Celtis are now moving closer to wining their seventh successive league title with a comfortable 3-0 win over relegation bound Ross County.
The Bhoys are now 12 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table and it seems only a matter of time until the title is written in their name.
Brendan Rodgers’ men dominated the match practically from the beginning to the end, but had to wait until 24th minute to take the lead, when the returning Scott Sinclair was fouled in the penalty box and Moussa Dembele did manage to net his 14th goal of the season.
Celtic’s aim was helped even further when Ross County captain Andrew Davies was sent-off in the 39th minute for a strong tackle on Bhoys skipper Scott Brown.
They went 2-0 ahead in the 48th minute, when Stuart Armstrong made his return to the first-team with a brilliant striker. Tom Rogic put Celtic 3-0 up with a lovely goal on the hour mark as the Bhoys remained in control.
Celtic, however, failed to add to the score but the good news for Hoops faithfuls continued as Leigh Griffiths made his first appearances in two months in the second-half.
Here, we looks at three things we learned in Celtic’s win over Ross County:
Stuart Armstrong back to his best:
Stuart Armstrong returned to Celtic starting line-up for the first time since December, and his performance was the highlight of the game.
He was back at the level he showed last season, as he showed the match with his runs from midfield which constantly gave the Dingwall side issues.
Armstrong sealed his great performance with a goal in the second-half and if he keeps his level of performance up he will be a key player for Celtic for the rest of the season.
Celtic handed huge boost with Griffiths returns
Perhaps the most important aspect of the game wasn’t the scoreline or the great performance of Stuart Armstrong, but the first appearance since January for Leigh Griffiths.
The 27-year-old was in great from for the Hoops before his injury, and his return from injury is a huge boost for the Bhoys as they aim to clinch a second consecutive domestic treble.
It will be interesting to see if he make a return to the starting line-up for the Hoops when they take on Dundee at Celtic Park on Wednesday night.
Nothing, noone is stopping Brown
Scott Brown just can be stopped, as he once again showed his indestructible streak against the Dingwall side.
The 32-year-old senior star was the victim of a very crude challenge/stamp from Ross County captain Andrew Davies which saw him sent-off, but as usual Brown dusted himself off and got on with the game.
Brown might be a marked man, but a long as he keeps going the Hoops will keep going, no matter how crude the challenges he faces will be.
