Carter-Vickers opens account

Celtic were frustrated by Ross County for the first hour of their matchup on Saturday, before new signing Cameron Carter-Vickers broke the deadlock after 64 minutes.

Striker Albian Ajeti, playing due to an injury to Kyogo Furuhashi and lack of match fitness for new signing Giorgios Giakoumakis, rounded off the win with goals in the 70th and 85th minutes.

Another new signing, Portuguese winger Jota, made his debut for the side and impressed.

The Bhoys begin their Europa League campaign away from home on Thursday, their group contains Real Betis, Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros.

Perseverance pleases Postecoglou

Postecoglou said: "It was one we had to persevere in. We needed a goal to open to them up. When you don't get it, it gives them confidence and they defended well. It was Ajeti's first game in ages and Jota's first game for the club, it's not going to be as smooth as it would be if you had Kyogo in there.

"We've seen in other games if we score early it opens the game up. The info we gave to the whole group at half-time was stick to our principles. Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota were making their debuts and were excellent."
