    Highlights of Celtic’s win over Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.

    Celtic moved five points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a routine 3-0 win at home to Ross County.

    Callum McGregor opened the scoring with a 37th-minute penalty, converted low into the right corner, after Michael Johnston was brought down by Keith Watson.

    Odsonne Edouard headed home in the 65th minute from a McGregor corner before firing home the third just three minutes later.

    Victory moved the hosts further clear of Rangers, although their Old Firm rivals have two games in hand, the first of which is at bottom side Hearts on Sunday.

    Hearts remained four points adrift as second-bottom Hamilton went down 4-2 at home to Livingston, despite taking the lead.

    Shaun Want put the hosts in front, but goals from Craig Sibbald and Lyndon Dykes had them trailing at the break.
