Not content to simply level the Celtic legend’s tally of 158, he ended the match having taken his own tally to 160 goals in Scottish football’s top flight.

Damien Casalinuovo pulled a goal back for United and Steven Whittaker and Madjid Bougherra were also on the scoresheet but the night belonged to Boyd, with new Scotland boss Craig Levein given plenty of food for thought in the stands.

The Scottish champions now boast a seven point lead at the summit ahead of Sunday’s Old Firm derby, with the only sour point a red card for Kenny Miller which rules him out of the clash with the Hoops.
