Ross County manager Malky Mackay and players like Arsenal loanee Harry Clarke have been giving their takes on a 3-0 loss to Celtic.

The Dingwall club’s search for a first Scottish Premiership win will continue into the sixth match of the season after defeat in front of 60,000 people at Parkhead. County frustrated their hosts, but ultimately, were comfortably beaten by superior opposition.

Arsenal loanee Harry Clarke said it was a ‘shame about the result but what an experience playing at Celtic Park!’ On-loan Coventry City man Jack Burroughs shared similar sentiment, saying it was a ‘disappointing result but an amazing experience.’

Manager Mackay meanwhile knows his side will improve from their slow start to the season, having been given a tough run of games against both Celtic and Rangers, plus matches against St Johnstone, Aberdeen and Hibs.

He said: “When I look at the hand we have been dealt, with the first five games against the top five teams from last season. People were saying we were not going to take a point out of it, but I think we have gone toe-to-toe with every team.

“I will take that for the rest of the season because going forward we will be playing teams around about us.”
