Dundee Utd 0-9 Celtic: Kyogo Furuhashi, Liel Abada score hat-tricks as Bhoys secure biggest league win for 12 years

Kyogo Furuhashi and Liel Abada each scored a hat-trick as Celtic inflicted a demoralising 9-0 defeat on Dundee United at Tannadice.

The Bhoys last won by a nine-goal margin against Aberdeen in the 2010/11 campaign, with the crushing victory just two shy of the club-record 11-0 win, which was set all the way back in 1985.

Japan international Furuhashi got the ball rolling after 15 minutes and added two more – including a 20-yard beauty – before the break, by which point Ange Postecoglou’s men were 4-0 up as Jota also got in on the act.

Celtic go 9-0 up as Carl Starfelt heads in from a corner

The lively Abada scored a treble of his own in just 27 second-half minutes, with one from defender Josip Juranovic sandwiched in between, before Carl Starfelt added the gloss to an exceptional attacking performance when he headed in a corner from David Turnbull.

Jack Ross’ Dundee United – who lost 7-0 to AZ Alkmaar in Europa Conference League qualifying earlier this month – remain rock bottom of the Scottish Premiership with just a point to their name, having conceded 18 in just five league games.

Celtic, meanwhile, leapfrog Rangers back into top spot ahead of next week’s Old Firm showdown.
