Celtic became the second top-flight British club to record a 9-0 victory over the weekend, emulating Liverpool’s victory over Bournemouth with an incredible triumph by the same scoreline at Dundee United on Sunday.
Liverpool picked up their first win of the Premier League season in a one-sided game at Anfield on Saturday, equaling the record for the biggest win in the competition’s history.
But Celtic managed to score nine away goals on Sunday in a devastating display at Tannadice.

Japan striker Kyogo Furuhashi opened the scoring after a quarter of an hour and scored Celtic’s first three goals, completing his hat-trick in first-half stoppage time.
Portugal winger Jota then added another in the sixth minute of injury time at the end of the opening period to give the Scottish champions a decisive lead at the break.
And there was another hat-trick in the second half as Israeli striker Liel Abada served three goals, with Croatian right-back Josip Juranovic in between.
Sweden defender Carl Starfelt completed the rout after 81 minutes as Dundee United – like Bournemouth on Saturday – avoided the ignominy of conceding double figures.
Celtic are two points clear of rivals Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership, with five wins from five. Dundee United are bottom with just one point.
