John Hartson reacts on Twitter to Celtic's defeat against Ross County

Celtic were beaten 3-1 by Ross County in the Scottish League Cup semi-final.

John Hartson has expressed his disappointment on Twitter, after Celtic exited the Scottish League Cup earlier today.

The Bhoys were beaten 3-1 by Ross County at Hampden Park in a highly damaging defeat for Ronny Deila’s side.

Celtic are now unable to complete the domestic treble this season, but Hartson is still hopeful of seeing his former side lift plenty of silverware by the end of the campaign.

Celtic’s defeat to Ross County has heaped further pressure on Deila. who is losing support rapidly at Parkhead.

The Bhoys have struggled in Europe under the Norwegian’s stewardship, and this unexpected cup defeat to Ross County has only served to make the grumbles louder.

Celtic were well beaten in the end, after having a man sent off.

The Bhoys took the lead in the first minute through Gary Mackay-Steven, but after Efe Ambrose was shown the red card County took charge.

Goals from Martin Woods, Paul Quinn and Alex Schalk confirmed Jim McIntyre’s side’s place in the final, where they will take on Hibernian, while Celtic have to lick their wounds and go again.
