It's back to action in a big way for Ross County this weekend as they travel to Glasgow to face Celtic - but can they repeat their shock win at Parkhead from last season with both clubs sporting new-look sides?

Inverness Caledonian Thistle have a big match of their own as fellow promotion hopefuls Partick Thistle come calling to the Highland capital. ICT are fresh off a 4-0 win over Buckie Thistle in the SPFL Trust Trophy, but Will is not expecting any of the 10 changes to the starting 11 last time out to break into Billy Dodds' team.

There are also updates on Highland League clubs Clachnacuddin, Brora Rangers and Nairn County and a quick look at the North Caledonian League, before we discuss the opening day of the club rugby season last weekend and what Highland and Ross Sutherland have to look forward to tomorrow.

Finally, Luke Stoltman is in the headlines months after his younger brother became the World's Strongest Man as he claimed the European title in Leeds last weekend.
