The First Goal that Sparked Controversy

Jota scored the opening goal from the penalty spot after Alex Iacovitti handled the ball moments before the break. The penalty decision sparked a considerable amount of controversy, with Ross County manager Malky Mackay expressing his disappointment in the decision. He stated, “I’ve watched it half a dozen times, and I still can’t quite believe the bar for VAR in Scotland is so low. I look at that in England, and that’s not being given. It’s really disappointing that that then meant we were chasing the game, which we had to do in the second half.”

The Impact of County’s Bravery

Despite conceding early, Ross County remained brave and resolute throughout the game. Malky Mackay opted for a conservative approach initially, given the side’s previous seven straight defeats by Celtic. However, the manager’s boldness was evident in throwing bodies forward in search of an equalizer despite having to finish the game a man down due to a Ross Callachan injury. Although they were ultimately unable to overturn the deficit, County’s resilience highlights the improvements made by the team in recent weeks.

Alexandro Bernabei Secures the Victory for Celtic

With County down to ten men, Celtic capitalized on the opportunity and Alexandro Bernabei fired a late second goal, securing the victory for his side. This marks the eighth consecutive defeat for Ross County at the hands of Celtic, leaving them second-bottom and four points adrift of Kilmarnock.

Tomoki Iwata Named Player of the Match

Tomoki Iwata was named player of the match for Celtic, showcasing his impressive abilities on the pitch. Iwata controlled the game and was involved in many of his side’s attacking plays. His performance serves as a testament to the incredible depth and talent within Celtic’s midfield.

A Look Ahead

Celtic’s victory sets the stage for a highly anticipated first versus second derby showdown against Rangers on Saturday. It is sure to be a thrilling match that could have significant implications for the league standings. Meanwhile, Ross County will travel to face St Johnstone later that afternoon, looking to bounce back from this defeat.
