A clinical Celtic cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory against 10-man Ross County.
Moussa Dembele fired the Hoops ahead from the penalty spot after 25 minutes before Staggies captain Andrew Davies was sent off for a late challenge on Scott Brown.
Stuart Armstrong and Tom Rogic netted early in the second half to put the game beyond the Dingwall side.
The Staggies made three alterations from the team that drew 2-2 with Hamilton Accies before the international break.
Ross Draper, Tim Chow and Jamie Lindsay, ineligible against his parent club, missed out with Jim O’Brien, Craig Curran and Harry Souttar drafted in from the start.
The Hoops, held to a 0-0 draw by Motherwell on their last outing, made three changes with Mikael Lustig, Stuart Armstrong and Scott Sinclair starting at the expense of Jack Hendry, Olivier Ntcham and Odsonne Edouard.
Both teams created chances early on with Billy Mckay’s low drive forcing Scott Bain into action after five minutes before Armstrong and Moussa Dembele both went close for the hosts.
Scott Sinclair, seeking a first goal in 10 games, went close from a clever corner kick routine that almost caught out the Ross County defence.
But the Hoops made the breakthrough from the penalty spot after 26 minutes when Sinclair was tripped by Jason Naismith and Dembele slotted home from 12 yards for his 14th goal of the campaign.
Brendan Rodgers’ side looked to press home their advantage before the break with James Forrest volleying wide after some neat interplay with Lustig.
Ross County’s challenge became even tougher six minutes before the break when Staggies captain Davies was sent off for a reckless challenge on Brown.
And it went from bad to worse when goalkeeper Aaron McCarey limped off in the final minute of the first half and was replaced by Scott Fox.
It took only three minutes of the second half for Celtic to make their numerical advantage count with Armstrong afforded too much space on the edge of the area to find the bottom corner with a left-footed drive.
Australian international Rogic added the third for Celtic on the hour mark, latching on to Forrest’s pass and calmly rolling the ball beyond the advancing Fox.
