Keith Watson, Stuart Armstrong, Ryan Gauld and David Goodwillie all found the back of the net at a wet and windy Rugby Park where Reuben Gabriel was sent-off midway through the first half.

With an hour played, Watson broke the deadlock with a rising shot from close range thanks to Gary Mackay-Steven's assist.

United added a second on 74 when Armstrong found the bottom right-hand corner from eight yards.

Two minutes later Gauld made it 3-0 rolling the ball into an empty net after keeper Craig Samson had blocked Armstrong's initial shot before Kris Boyd headed a late consolation for the hosts from Rory McKeown's cross.

However, there was still time for Goodwillie to make it 21 goals in the last five matches for United in the first minute of injury time.

Earlier, Kilmarnock had suffered a major set-back in the 23rd minute when Gabriel left the action after collecting his second yellow card from referee Euan Norris for a brace of tackles on Armstrong.

In a goalless opening 45 minutes, Brian Graham conjured up the first shot of the game when his 12-yard effort was saved by Samson.

The same player missed again, after half-an-hour, when he headed narrowly off target from inside the box while Gauld also had a brace of strikes for the visitors.

But the game sprung to life after the break, with five goals in the final half-an-hour, to leave Kilmarnock with just one win over United in their last 17 meetings.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
