Watch: Leigh Griffiths Secures Win For Celtic With A Magnificent Free Kick

Celtic extended their record unbeaten domestic run to 64 games after a magnificent Leigh Griffiths free-kick broke Ross County's hearts to secure league leaders a 1-0 victory.

The substitute struck with only 12 minutes remaining, curling the ball home from 30 yards to secure all three points for Celtic.

The moment of individual brilliance was crucial to Brendan Rodgers side in securing all three points as Ross County defended heroically throughout the 90 minutes. Celtic dominated possession but had nothing to show for it, while star striker Moussa Dembele struggled to have any impact throughout the game.

Griffiths winner means that the Scotland international has now scored five times in 11 league matches this season. Celtic will need all of his prowess next week as they travel to PSG on Wednesday for their penultimate Champions League group game, having been humbled 5-0 by Neymar and co. in the reverse fixture last September.
