Celtic cruised to a 4-2 win over Dundee at Dens Park with Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota scoring doubles to hoist the Hoops into second spot behind Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table.
Ange Postecoglou’s side started on the front foot and broke the deadlock with just eight minutes on the clock when Anthony Ralston’s long-range attempt rebounded off the post into the path of Jota.
The visitors doubled their lead midway through the first half with the impressive Ralston – who registered three assists – collecting the ball on the overlap and dinking a high, hanging cross for Kyogo to rise among a host of Dundee defenders and head home.
Dundee struck back with a Danny Mullen header in an increasingly hectic half, but two quickfire Celtic goals after the break forged a three-goal advantage – with Lee Ashcroft’s 67th-minute goal for the hosts a mere consolation.How the teams lined up | Match stats
How the Hoops dominated
The game got under way after some Celtic fans disrupted both a Remembrance Sunday silence and the kick-off.
The silence – to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth service people in the two world wars and later conflicts – was not observed by a small section from the start.
The start was delayed after Celtic supporters threw dozens of tennis balls on the pitch in a protest over claims that the club is considering appointing Police Scotland assistant chief constable Bernard Higgins in a senior security role.
