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 Kyogo 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.


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.

Kyogo gives Celtic an early lead against Dundee United

Adrift at the bottom of the table with one point from four games, and unaware of what was about to come, Dundee United made a strong start at Tannadice – where Celtic secured a 10th title in 11 seasons after a 1-1 draw in May – with Joe Hart forced into a brilliant save inside two minutes.
