Overwhelming defeat (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rout

'overwhelming defeat' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for rout that I've seen before include "Disastrous defeat" , "Overwhelmingly defeat" , "Put to flight on tour" , "Put to flight, disperse" , "Completely defeat" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror, the Evening Standard, The Telegraph and the Sydney Morning Herald.
