Ross County manager Malky Mackay was left disappointed to see his side concede a 97th-minute goal to Celtic and snatch a hard-earned point away from the Staggies – with Mackay admitting that it seemed as though the game would just continue until Celtic grabbed a second.

Anthony Ralston’s late, late header downed Ross County and Mackay confessed he was happy with the way his side committed themselves and caused problems for the Parkhead side.

After the final whistle, Mackay wasn’t happy with referee Alan Muir as the ten-man Hoops grabbed their late winner and stunned the Staggies.

“I’m disappointed for the boys more than anything else,” Mackay told BBC Scotland’s Sportsound.

“The challenge in the second half was to be brave and press high and we did cause them issues.

“We fought right to the last. It’s interesting that it’s the seventh minute of added-on time that the referee gives that they score in.

“It seemed to be as if we were playing until they scored to be honest with you.

“I think you saw the relief from both their management and their fans at how happy they were to leave with anything.”

The result leaves Ross County eleventh in the league table, ahead of St Johnstone, ahead of making the trip to face Livingston this weekend.
