Manager Ange Postecoglou said Celtic required “perseverance” to earn a hard-fought

Scottish Premiership win against a stubborn Ross County.

County frustrated the hosts until the 64th minute, when debutant center-back Cameron Carter-Vickers’

long-range strike deflected over Ross Laidlaw.

“We needed a goal to open to them up,” Postecoglou said.

“When you don’t get it, it gives them confidence and they defended well. We’ve seen in other games if

we score early it opens the game up. The info we gave to the whole group at half-time was ‘stick to our principles’.”

County drop to 11th and are still without a league win this term around.

But Malky Mackay will be encouraged by his side’s shape and organization for over an hour of the contest.

As for Celtic Postecoglou men put distractions surrounding chief executive Dom McKay’s shock departure to

one side as they eventually broke down a resolute visiting defence to secure a third straight home league win.

Expectation was placed on the shoulders of debutant winger Jota and he was living up to the hype early on,

having a shot from distance saved and a close-range effort sail over either side of Liel Abada having

an attempt parried onto the bar.

Celtic continued to probe and a free-flowing breakaway resulted in Ajeti having a tame effort saved,

before David Turnbull put a 25-yard effort just wide of the near post.

It seemed it would take something special or fortuitous to break County down and it was the latter as Cameron-Vickers’

deflected effort looped over a helpless Laidlaw.

but the contest was over when Abada’s inch-perfect delivery was headed in by Ajeti.

The Swiss striker added his second, and Celtic’s third, when he nodded in a close-range rebound.
