CELTIC'S SEVEN GOALS.
Celtic had an easy victory over Dundee United at Parkhead, winning as they liked by seven goals to nothing.
Celtic opened the scoring through Scarff three minutes after the start, and the same player added another a couple of minutes later. This went far to discourage the United, and when, nine minutes later, Hughes finished a Scarff effort by scoring Celtic's third, it looked all up for Dundee.
Worse was to follow two minutes afterwards when Scarff, finding himself covered, passed the ball back to Napier, who scored the best goal of the match.
The visitors' cup of bitterness was full to overflowing when Scarff completed his "hat trick" by scoring his third and his team's fifth-goal within seventeen minutes.
Celtic practically did what they liked after this, and any promise the United showed was easily stopped by a confident half-back line and a pair of resolute backs.
The home men were not over-anxious to increase their score, or at least so it appeared, as many easy chances to do so were thrown away, until, nineteen minutes from the end, Scarff further increased the lead. Four minutes from the final whistle A. Thomson completed the seven.
Dundee were a poor lot, only McHugh, Ross, and Haddow showing any fight, but all the winners did well, particularly Cook, their new back, whose kicking and tackling was of the highest order.
The attendance was 3,000.
