Match Report

This was definitely not a case of saving the best for last as Scandinavian-less United suffered their heaviest defeat in what was undoubtedly the poorest performance of the season!

Cadete danced his way through the Tannadice rearguard on the end of a Thom through ball to open the scoring. The match was blighted by end of season syndrome although United did open the second period more positively with a Mark Perry shot slipping out of Marshall's hands and on to the bar but over.

Thereafter, the action cooled and two late strikes - a lob by Chris Hay from 20 yards and a header from Tommy Johnson gave Celtic's winning margin a flattering appearance.
