KIERAN TIERNEY is delighted Celtic turned in a masterclass as they lifted their seventh successive Premiership title at the weekend.
The Hoops were disappointed to lose 2-1 to Neil Lennon’s fired-up Hibs at Easter Road the previous week.
But they returned to the dazzling brand of play that has seen them win all five of the trophies that have been up for grabs since Brendan Rodgers arrived as manager in May 2016.
Odsonne Edouard (2), James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor piled five efforts behind the heroic Jak Alnwick in Graeme Murty’s last game in charge of the struggling Ibrox side.
The Scotland international defender said: “Winning the way we did was the perfect manner in which to clinch the league title.
“We were disappointed with the result last week, so to bounce back and win in style like that in front of all your fans in a derby match is brilliant.
“It’s another wee bit of history for us, as well. That’s seven in a row and it’s something we can be very proud of.
“t was a great day all over. I think every Celtic fan visualises doing something like this and I’m just lucky enough to live it for them all. I’m making the most of it and enjoying every second.
“We went out and we were so clinical. Right from the start we just dominated. We don’t allow the pressure in games to affect us.
“We think about what can happen if we win. We always look to play our way and if we turn up and do that, we’ll win.”
