Dreary Dundee United was ripped apart by Celtic as Kyogo and Liel Abada’s hattricks made it five damaging defeats on the spin for Jack Ross.

It took just ten minutes for the visitors to open the scoring and it was an incisive counter as Liel Abada played in Jota, who picked out Kyogo at the far post for his first.

His second was a stunner as Matt O’Riley laid him off before curling it into the top corner, and just moments later he had yet another Celtic treble when he converted Abada’s cross for his sixth goal of the season.

After that, the goals just kept on flowing. Jota added a fourth and Abada hit a second-half treble to pinch the player of the match award from his Japanese compatriot.

Carl Starfelt and Josip Juranovic also chipped in as the Hoops picked up their biggest win in more than a decade.

For United, it’s now 24 goals conceded in five games as they sit bottom of the Premiership table.

Jack Ross admits he’s “humiliated and embarrassed” by Dundee United’s thumping defeat to Celtic at Tannadice.

But he’s ruled out any reactionary signings in the days ahead – insisting he’ll get the best out of his current squad yet.

Both sides are in midweek League Cup action as the competition reaches the last 16. United travel to Livingston, while Celtic travel north to Ross County
