Celtic gave their fans and the rest of the SPFL notice of what is in store with a 5-0 win away to Ross County.
It wasn’t a vintage display by any stretch of the imagination but on the road home there would have been a good few aspects of the performance for Neil Lennon to enthuse over.
While neither player looked 100% fit there is definitely goals in the forward partnership of Albian Ajeti and Odsonne Edouard with the Swiss striker very much a penalty box predator.
Two early goals from the strikers put Celtic in control although Vasilis Barkas was called on more than Lennon would have liked the new keeper showed that he knows how to protect his net.
After Shane Duffy powered in a debut header in the 59th minute Celtic looked capable of scoring every time that they crossed the half-way line.
Fellow defender Kris Ajer powered in a striker’s goal from close range to put Celtic four in front before Patryk Klimala atoned for an earlier miss with the fifth and final goal of the day allowing Lennon to send on David Turnbull and Ismaila Soro for their Celtic debuts.
