That's all for today folks. Celtic march on at the top and Dundee lift themselves off the bottom.

We'll have that one covered on BBC Radio Scotland and the BBC Sport website. Make sure you join us for the noon kick-off in Dingwall.

Enjoy Bonfire Night and stay safe...

Griffths happy to play anywhere

FT: Celtic 3-0 Inverness CT

Leigh Griffiths says he's "knackered" after playing a rare full game for Celtic this season.

"It's good to get 90 minutes under my belt. I thought I linked up well with Moussa [Dembele] at times. Playing deeper was an unfamiliar role for me but I was delighted to be in the starting line-up - I'll play left-back, anywhere.

"Overall today I wasn't the greatest but I still scored, and as a striker you take that."

Asked if his ninth goal of the season will be enough to earn a start for Scotland against England at Wembley on Friday, the striker added: "Probably not but that's up to Mr Strachan and what he wants to do. I will try to train well all week and if he wants me in in the team, great. If not, I'll sit on the bench and try to have an impact if I get on. 

"I've not been playing as much as I'd like but the only way I can change the gaffer's mind here and with Scotland is to come on and score as many goals as I can.

"I am delighted to pull on a Scotland jersey any time I can. It is one of those games [against England] you want to be involved in. I've no doubt we have the players that can cause them problems. We still have belief we can go down there and get a result."

Rodgers' adjustments eventually pay off

FT: Celtic 3-0 Inverness CT

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers switched to three at the back against Caley Thistle and bemoaned an early injury to defender Mikael Lustig.

"We were hurt in our rhythm when Mika went off," he tells BBC Radio Scotland. "The idea was to put Stuart Armstrong back to play on that side.

"Inverness are a difficult team to play against and our game plan was disrupted.  

"We adjusted it at half time and, within a matter of minutes, we scored the goal and, from there, we were dominant in the second half. 

"It was very pleasing after four games when we have been travelling."

No details on Brown injury

FT: Celtic 3-0 Inverness CT

So how is Scott Brown after he came off midway through the second half? Will he be fit to face England next weekend?

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers tells BBC Radio Scotland that he hasn't spoken to his skipper, or Mikael Lustig, who went off early with an ankle problem.

"When those guys come off it must be something that's pretty sore, so we'll have to assess that," says the Celtic boss.

'Fear factor' is back at Celtic

FT: Celtic 3-0 Inverness CT

Can anyone stop Celtic this season? Brendan Rodgers' side are now 10 points clear at the top of the Premiership following another comfortable victory.

Inverness Caley Thistle boss Richie Foran was certainly impressed by the hosts, less so by some of his own staff.

"We didn't lose the game today," he said. "We lost it last week when we started thinking about playing here. 

"Celtic Park used to have that fear factor and Brendan Rodgers seemed to have got that again, because we played with fear today. 

"This game was lost before it started. We have been on a good run, but a few of them didn't believe in themselves today."

"If you haven't got belief in football, you're in trouble.

"Celtic are a fantastic side. They outplayed us."

BBC Sport Scotland at Celtic Park

After a pretty stodgy first half, Celtic simply blew the visitors away in the second.

Some fabulous periods of play from the champions, who are looking ever more unstoppable in Scotland.

A few injury concerns but another good day at the office for Brendan Rodgers' side.

First league win for Edinburgh City

FULL-TIME Dundee 2-0 Motherwell

Back-to-back wins for Dundee lifts them off the foot of the table. Motherwell will not be happy after the officials missed what appeared a clear goal when the game was goalless. That's going to be a big talking point over the weekend.

The Dark Blues could find themselves back at the bottom if Ross County arrest their run of poor form and beat Rangers in Dingwall tomorrow.

FULL-TIME Hearts 2-2 St Johnstone

These teams just can't be separated as they remain neck and neck in the Premiership on 19 points. Aberdeen will be pleased since they stay in second place.

Brown's day over for Celtic

Celtic 1-0 Inverness CT
