MORITZ JENZ says it was a dream come true to score on his Celtic debut as he lapped up his side’s celebrations with their huge travelling support in Dingwall.

The German defender headed a crucial second goal for Celtic with just six minutes to go after Ross County’s Alex Iacovitti had cancelled out Kyogo’s opener for the visitors.

Liel Abada went on to score a third in stoppage time, capping off the perfect day for Jenz as he made his bow in Scottish football.

“It wasn’t a bad debut,” Jenz said. “It was amazing to play my first game in front of a fantastic away crowd. Then to score was like a dream come true.

“We knew at 1-1 we had to win the game so I wanted to get in there and score the goal. In the end, it happened.

“You always hope to get on the end of the ball and I timed it well. I showed real desire to score the goal.

“Of course, you must have a good relationship with the fans because they back you up even in difficult moments. Today was difficult, we were pushed to the end, and they helped us.

“It was incredible to celebrate with them at the goal. I’ve always wanted to score in a British game and run into the crowd. There’s no stopping, you just run in with your emotions. It was amazing. It took some time to get out but I did”

Jenz now has his sights set on a regular place in the heart of the Celtic defence. Stephen Welsh missed this game through illness to hand him his opportunity, while Carl Starfelt was back on the bench following a hamstring injury.

“I need to continue to train hard and if I get the chance to play give my best,” he said.

“We all push each other to reach the highest level possible.

“It’s a team game. I’ll keep pushing and the coach will decide who plays.

“I’m looking forward to keep playing like that. I want to be confident and consistent this season.”
