PARTICK TH 1 CELTIC  5 (March 26, 2014)

CELTIC completed the hat-trick of crowns with an impressive runaway success over the Jags at Firhill with Neil Lennon preparing to round off his first managerial stint at the Hoops before leaving the post in the summer.

An early header from Anthony Stokes got the ball rolling before teenage substitute Liam Henderson claimed his first goal for the club four minutes after the turnaround with a slick effort that brought some extra cheers from the travelling contingent.

Norwegian midfielder Stefan Johansen, who had been outstanding throughout the campaign, added a third and the Hoops responded to losing an 85th-minute goal to Christie Elliott by scoring another two through Stokes and Kris Commons before the curtain came down on another successful quest for the title.
