these leagues, and when you come up against Celtic and Rangers they are obviously the top sides.

“When you go away from home it’s a lot more difficult, you need to stay a lot more compact, but when you’re at home you can maybe throw bodies forward a wee bit more.

“If we can win some corners we can get the crowd behind us, so we’ll look to do that.

“They will bring a good crowd as well, they always do, so we need to use that as motivation.

“Hopefully when the game kicks off on Sunday we’ll be at it.”
