Celtic have surged to another victory in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon, beating Ross County 4-1 in the Highlands to move three points clear at the top of the table.
With Rangers playing at home later today, it was a crucial win. It’s also one that makes it ten-in-a-row when it comes to victories for Neil Lennon’s men.
Ryan Christie was the bright star in the first half, scoring a double that had us ahead at the interval. Tom Rogic then made it comfortable in the second half with a composed finish, before Mikey Johnston netted a stunning effort from the bench.
Those players will make the headlines, but another a contribution from another Celtic star had fans buzzing on social media – Kristoffer Ajer’s assist.
The centre-half consistently probed with the ball into the opposition half throughout the afternoon. It was his run and through ball that unlocked a packed County defence for Christie to latch onto and slot home to put us ahead in the match after the home side equalised.
It was a pass that sums up what the player can offer in matches where we dictate territory and possession. He has that kind of vision in his locker, having started his career as a midfielder.
Celtic will now march on to Wednesday night, when we play Hamilton at Celtic Park.
These fans took to Twitter this afternoon to share their thoughts on Ajer’s display…
Whit a ball from Ajer.
