Jota and Jenz will take most of the headlines but another J- goalkeeper Joe Hart played a huge role in Celtic’s 3-1 win over Ross County today.
For most of the second half the two teams were on level terms after Alex Iacovitti had equalised Kyogo Furuhashi’s 48th minute opener.
The homeside didn’t have much in the way of chances but from se-pieces they always carried a threat.
Owura Edwards knows how to deliver a free-kick, the Celtic defence were clearly briefed on what to expect with Furuhashi crouched behind the wall.
The on-loan Bristol City forward wasn’t deterred- shot straight through the wall but was met by an instinctive one-handed save from Hart, thankfully.

In the final 10 minutes Celtic capitalised on Hart’s save to score through Moritz Jenz and Liel Abada to maintain their two match winning start to the season.
After storming to last season’s title the hoops are on a run of 34 matches unbeaten with 17 wins from their last 20 matches as they prepare to go to Kilmarnock on Sunday.
