Mortiz Jenz scored on his debut to help Celtic produce one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Kyogo Furuhashi opened the scoring in the 48th minute before Alex Iacovitti drew the host’s level. Jenz then gave the visitors the lead in the 84th minute before Liel Abada sealed the three points in stoppage time.
Ross County manager Malky Mackay: “It’s been a tough week in terms of the work we’ve done off the pitch in terms of the tactical messages I have given them and the footage we have watched. We play in a manner that doesn’t allow us to be carved open because we were playing against a Champions League team. At the same time, we needed the belief too, at times, threaten their goal, which we did. I was heartbroken for them because they were four or five minutes from putting in a performance that really puts people’s heads up in Scottish football saying ‘what’s going on there?'”
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “We know it’s a difficult place to come and it’s a difficult team to play, and with the conditions being as they are with the wind, you know it’s going to be a real challenge. But credit to the players, from start to finish we played it on our terms. We were patient when we needed to be, we got a goal I thought we deserved. They scored from a corner which is always a possibility, they are a big strong team. But our response was outstanding. We stuck to our task, played our football, scored another good goal and even then there was no thought of stopping there, we got our third and I’m really pleased with every aspect of our game.”
