And 2 stunning strikes from Haaland.

Ajer does look to have refocused, thankfully.

Haaland is a beast; can't wait for someone in the Prem to stump up the readies for him.

Not sure if he wants to go there yet, Real Madrid also high up on the list of clubs. 
Still young , just hope he can keep developing and avoid serious injuries.

We need him to score the goals for Norway , we should be guaranteed a place in the Euros with him playing, never seen him miss the target.

Reckon it'll be Leeds if they stay up and show promise

Celtic made the trip to the highlands and racked up a fine win against a spirited County, who did cause us a few problems.

NL went with 3 at the back and, more importantly, 2 up front.

Eddy got fouled and scored from the spot early doors, then Ajeti poached a goal and we went in 2 up at HT.

Duffy with a trade mark header put the game to bed. NL used his bench, good to see debut for Turnbull and also game time for Soro. Ajer gets our 4th after good work by Nicham and then Polish Pat gets on the score sheet after unselfish work by MoEly, having earlier missed a sitter.

Our keeper done well with a few fine saves. CalMac was on set piece duty, not much improvement.

Next up is a mid week trip to a poor St Mirren side, so would expect/like to see some squad rotation. Maybe 3 changes, not too much disruption.

Only saw the highlights but 2 early goals made for a stress free afternoon checking on updates. Satisfying to see a good goal tally. Ajeti continues to impress with 3 from3.  Latest rumour has Arsenal sniffing at French eddy so you never know.  Defence looked dodgy at times and we would hope more games will bring all up to speed including Shane Duffy. Goalie bailed us out on one or two occasions.

 

A humorous aside from Duffy goal was Jullien was flattened and was looking for a penalty before realising that Celtic had scored.

 

Soro seemed to have impressed in his 20 minutes or so action. We have so many midfielders now that I hope Lennon does not continue to indulge sacred cows but spreads the load between them. With so many games coming up some squad rotation would be a sensible option at times. 3 points again on Wednesday hopefully.

Yea, and it was Duffy who flattened him.

Great news Boli away to Turkey for a years loan, with option to buy, hopefully never see this <deleted> in a Celtic top again. Can see us bringing in a left back/wing back now, as we are  light in this position.

Also, young Robertson away to Gillingham on loan, good move for him, was never going to get a look in, as we are so well stacked in midfield.

3 points from one of our "Boli" games in hand, but a poor performance.

They score a way too easy goal from a corner in 3rd min, we get 2 headed goals in first half. Second half, Eddy had a chance to calm the nerves but was way too casual with penalty. 

Taylor was rank rotten, no way is he a wing back, maybe a left back in a 4 4 2, every time he gets the ball, its stop, play a long pass backwards. Not once did he play a forward pass and cannot go past his man.

It was a typical Celtic performance against a packed defense, all that sideways passing with no penetration. That Brown/CalMac/Christie midfield trio just does not cut it. Christie is hot and cold, had 2 assists and won penalty,  but was so wayward with passing, just needs to chill, show more composure. Klimala was non existent, ElHam sloppy.

Hard for me to even pick a MOM. Also hard to take any positives, except for taking 3pts, Duffy looks real deal, another goal and Ajer looking focused and doing what he does best, carrying out the ball from the back.
