Invincible! Celtic complete unbeaten Premiership season

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic beat Hearts 2-0 on the last day of the season to complete an unbeaten run, with a record 34 wins, 4 draws and zero losses.

Goals from Leigh Griffiths and Stuart Armstrong secured the home win for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who were afterwards presented with the league trophy at the Celtic Park.

Celtic become the first team to go an entire Scottish top-flight season unbeaten since Rangers in 1898-99, and they join England’s Arsenal (2003-04) and Juventus (2011-12) in being unbeaten over a 38-game league season.

“The group have worked so hard for all the records they have broken and they thoroughly deserve it,” Celtic Boss Brendan Rodgers remarked after the game.

“You come in and plan to win. However, to perform like we’ve done is truly remarkable. The club is very much together as one.

“It’s an incredible achievement. I am a Celtic supporter so I know what it feels like. The fans’ enjoyment is the most important thing for me and I think they have a good feeling.”
