Liam Scales scored his first Celtic goal in an emphatic 3-0 victory over Dundee United.

The former Shamrock Rovers defender showed composure to net late on as Celtic recorded a fifth consecutive away victory in the cinch Premiership to cut the gap on leaders Rangers to four points.

Postecoglou was forced into three changes after Jota, Stephen Welsh and Anthony Ralston picked up injuries against Hearts in midweek.

The Portuguese winger is the biggest cause for concern with Postecoglou revealing before the game the loan player would be out for a 'few weeks'.
