An early sending off left Ross County with a mountain to climb against the Champions and though they were made to wait for them Celtic eventually got the goals to take all three points in the Highlands.
In a game littered with VAR incidents David Turnbull, Luis Palma and James Forrest got the all-important goals, and Forrest has now scored in fifteen straight seasons for the Hoops – a phenomenal record.
The manager took the opportunity to rest a number of key players for this one and can now look ahead with confidence to a challenge of a different kind as we head to Atletico to face Madrid on Tuesday.
Tino and James bring you all the key talking points from the Highlands in the latest Final Whistle Show.
