Celtic defeated Dundee United 5-0 earlier today.

Celtic cruised to victory in the Scottish Premiership this weekend, claiming a comfortable 5-0 triumph over rivals Dundee United.

Goals from Leigh Griffiths, Dedryck Boyata a Kris Commons brace and an own goal from Reading loanee Aaron Kuhl gave Celtic a resounding victory to keep put them four points clear of Aberdeen in the table - after they drew 1-1 with Motherwell yesterday.

It was a day of celebration for The Bhoys who certainly seemed to enjoy their procession of a victory at Celtic Park.

But it was also a day to say hellp to the club's most recent new signing. Celtic finally agreed a deal with former West Ham striker Carlton Cole this week - with the free agent striker arriving on a two-year deal.

He was not considered for this fixture as Celtic continue to build up his fitness but he did get a full presentation to his new fans who is hopeful will have the same admiration for him the West Ham faithful did before his exit this summer.

With Cole, Griffiths and Nadir Ciftci in the attacking options there is no doubt that Celtic are now better stocked to go all the way domestically, and give the continent a crack as well in the Europa League.
