Celtic Seals 6th Scottish Premiership Title

Make it six in a row for Celtic! The Hoops unleashed a dazzling display to highlight another smashing season by trouncing Hearts 5-0 at Tynecastle Stadium on Sunday.

And just like that, Brendan Rogers’ men notched their sixth consecutive Scottish Premiership title and 48th overall with eight games to spare.

After Aberdeen rolled past Dundee last Friday, Celtic needed three points against fifth-placed Hearts to seal the deal.
They did not disappoint.

A hat-trick from winger Scott Sinclair (24th minute, 27th and 84th) and goals from midfielders Stuart Armstrong (55th) and Patrick Roberts (61st) shoved Celtic to the dominating victory, continuing their unbeaten run that saw them yielding just four points so far.

If they go on with their incredible streak, Celtic could become the first team to go a full 38-game Scottish Premiership campaign without tasting defeat.
Another record that may be broken is their own points record (103 points) if they tally 18 points from their remaining games.

Rodgers, the former Liverpool manager hired in 2016 to replace Ronny Deila, previously said he wanted to win for the squad in the best way possible.
His vision came into fruition, doing it like someone who can see things turn up right for his team.

“We have had many outstanding performances, but we have only just begun because there’s still an awful lot of development in this team. That’s the real exciting part,’’ he said after the match.

The road for Celtic to claim a domestic treble remains well paved. They have defeated Aberdeen in November to win the League Cup, while they clash with rivals Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-finals later this month.

It was in 2000-01 that Celtic won all three major Scottish domestic trophies in one season.

That feat has only been achieved once since — when Rangers completed a treble in 2002-03.
