SCOTT BROWN admitted Celtic “let themselves down” in the 1-0 home loss against Aberdeen – but insisted winning the title for the seventh successive time just gets sweeter.
The Hoops skipper said; “Every year it gets more special and more emotional, especially doing seven in a row.
“It’s amazing, to be perfectly honest.
“We let ourselves down a little bit this afternoon, but at the end of the day we’d already won the title.
“It was always going to be hard to do the exact same as we did last season, but we keep winning trophies and we have one more we need to do. We need to make sure we win it.
“We’ve played 60 games so far this season and we keep pushing at this level.
“Those big games and big occasions, we need to make sure we turn up and we have done in the past.”
Brendan Rodgers said: “It’s the bigger picture for us and I can’t forget the work the players have done – you enter a league to win it and they have done that. I’m delighted.
“In my first season, we won it in the best way we possibly could. We didn’t quite match that this year, but in the big games, the players have produced and it’s great credit to them.
“It’s important to celebrate today, but we focus on the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell next week and, hopefully, we can finish off a remarkable season.
“There were lots of performances – the recent game against Rangers will live long in the memory as it capped off a great campaign for us.”
Kieran Tierney added: “Being a lifelong Celtic supporter, to celebrate in front of the fans is a dream come true for me.
“It’s been a great season and I’m delighted. There are no words to describe it, I’m so grateful to every single fan for the support they have given me and I try my best to repay it.”
