Ross County have sent shockwaves around Scottish football with a huge result at Celtic Park.
The Staggies have beaten Celtic 2-0 in Glasgow to eliminate the League Cup holders from the competition. Ross Stewart and Alex Iacovitti goals either side of half-time secured the huge win.
Celtic have won the last four League Cup competitions and have won every trophy going for the last few seasons. It was only a matter of time before someone dethroned them.
Few would likely have predicted it would be Ross County to be the ones to do so, even more impressive that it was done on their travels from Dingwall.
County haven’t beaten Premiership opposition since August and after losing 3-1 to 10-man Kilmarnock last weekend, they needed a response. Kettlewell got that and more in Glasgow.
Now the League Cup opens up for a new winner to claim the crown. In the meantime, fans have reacted to the big cup result.
The main focus on this result is going to be about Celtic so I’m going to leave that alone and instead laud Ross County for a quite superb performance.
Had a clear game plan and carried it out to perfection.
Work ethic was incredible and they got exactly what they deserved.

Crucially, it is vital to credit @RossCounty and Stuart Kettlewell today.
A fantastic performance from a side under a lot of pressure.
I have a lot of time for the club as they’ve always been really good to me.
Could this rejuvenate their season? pic.twitter.com/VQ2on7HFsZ

It is absolutely tragic that this result and then tweet has turned into a mud slinging contest between the gloryhunters.
Well done today great result County.
