Celtic have secured a sixth successive league title with a thumping 5-0 victory over Hearts at Tynecastle. It’s an incredible achievement, especially when you consider that up to this point they have gone the entire domestic season unbeaten.

Goals from Scott Sinclair, Stuart Armstrong and Patrick Roberts sealed the victory. Sinclair was in especially good form, scoring his first hat-trick since arriving in Scottish football.
If there were any thoughts of a struggle to get over the line, those were blown away in short order after the English winger scored two in two minutes halfway through the first half.
In the second half Celtic got even better, scoring two superb goals and a penalty to give supporters all around the world a very memorable day.
Confidence is so high at the club right now that supporters believe that the Hoops will go on to win an unprecedented 10 league titles in a row, making Scottish football history by surpassing their own record total in the 60s and 70s that was equalled by Rangers in the 80s and 90s.
They took to Twitter to celebrate a momentous day in the history of the club…

Celtic officially champs. A superb season made more extraordinary by the redemption of players that failed under Deila

5-0 away from home. That, quite simply, is how you win the league. Great entertainment from Celtic.
