Dundee United went down to an early strike from Gary Hooper as Celtic came through with a narrow 1-0 victory at Tannadice.

The only goal of the contest arrived after only twelve minutes when Hooper received from James Forrest and clinically struck the ball across goal and into the bottom left-hand corner.

Forrest soon had another chance but could only fire straight at Dusan Pernis while Cha Du-Ri also shot wide for the visitors before the break.

The unchanged Terrors weren't really providing much in the way of of a threat in reply, although Jon Rankin's cross presented the opportunity for Robbie Neilson to head at Fraser Forster.

It didn't particularly change much following the interval and manager Peter Houston elected to throw on Lauri Dalla Valle and Stuart Armstrong for Scott Robertson and Gary Mackay-Steven in a bid to find a route back.

But although Willo Flood lifted a late attempt over it was really the visitors still appearing the more likely to extend their advantage and Forrest and substitute Ki Sung-Yueng both tried their luck before the end.

No disrespect guys, but this is a very poor United team! I can't make my mind up if it is a bad manager, board, coaching or just poor quality players. But it is a very long time since i remember such an insignificant Dundee Utd side. No two players appeared to be on the same wavelength.
