Celtic win but problems with Brendan Rodgers' team are clear

Celtic were nowhere near their best against Ross County but when have they been this season anyway. Brendan Rodgers' side had made a remarkable start to the game, scoring in the very first minute through Alistair Johnston. Naturally, fans would have been expecting and hoping for a few more goals from the Hoops but that proved to be the only one of the day. Luis Palma missed from the spot even after being handed a lifeline.

Of course, they got the three points, which is the most important thing. But the ineffectiveness in front of goal will worry the supporters for sure.

It is the same thing we saw in that run of five games late last year in which they managed to earn just seven points. The club cannot afford a repeat of that, if they are to win the league this season.

They might have lost both the Glasgow Derbies this season so far, but the Rangers have been very consistent since the arrival of Philippe Clement as manager. The same cannot be said about Celtic, who have never gotten it going in Rodgers' second spell.

Of course, fans have not been happy with the club's inactivity in the January transfer window. And those feelings will only grow after the performance against Ross County, who are second bottom in the league table right now.

There are still a few days left in the January transfer window. There do not seem to be any concrete rumours linking Celtic with any player at the moment though.

Coming into the month, a striker and a left-back were viewed as the minimum requirements by most. At the moment, they would probably be happy if any additions between now and the end of January.
