Celtic did what was required as they saw off Dundee United Kris Commons played down his own contribution as Celtic moved back to within one point of Rangers after today's 4-1 home win over Dundee United. Gary Hooper's goal after 23 minutes gave Neil Lennon's side the interval lead and second-half goals from Beram Kayal, Commons again and Daryl Murphy sealed the win as United substitute Johnny Russell grabbed a consolation goal for the Taysiders. Commons, who joined Celtic from Nottingham Forest in January this year, said: "Being with these players week in week out helps me massively, I get more chances than before. We are disappointed we didn't keep a clean sheet, but we have a great set of lads at the back and if we keep four more clean sheets we have a great chance." Manager Lennon said: "I thought it could have been more than four, comfortably. There were some great performances from some individual players but the team as a whole was superb. We are possibly disappointed with the goal we conceded. But Daryl scored a great fourth goal and no-one deserves it more than him. We've got goals in the team."
