Celtic reaf­firmed their do­mes­tic dom­i­nance with a crush­ing 4-0 Premier­ship tri­umph over Ross County.

Bren­dan Rodgers’ side – thrashed 5-0 at home by Paris Saint- Ger­main in their Cham­pi­ons League opener on Tues­day – looked more at ease yes­ter­day, and Aus­tralia mid­fielder Tom Rogic drove them ahead in the 13th minute.

Moussa Dem­bele – back af­ter a ham­string in­jury which had kept him out since July – fired in the sec­ond goal three min­utes be­fore the break and winger James For­rest added two more in the sec­ond half to ex­tend the tre­ble win­ners’ un­beaten do­mes­tic run to 55 games.

Sec­ond-placed Aberdeen re­mained un­beaten in the league but were held to a dis­ap­point­ing 1-1 home draw against Kil­marnock.

Rangers had also lost ground on lead­ers Celtic in a 2-2 draw against 10-man Partick This­tle on Fri­day night.

Dundee got their sea­son up and run­ning as Ajay Leitch-Smith’s first two goals for the club earned a 3-2 win over St John­stone.

Louis Moult hit a dou­ble as Motherwell came from two down to seal a 2-2 draw at Hiber­nian, while Hearts were forced to dig deep to claim their first win since Craig Levein’s re­turn as boss with a 2-1 tri­umph at a dogged Hamil­ton.
