Joe Hart: The former England No.1 was a total spectator for the whole of the opening period and watched a couple of crosses flash across the face of his six-yard box in the opening period. The stopper brilliantly kept his concentration levels to keep out Dominic Samuel's header from point-blank range with a fine diving save and ended the contest with the captain's armband. 8

Josip Juranovic: The Croatian full-back came in for Anthony Ralston for his second consecutive game after starting at Ibrox and he really looks the part. He is a solid, committed and accomplished defender and he does exactly what it says on the tin. Juranovic has settled instantly into the club and the supporters appear to have taken to him as well. 7

Cameron Carter-Vickers: The Tottenham defender enjoyed a successful loan spell at Bournemouth last season and he was handed a surprise debut at the expense of Stephen Welsh. He is an imposing, physical unit. He cut a commanding figure and looked every inch a centre-half. Crucially fired in the first goal via a wicked deflection and he will certainly claim it. 8

Carl Starfelt: The Swedish international arguably enjoyed his best game in a Celtic jersey at Ibrox and is fast getting to grips with the demands of the Scottish game. He looked very comfortable alongside Carter-Vickers at the heart of the defence. He dove-tailed neatly with the debutant and Celtic didn't look in any bother all afternoon. 7

Greg Taylor: The Scotland star returned to first-team duty and he linked up fantastically well with debutant Jota in the opening 45. The inverted full-back enjoyed marauding forward at will and he performed his defensive duties whenever he was called upon. Sadly he was replaced by Adam Montgomery after 48 minutes when he suffered a recurrence of his shoulder injury. 5

Callum McGregor: The skipper is just such an inspirational figure in the midfield and it was his superb pass from a clinical counterattack that put Ajeti in on goal. He was replaced by Soro on 67 minutes clearly with the midweek Europa League clash with Real Betis in mind. 6

David Turnbull: The midfielder notched a hat-trick during his last Paradise outing and he almost opened the scoring on 26 minutes when he fired into the side-netting from 25 yards. He looked very pedestrian at times in getting the ball into the forward areas. Went down with a face knock midway through the second half but recovered well enough. 5

Liel Abada: The Israeli winger forced the County goalkeeper into a fine tip onto the crossbar on 20 minutes when it looked easier to score. The teenager has started his Celtic career very brightly with four goals already and he cracked the woodwork with another effort after 37 minutes before sliding a further chance into the side-netting. He cleverly picked out Ajeti for the clincher with 20 minutes to go. 7

Tom Rogic: The Aussie returned to the starting line-up after being axed for the Ibrox clash. It was his exquisite pass that released Abada for his effort on goal in the first half. He cut a lackadaisical figure at times and his close control and passing could have been much better. Another who looked sluggish in the engine room and was replaced by James McCarthy on 77 minutes. 5

Jota: The Portuguese winger excited the Celtic supporters most and the debutant smashed in an effort after just three minutes. He cracked another one wide in the first 45 and slashed another past the post after the interval. He possesses a full range of skills and is clearly a player with creative gifts. He will be a major asset to Celtic on the left flank moving forward especially if his end product improves. 7

Albian Ajeti: The Swiss striker was handed the huge responsibility of leading the line in the absence of Kyogo. He fluffed his lines miserably when presented with a glorious one-on-one opportunity on 23 minutes when he shot tamely into Laidlaw's hands. The former West Ham striker made amends when he headed home Abada's cross on 70 minutes for the clincher and was in the right place at the right time to nod a second with five minutes left to make it 3-0. 7


Adam Montgomery: The youngster replaced the unfortunate Greg Taylor on 48 minutes and was deployed in defence. The Scotland under-21 star deputised well for the full Scotland international and can be pleased enough with his second-half contribution. 5

Ismalia Soro: Came on to replace the skipper with a quarter of the game left. 3

James McCarthy: The Republic of Ireland internationalist was given a 13-minute run-out when he replaced Tom Rogic and was denied his first Celtic goal when Laidlaw palmed his header onto the crossbar but Ajeti converted the rebound.
