5 things we learned from the Ladbrokes Premiership

Champions Celtic moved back to the top of the table in the fifth weekend of the campaign.

5 things we learned from the Ladbrokes Premiership
1. Craig Levein has already made a difference

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes admitted he was happy to escape Murrayfield with a point as his side lost their 100 per cent record against a Hearts team playing their first game under new management. Levein knows all about his players from his role as director of football and only some superb goalkeeping from Joe Lewis denied him three points on his return to the dugout. Ian Cathro suffered three defeats against Aberdeen during his brief spell in charge and the vastly superior experience of Levein was evident on the park.

2. Ross County’s title-winners are stepping up

Davis Keillor-Dunn, one of the key players in County’s Development League winning side, claimed a man-of-the-match award and praise from manager Jim McIntyre following his first start for the club. The 19-year-old wide player had two opportunities himself and laid on several others for team-mates in a lively first half, and looks set to feature heavily this season.

3. Celtic have another goalscorer

Odsonne Edoard marked his debut with a goal following his loan move from Paris St Germain as the champions won 4-1 at Hamilton on Friday night. With Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele both having had several spells out with muscle injuries over the past 12 months, the 19-year-old could make a significant contribution this season.

4. Alfredo Morelos is right to set his sights high

Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha revealed the Colombian striker was targeting 25 goals this season but he could be on his way to even more after taking his tally to seven goals in his last five matches. The 21-year-old former HJK Helsinki player netted a double in a 4-1 win against Dundee and looks set to lead the line on a long-term basis.

5. Allan Campbell has a bright future at Motherwell

The 19-year-old helped the Steelmen avoid the drop with some promising displays towards the end of last season but his first-team chances looked to have been limited by Stephen Robinson’s summer recruitment of midfielders such as Gael Bigirimana and Andy Rose. But Campbell was handed his first start of the season against Kilmarnock, following two impressive substitute appearances, and was arguably Motherwell’s most consistent performer throughout their third consecutive win. The midfielder won the ball ahead of Ryan Bowman’s opener and his energy drove his side on throughout their 2-0 victory.
