DUNDEE UNITED 1 CELTIC 4
LEIGH GRIFFITHS took his Celtic goal haul to 51 with a double as the Hoops cruised to victory over troubled Dundee United at Tannadice.
Ronny Deila’s men are now six points ahead of Aberdeen at the top of the Premiership as they zero in on their fifth successive title success.
There was never any doubt about the outcome once Griffiths opened the scoring in the 21st minute.
Celtic, in fact, had three good opportunities before the prolific marksman struck once again to underline his worth to the team.
In the seventh minute, a superb cross from the rapidly-improving Keiran Tierney found Stuart Armstrong who first-timed a first-timed a vicious effort just off target.
