GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -- Celtic won the Scottish League Cup for the 15th time by beating 10-man Dundee United 2-0 in the final on Sunday.
Kris Commons scored in the 28th minute and James Forrest added a second in the 79th to put Celtic on course for a league-and-cup double. The team is three points clear with a game in hand in its Scottish Premiership title defense.
United had captain Sean Dillon sent off in the 56th for a reckless challenge on Emilio Izaguirre to make its task even harder at Hampden Park.
Celtic's margin of victory should have been bigger, but Forrest missed a late penalty.
