Celtic powered on domestically with a 4-1 win over Ross County at Dingwall.
Four headed goals retained the hoops unbeaten league record although Neil Lennon would have been happier if the goals had come from his strikers.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Ledley proved that heading the the ball isn’t a lost art with two goals apiece as they notched their first goals of the season.
After the midweek disappointment of the Champions League Lennon was delighted by the response of his players.
“It was a great reaction to Wednesday night and we have preserved our unbeaten (league) record which delights me,” the hoops boss said. “I thought we played very well.
“There were some good individual performances. It is a constant source of frustration that we don’t score enough headers from set-pieces.
“You are waiting on one and we get four in one day so it has been a good day all-round and puts pressure on the rest of the teams to keep with us.”
Turning to his goalscorers the Irishman added: “He (Virgil) has got that in his game.
“He has been a bit off in his timing so we have worked with him on that and we are delighted that he has been able to come up with two.
“He is a special player, he is playing exceptionally well at the minute, as are a number of them.
“Joe has had a relatively stop-start beginning to the season. He has had a few injury problems and he is just starting to look more like himself.”
