Moussa Dembele has claimed that Celtic’s win against Ross County was not as comfortable as the scoreline suggested.
Brendan Rodgers’ side secured a 4-0 win on Wednesday night, with Dembele coming off the bench to score his 15th goal of the season in as many starts.
However, the French wonderkid posted on his personal Twitter account that he believes the game should have been wrapped up earlier, as Celtic scored three in the last 10 minutes.
Nice 3 pts away from home again 😊. It took time to secure them but we did it 😎. Big thanks to the fans that came to supports us @celticfc 💚🍀

The Hoops took the lead in the first three minutes thanks to Manchester City loanee Patrick Roberts, after Rodgers decided to rotate his squad by making eight changes to his side.
Celtic’s number 10 was then introduced in the 58th minute, as Rodgers looked to close out the game at Victoria Park.
Midfielder Stuart Armstrong continued his claim for a first-team slot by doubling Celtic’s lead in the 83rd minute, before substitutes Scott Sinclair and Dembele got themselves on the scoresheet in the dying moments.
Former Fulham attacker has continued to wow spectators in the green and white of the 47-time Champions, as onlookers such as Real Madrid boss and fellow countryman Zinedine Zidane continue to sing his praises.
Seven points clear at the top of the Premiership and with a game in hand, Rodgers men will be looking to extenuate that lead this weekend.
They take on potential title challengers Aberdeen in Saturday’s early kick off, with the chance to move 10 points clear of their rivals if other results go their way.
In other Celtic news, Rodgers has concerns over this attacker despite starring in the 4-0 win.
