Odsonne Edouard came off the bench and scored a three minute brace to help Celtic to a 3-0 win over Ross County at Parkhead.
Callum McGregor opened the scoring from the penalty spot shortly before half time, after Mikey Johnston was tripped over inside the area.
McGregor then turned provider after the hour mark, with Edouard coming on and scoring a header with his first touch, nodding McGregor’s corner ball past Nathan Baxter in County’s goal.
The Frenchman quickly doubled his personally tally for the game a few minutes later to give the Hoops both the three points and their third consecutive win in all competitions since losing to Rangers in late December.
The 22-year old striker has now scored 16 goals in the Scottish Premiership this season, four goals ahead of Rangers’ star and front man Alfredo Morelos.
Here is how we rated the Hoops’ players following this latest encounter:
Fraser Forster - 6
Managed to keep a clean sheet despite having to work harder than he would have liked, ideally.
Moritz Bauer - 5
Filling in for the injury Jeremie Frimpong, Bauer was shaky at the back, although he did commit himself well in offensive positions.
Christopher Jullien - 6
The best of Celtic’s below par defensive line, Jullien wasn’t without fault, but he grew into the game and ultimately gave a good account of himself.
Jozo Simunovic - 5
The Bosnian didn’t look comfortable at all and really struggled with Ross County’s offensive movement. Perhaps he has played too much football recently and could use a moment to breathe.
Jonny Hayes - 5
While he was lacking in defensive areas, he was able to offer something in attack, putting in the occasionally good cross.
Scott Brown - 6
Brown grew into the game but, like most of Celtic’s side, he struggled to compose himself in the early stages. Not his best showing, but he did enough to see the Hoops over the line.
Olivier Ntcham - 6
Ntcham saw the game largely pass him by against Ross County, as he struggled to keep up with the pace of the game. He was withdrawn in the second half, and rightly so.
Callum McGregor - 7
While his overall play might not have been up to the standard that the club would have liked to have seen, McGregor grabbed a goal and an assist, and that usually talks for itself.
Jams Forrest - 6
On his comeback from injury Forrest wasn’t as influential as he has proven to be in the past, but that is to be expected.
Mikey Johnston -7
A solid performance from Johnston, he looked dangerous in attack and though he drifted in and out of the game, he made his impact felt through winning McGregor’s penalty.
Leigh Griffiths - 6
Given his chance to shine in place of Edouard but largely failed to take his opportunity. Still, he was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
Odsonne Edouard – 8
Came on, turned the game on its head and scored twice, couldn’t ask for more.
Tom Rogic – N/A
Karamoko Dembele – N/A
