HOW THE LEAGUES WERE WON: PART 7

0

CELTIC 5 RANGERS 0 (April 29, 2018)

CELTIC clinched the Magnificent Seven in memorable fashion with a one-sided drubbing of the Ibrox side in the east end of Glasgow.

The unstoppable and irrepressible Odsonne Edouard scored a first-half double while constant menace James Forrest clipped in a third before the break. There was no hiding place for the visitors who looked as though would prefer to be anywhere else on the planet rather than Parkhead with the songs and anthems cascading around the stadium of the triumphant supporters.

Midfielders Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor added further goals to spark off the celebrations with three fixtures remaining. The visitors got off lightly as Brendan Rodgers’ team took their foot off the gas with 37 minutes still to play.

The Irishman’s side went on to beat Motherwell 2-0 with goals from McGregor and Olivier Ntcham in the Scottish Cup Final to lift an unprecedented double treble.

TEAM: Gordon; Lustig (sub: Hendry), Boyata, Ajer, Tierney; Brown, Ntcham; Forrest, Rogic (sub: Sinclair), McGregor; Edouard (sub: Griffiths).
