CELTIC left back Greg Taylor has admitted he is blanking out any thoughts of a prospective Scottish title decider against Rangers at Parkhead next month so he can focus fully on Ross County.

Taylor and his team mates can move closer to the cinch Premiership trophy if they defeat County in a league game in Dingwall tomorrow.

The Scotland defender can remember how it took a strike from Tony Ralston deep into injury-time for the Parkhead club to triumph on their last visit to the Global Energy Stadium back in December.

He stressed that all of Ange Postecoglou’s players are unconcerned about the final Old Firm game of the season on May 1.

“We know the next game is the most important and the gaffer doesn’t let us look beyond that,” he said. “We do all our prep for Sunday. We need to put on a big performance.

“Once that is done we will look to the next one. We’ve managed to keep focus because we’ve only looked at the next game. Each game in the league is worth the same, so why would we be looking to the next one? Ross County is the most important and the most valuable right now.”

Taylor added: “I was on the bench when Tony managed to get the late winner. It was amazing. It was a relief, of course, because when it’s that late you don’t know if you are going to get the three points.

“I thought it was deserved though as we performed relatively well, even with 10 men. But when it hit the net it was a huge moment for us all. It felt like a big moment in the season. That’s what you need to do over the course of the season.

“We have five big games to go so we can’t talk about whether it was a big moment in the context of the season.

“We don’t treat any games like a stroll as we know how hard it is to win. Equally we try to improve in every training session and every game.

“Ross County are a tough team to play against, especially at home. I’ve seen a stat saying they've not lost in Dingwall since we were last up there, so that shows how well they have done and how difficult it will be.”

Taylor put Celtic ahead against Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final last Sunday when he scored just his second goal for the Parkhead club in the second-half.

He was devastated when his side were beaten 2-1 after extra-time by their rivals – but he is only thinking about wrapping up the Premiership now.

“It still hurts,” he said. “In a cup competition you don’t get any second chances. We knew it was a big occasion and we are realistic enough to say we probably didn’t do enough on the day.

“We have analysed the performance rather than the result and moved on to Sunday. We are ready to go.

“It’s the business end of the season and there are five massive games left in the league. That’s the focus now. We know the next one is the most important and we will be trying to get the three points we need.”
