Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers lauded his side’s performance against Rangers as they thrashed the Ibrox side 5-0 to seal a seventh Premiership title in a row.
Speaking after the match, Rodgers beamed: “To get a performance like that to clinch the league is very satisfying. The league is tougher this year but it shows the level the players are at.
“We’re hungry and want to consistently win. The players are doing that and there’s a great mentality shown by the team.”
Defeat to Hibs last week sealed a nightmare scenario for the SPFL and Police Scotland as Celtic could win the title against Rangers and they duly delivered on what turned out to be a beautiful Sunday for the Celtic fans.
Rodgers added: “Last year against Hearts, we played very well, but today there was a lot of pressure and expectation on the game. We fought like tigers to get the ball back and the clean sheet is important.
“We should have had seven but we will take five. We scored five but it was probably going on seven or eight. Their keeper made some great saves.
“It was great tribute to the work of the players and the scrutiny that they are under. The performance was outstanding, if you think of what the players put into the game.”
Celtic are now one game away from winning a historic back to back treble, with Motherwell standing in their way at Hampden for next month’s Scottish Cup Final.
