Match Report

An encouraging start was halted in its tracks when a sublime reverse pass by
Moravcik released Hartson and the
Welshman went through to steer
the ball into the far corner. Then in first half injury time Balde nodded in
the second from Mjallbys header across
goal. There was really no return from that point and Hartson profited from a handy Larsson assist to blast in a third from almost point-blank range. The one Tannadice crumb of comfort came when Jim McIntyre directed a header from Danny Griffin's cross in off
the far post with his head from 12 yards. That followed a brief spell of United pressure, but Celtic immediately hit back, adding two more. First, Hartson rammed in his hat-trick after
Agathe prised the ball away from the feet of David Partridge and Maloney completed the misery, tucking the ball under Gallacher after being released by Hartson just inside the United half.
