HEARTS 0 CELTIC 5 (April 2, 2017)
BRENDAN RODGERS sealed the club’s “Invincible” season in his debut campaign with a capital performance in Edinburgh.
The dominant force in the country performed with style and flourish as they pulverised their opponents with a ruthless display possessing a genuine cutting edge that shredded Craig Levein’s side who must have been relieved to hear the final whistle.
A spectacular Scott Sinclair hat-trick piloted the team to title No.6 with two of his goals arriving in three first-half minutes as the title kings turned on the turbo-chargers.
Midfielder Stuart Armstrong added a third and Patrick Roberts scored a wonderful fourth before Sinclair notched his third from the spot with
seven minutes remaining. The Hoops went on to capture domestic treble without losing a game in a captivating campaign to treasure.
TEAM: Gordon; Lustig (sub: Gamboa), Boyata (sub: Toure), Simunovic, Tierney; Brown, Armstrong; Forrest, McGregor, Roberts (Mackay-Steven); Sinclair.
