Celtic regained their place at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership with a sizzling 6-0 rout of Ross County at Parkhead

Attacker Mohamed Elyounoussi fired the home side ahead from 16 yards in the fourth minute and the champions pummelled their opponents for the rest of the half but somehow failed to add to their lead.

However, four goals in 10 minutes at the start of the second half from Odsonne Edouard, midfielder Callum McGregor and a header from the French striker which went in off Staggies defender Liam Fontaine, blew away the Staggies.

Hoops winger James Forrest scooped in a fifth in the 54 minute with Elyounoussi making it six from close range in the 72nd minute to leave the men from Dingwall devastated.

The Hoops had taken only one point from their previous six before the international break to trail Old Firm rivals Rangers by two points but this was Neil Lennon's side back to their best, albeit Steven Gerrard's men get their chance to go back to the summit when they face Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.
