Today at Tannadice Celtic put in another impressive display, playing the Celtic way – with no shortage of skill in a passing game and pulling off a 3-1 victory when they could have won by more.
Celtic restored their five-point lead in the Scottish Premier League after ending Dundee United’s 11-game unbeaten run with a display of power and poise.
The visitors broke the deadlock when Anthony Stokes’ low drive deflected in off the heel of hapless Garry Kenneth.
That came on 16 minutes and, after another 20, it was Shaun Dillon’s turn to deflect in a Mark Wilson shot.
David Goodwillie swept in United’s reply after 64 minutes, but Daniel Majstorovic headed in 15 minutes later.
Celtic’s victory not only meant that they completed their 16th game without defeat but restored the gap over reigning champions Rangers, who have two games in hand and thrashed Motherwell on Saturday.
After today’s game Neil Lennon said: “We were fantastic today. In the first half we were particularly impressive.
“No disrespect to Dundee United but we should have scored a few more – and particularly on the counter-attack we could have picked them off a bit more.
“That was big big win for us today.”
Hoops fans will now look forward to next Sunday’s Old Firm clash at Celtic Park.
If Celtic continue to play the way they have done, there is every confidence that they can go on and win.
