Celtic 2-0 Ross County: Deila picks up vital victory, Griffiths scores again

Celtic

Celtic beat Ross County 2-0 in the Scottish Premiership today.

Celtic picked up a much-needed victory this afternoon, as they beat Ross County 2-0 at Celtic Park thanks to goals from Leigh Griffiths and Dedryck Boyata.

The Bhoys have come in for stern criticism over the last two weeks, having lost 3-1 to Ross County in the Scottish League Cup, lost 2-1 away at Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership, and then unconvincingly edged past non-league East Kilbride in the Scottish Cup.

The pressure was certainly on manager Ronny Deila to pick up a result at home to Ross County this afternoon, and that's just what he got.

Top goalscorer Leigh Griffiths opened the scoring on the stroke of half time, notching his 30th goal of the season in the process.

Centre back Dedryck Boyata added a second after the break, and 2-0 is how it stayed as Celtic picked up a confidence-boosting win and a clean sheet.

Deila will still be under intense scrutiny even after today's result, but it was a step in the right direction after his side came through unscathed.
