‘You are certain to see Celtic do this many times this season’

first_img1 Celtic kick off the Scottish Premiership season Celtic kicked off the defence of their Scottish Premiership title with a 2-0 home win over Ross County at Parkhead.Leigh Griffiths gave the home side the lead with a goal from the spot after only four minutes.However, the striker hobbled off after 19 minutes with an injury which could leave him struggling for the second-leg of the Hoops’ Champions League third qualifier against Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Wednesday night.Midfielder Stefan Johansen doubled Celtic’s lead in the 35th minute after referee Willie Collum had angered the visitors by only showing Parkhead keeper Craig Gordon a yellow card for a ‘last man’ challenge outside the box on former Celt, Jackson Irvine.Gordon went on to make a couple of good saves as the Dingwall men tried to battle back, but Celtic began the campaign with what is certain to be the first of many victories as they aim for a fifth successive title.last_img
