4 goal Celtic ease past Ross County

Van Dijk 1 nil
Well done Virgil as his mates congratulate with him

Superb today by Celtic, Lennon was delighted, he said we need more headed goals and we got 4 today. The formation today was a diamond and it worked superb for us, with Izzy and Fisher overlapping on either wing, these 2 lads need to be commended for their crossing today, it brought the goals we needed, we are also starting to get the new players involved and Biton was really good today, he looks like he can do a job

Celtic finally got a goal after trying for 40 minutes and on 41 minutes and it came from the superb Van Dijk, brilliant right footed cross from Izzy and Van Dijk headed it away from the keeping heading the ball back across from where it came. It took us till nearly half time to get going, but after the first goal, we never looked back

Celtic made it 2-0 when again Van Dijk scored from a brilliant cross from a Mulgrew corner, Virgil turned his head and got a touch on the ball dinking it past the keeper, brilliant goal. Even the Ross County manger said Celtic were brilliant today and we were, this is our first win up in Ross Counties new stadium

Brilliant by Van Dijk to make it 1-0

Ross County got a goal from nowhere and it came from nothing, a long shot saved well by Forster the quickest to get to it was Sproule to make it 2-1, and after 2-0 and very easy we were then looking at a possible hard last 20 minutes, but Celtic really turned it on, we destroyed County today, utterly destroyed them, we took Wednesday out on them today

3-1 came from a brilliant cross from Izaguirre and Ledley met it with the head and bulleted it past Mark Brown in goal, superb goal, and a goal we needed under 2 minutes after Ross County scored, we made it 4-1, same scorer but what magnificent cross from young Fisher the ball had rolled into the D at the corner flag, the kid wrapped his foot around it and dug a magnificent cross into the box and there was ledley to flick a backwards header over the keeper and into the net, superb goal, and game over

Ledley makes it 4-1 as Biton want in on the celebration

We were superb today in the second half, it was day where you could not really fault any player, Van Dijk again showed his class, he is doing it in the league and in Europe, so far he is the best signing, I think Lenny has made since last summer, easy a win we have had all season, we take  the 3 points back home, a brilliant display by Celtic today and credit to Lennon for changing the team up and formation as it worked well. One thing that does need to happen is Pukki needs a goal, the lad is struggling with confidence just now, Lennon wants to break the wage barrier in January for a striker, lets hope Pukki can get on the goals again soon because if he doesn’t here is a chance this move to Celtic could  go sour for him, but like you I think he can get back on the goal trail

  1. Hi Shaun

    I have been caught up in so many things lately, I have not been able to comment very much. I also had a problem posting over the weekend but Wullie has sorted it now. I am just having a break from doing a fancy lunch for my wife and sister-in-law. I started prep at 7.30 last night and that is me just getting it on the table. I have not even seen the Ross county game yet. I hope to now while they are munching on the uncooked roasties. That was my surprise dish 🙂

    I just wanted to say thanks for all your commentaries and your summaries of recent games – good and bad. Perhaps it was just as well I had time to reflect rather than burst in screaming last Thursday though I would have made no apology for any angry comments on the reports of the fans’ behaviour.

    Anyway, I just wanted a quick few words to say I am still breathing the Northumberland fresh air. I hope that does not upset you too much :). I hope to get the old typing FINGER moving again shortly.

    Hope you and the family are well. Have you wiped the smile off since Saturday. I think we should play back to front. That way we could hammer teams every week. Mind you, the forwards have still to prove how good they are in defence 🙂

    Take care
