IT was another day of celebration in Paradise yesterday as Celtic won their FIFTIETH Scottish League crown.
Neil Lennon’s men overcame Hearts 2-1 to make sure of the Hoops’ eighth successive title during a spectacular period of domination in domestic football.
The team are now a mere 90 minutes from making awe-inspiring history with an achievement which will surely never be broken – the stupendous feat of the treble treble, nine pieces of silverware in a row.
The Parkhead outfit also have their eyes on making it a hat-trick of Scottish Cup triumphs – remarkably something they have never managed before in their illustious adventures in the national competition.
Two seasons ago, Wizard of Oz Tom Rogic waltzed through the Aberdeen defence to slide a late winner beyond keeper Joe Lewis and last term two first-half efforts from Callum McGregor and Oliver Ntcham were good enough to shoot down Motherwell’s resistance.
Now Craig Levein’s Tynecastle side stand between the holders and a breathtaking unprecedented feat.
But, as was proved on and off the field yesterday, Celtic are smiles better.
