Brendan Rodgers summed it up perfectly in one sentence, for the glass half full brigade it made perfect sense.

I’m very pleased with the players because we kept another clean sheet and like what good teams do, we started quickly and finished strongly,” the hoops boss reflected. “They produced another very good performance.”

The eighty minute stretch between the goals from Patrick Roberts and Stuart Armstrong contained a few worrying moments but by the final whistle any doubts were dispelled.

For the travelling support there was three great memories to take back down the A9 as star subs Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair added to their impressive goal tallies.

With eight changes, or three players retained, from the Hampden win over Sevco the trip to Dingwall was never going to be a walk in the park.

County were strong, direct and physical which caused a few difficult moments but when called upon Craig Gordon was on top of his game.

The keeper did have one moment of madness when he charged out of his penalty box for a ball that he was never going to win, fortunately the consistently inconsistent Alan Muir decided it was a yellow card offence.

With results elsewhere going Celtic’s way the chant of ‘championees’ went up from the away support, a win on Saturday at Aberdeen will make that claim hard to dispute as Rodgers side starts to find their feet and stretch their legs.
