OWAIN FON WILLIAMS, the Inverness Caley Thistle goalkeeper, admitted the Highlanders “put themselves about a bit” in their 3-0 loss to runaway Premiership leaders Celtic at Paradise.
Scott Brown and Mikael Lustig both limped off during a bruising encounter that also saw the Jags’ Greg Tansey dismissed after picking up two yellow cards for blatant fouls on the Hoops skipper and Callum McGregor.cwkumd4xaaa-clg
Fon Williams said: “Celtic are a fantastic side and there’s no hiding that. We went down to 10 men and that made it very difficult.

“The last half-an-hour was tough because they are so strong, had the extra player and came at us wave after wave.

“We put ourselves about a bit because we wanted to get on the ball a bit more, but we weren’t good enough and we got punished.

“Celtic are the best team in Scottish football and we had to compete and prepare for a long afternoon. But with 10 men it became a constant attack.

“It’s tough, but we rolled up our sleeves and did our best to try to get something from the match, but it wasn’t good enough.”

Fon Williams, who was the Highlanders’ hero when they snatched a shock stoppage-time draw against the champions in September, is likely to get it a lot more easy this Saturday.

He is in the Welsh squad for the World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Cardiff, but is unlikely to feature for Chris Coleman’s side.
