CELTIC are just one win away from being crowned Premiership champions for the second successive season.

Aberdeen overcame their nearest challengers, Michael Beale’s Ibrox side, 2-0 at Pittodrie this afternoon with on-loan Celt Liam Scales getting the opening goal.

Bojan Miovski headed a second in the 56th minute to leave the Govan team shattered. The defeat maintained the Hoops’ 13-point advantage.

The five fixtures will be announced tomorrow for the post-split schedule and Ange Postecoglou’s men will go into the opening encounter knowing that a win will ensure the title.

EYE EYE…Ange Postecoglou is one league win away from a second successive Premiership title.

The Ibrox side can only now achieve a maximum of 15 points and a win for the Bhoys will give them a 16-point lead.

The champions drew 1-1 with Motherwell at Parkhead yesterday and the Ibrox side travelled to the north east knowing a win could stall the title celebrations in the east end of Glasgow.

However, the Govan club were sent into a nosedive shortly after the interval when Republic of Ireland international Scales intercepted a pass from James Tavernier, spotted Allan McGregor off his line and flighted a 35-yard angled effort high into the net.

It was all over for Beale and Co when Miovski dived to send a Leighton Clarkson cross behind the veteran keeper.

And Celtic can pile on the misery when they face the Ibrox club in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden a week today.
