Ross County 0-1 Celtic - Commons fires Bhoys to narrow victory

Celtic FC Stands 2

Celtic moved three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with a 1-0 win over Ross County.

Celtic faced an early kick off today, with a trip to Ross County on the schedule for Ronny Deila's men, who were looking to build on the 4-0 midweek win over Motherwell.

Unsurprisingly, Celtic dominated the game against Ross County, with over 60% of possession in their favour, as well as having 15 shots on goal - even if only two were on target.

The winning goal came after half time, with Kris Commons hitting a long range shot in to the net, with the aid of a huge deflection, which sent the ball looping over Antonio Reguero and into the net on 52 minutes.

Celtic held on for all three points in a narrow victory, which sent them three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table after Aberdeen's 1-1 draw with St. Johnstone on Friday night.

The Bhoys also still have one more game in hand over Aberdeen, and today's win strengthens their bid for the title, with Deila looks to claim the crown in his first season in Scottish football.
