Celtic begin defence with home win

Celtic 2-0 Ross County
-
Celtic began the defence of their Scottish Premiership title with a 2-0 home win over Ross County but not without cost or controversy.
-
Lisbon Lion John Clark unfurled the 2014/15 championship flag before kick-off - signifying the club's fourth title victory in succession - and Leigh Griffiths started the journey to number five when he opened the scoring from the spot after only four minutes.
-
However, the striker hobbled off after 19 minutes with an injury which could leave him struggling for the second-leg of the Hoops' Champions League third qualifier against Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Wednesday night.
-
Midfielder Stefan Johansen doubled Celtic's lead in the 35th minute with a drive after referee Willie Collum had angered the visitors by only showing Parkhead keeper Craig Gordon a yellow card for a 'last man' challenge outside the box on former Celt, Jackson Irvine.
-
Gordon went on to have a couple of good saves as the Dingwall men tried to battle back, but Celtic were worth for their 2-0 win, although they might have to defend their 1-0 first-leg victory over Qarabag without Griffiths, last season's top scorer.
