ROSS COUNTY manager Jim McIntyre thought keeper Scott Fox was at fault for Erik Sviatchenko’s opening goal in Celtic’s 2-0 win at Parkhead last night.
The former Hoops shot stopper looked slow to react to the Dane’s long-range effort that swept low past his right hand for the crucial breakthrough effort in the 38th minute.
And Stuart Armstrong beat him again on the stroke of half-time to make certain there would be no shock result in the east end of Glasgow.
McIntyre said: “We were compact and disciplined and had two great chances on the counter and we have got to stick one away.
“Equally, it was disappointing to lose the goals the way we did.
“The first goal, Scott Fox has put his hand up – he has to save it. He has been fantastic for us , he has saved us on several occasions this season, so I am not going to be too critical.”
Asked if anyone was capable of preventing Brendan Rodgers’ side from extending their run of 23 domestic games undefeated, McIntyre replied: “They are certainly beatable.
“But what you’ve got to say is they are doing fantastically well and the strength in depth that they have in their squad is where they are particularly impressive.
“When you look at the bench that they had on this occasion and the options they’ve got to come on and influence the game, then it makes it tough for the opposition.”
Celtic have collected 55 points, dropping only 2 up at Inverness Caley Thistle in September in a 2-2 draw with the home side leveling the match against the run of play in the closing minutes.
