Ross County have managed to record their first league victory over Celtic in eight years and their second in three months overall.

Jordan White’s second half header secured a memorable 1-0 win for John Hughes’ Staggies as Celtic were left reeling after another set-play mishap, over 40% of goals conceded by the Hoops this season coming from said situations.

While the poor season at Celtic Park has been well-documented, few gave Ross County a chance in this tie, despite the 2-0 League Cup victory at Parkhead last year. But points were needed in their battle to remain a Premiership club.

They managed to secure three big ones as White met a Harry Paton free-kick, his second goal since arriving from relegation rivals Motherwell last month. It’s a win that moves them out of the relegation places.

Hughes has now masterminded victories over Aberdeen, Celtic and Hibs while Staggies boss, but he will be eager to find a way to beat those around him, Motherwell, Kilmarnock and Hamilton all picking up points against them over the course of this term.
