It was a very tough away game at Dingwall this afternoon as usual for every team that travels up there.
The wind played a big part and Ross County were tough and aggressive, and of course this was aided by referee Don Robertson, who has a history of allowing teams to rough us up to the point where our players have suffered serious injuries as a consequence.
Celtic however did control the first half but didn’t create too many chances and definitely not clear cuts ones, but you could sense that we would soon get the breakthrough from our constant attacking play.
And that breakthrough came in the 48th minute, as Callum McGregor played a lovely weighted ball to Jota, who did wonderfully to pick out Kyogo, who slotted the ball expertly into the near post past the keeper with a first time finish.
The abysmal Celtic TV stream crashed for around 25 minutes of the second half, so I don’t think anyone saw the Ross County goal, but the commentators said that Jenz would be disappointed in himself with not winning the header for their goal.
However, the big German certainly made up for any mistake he possibly made as he leapt in the air from a brilliant Jota ball in and fired in the header to make it 2-1 on 84 minutes.
Just before this, Celtic fans who’s stream came back on a bit earlier than others, also said that Joe Hart pulled off a magnificent save while the game was 1-1, so credit to Hart for that as he adds to the list of crucial saves he has made for us since joining the club last summer.
And Abada topped it all off with a beautiful goal to make it 3-1 on 91 minutes.
There was a series of lovely passes between McGregor Taylor and Jota, before the Portuguese star picked out Abada, who angled a fabulous strike into the corner of the net, ensuring Celtic finish this weekend’s fixtures top of the league.
