If the average Rangers fan was jubilant at the end of the last footballing weekend, spare a thought for Ross County striker Jordan White and his beaming dad.
A boyhood bluenose from a family of bluenoses, the striker showed expert movement inside the Celtic box to lose Diego Laxalt and embarrass Scott Brown to nod home the winner in Dingwall.
Jordan White's second-half header saw struggling Ross County beat Celtic 1-0 as the champions' grip on the Scottish Premiership title all but evaporated in the Highlands.

It was the only goal of the game in Ross County’s 1-0 win over Celtic with the Gers now within seven points of the title and on track to be crowned Champions at Celtic Park.
It’s an unthinkable reality for our rivals and whilst Jordan White might not have donned his favourite light blue with Rangers he’s made a telling contribution to the season in the dark blue of the Staggies.
It’ll be a moment which White never forgets and one which also had added significance to the player’s family.
Jordan’s father Billy White took to Twitter to applaud his son with a message which shows just how much it means to the striker and those closest to him.

“Jordan, you have made your dad, your mother, brother and your sister and everybody who knows you and all Ross County fans and all Rangers fans so happy tonight, so proud of you,” reads Billy’s tweet [Twitter].
The striker himself is well aware of how much the goal meant to his family as he acknowledged this at the end of the game.
“I’ve got a lot of happy people in my family,” said White [Glasgow Times]. “I grew up that way and it is what it is.”
Rangers fans were touched by his father’s message and paid tribute to White for netting the winner against our arch-rivals:

White wasn’t the only one who was ecstatic after the victory over Ross County, with one Gers player even getting involved in the post-match.
According to County boss John Hughes, a leading Ibrox star text him his gracious thank-yous in the aftermath of the result in the Highlands.
