The impressive aspect of Celtic's victory in Dingwall which has rarely been mentioned

It was an impressive Sunday afternoon for Celtic in the Highlands, as Ange Postecoglou’s side ran out comfortable 2-0 winners in the end over Ross County.

Goals either side of the half from Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota sent the Bhoys back to six points clear at the top, and the Celtic support were left delighted by what they had seen.

There were many good aspects of the Celtic performance, bouncing back from such a disappointing weekend last Sunday against an in-form Ross County, who have been tough opposition this season.

One aspect of the win that hasn’t been mentioned is how Celtic overcame a side who were on rich home form coming into the game, with Malky MacKay’s side having last lost at home in the league back in December.

Their last defeat in Dingwall actually came against Ange Postecoglou’s side – Anthony Ralston’s late 97th minute – which wasn’t exactly an easy night for Celtic.

Funnily enough, it was a big talking point going into the match, but little mentioned since.

Looking back to yesterday afternoon, though, Celtic didn’t make this Ross County side look like one of the form teams in the league, pushing for a European spot.

Right from the first whistle, the players were imposing our style on the game and delivered a brilliant three points to kickstart the final five fixtures of the season.

Victory in Dingwall bodes well for the run-in

Heading into the first of five post-split fixtures, many supporters were feeling nervous about the trip to the Highlands, given how tight the last game there between the sides was and the form of Ross County.

But, Postecoglou and his players well and truly put those fears to bed, producing another top performance, which could have seen them win by more than the two goals they got.

With three out of the final four fixtures coming at Celtic Park, some would have argued that Sunday’s game was the toughest of the lot as Celtic began to close in on the Premiership title.

It bodes well for those final fixtures, seeing the squad bounce back from last weekend’s disappointment and to produce a performance like that at a challenging venue without being phased.

In other news, yet another pundit tries to rope Celtic into petty rivals issue.
