Leigh Griffiths came off the bench to score a brilliant curling free-kick and earn Celtic a 1-0 Scottish Premiership win at Ross County.

The striker was introduced on the hour mark and struck in the 77th minute as Celtic finally found a way past the stubborn Staggies and extended their unbeaten domestic run to 64 games.

Dead-ball specialist Griffiths bent a trademark effort beyond goalkeeper Aaron McCarey to send Brendan Rodgers' side into their Champions League clash against Paris St Germain in France on Wednesday night on a winning note.
