CALLUM McGREGOR and James Forrest were among the revellers who celebrated Celtic’s second successive title triumph following the 5-0 romp against Aberdeen.

The 29-year-old captain and the forward, 31, both experienced Scotland internationals, danced with joy at Parkhead among the likes of Alistair Johnston, Oh Hyeon-gyu, Sead Haksabanovic, Alexandro Bernabei and Tomoki Iwata who were experiencing the championing-winning feeling for the first time.

McGregor, who, as ever, led the team out against the Pittodrie outfit, played the entire match as he controlled the middle of the park while Forrest, who has toiled with injury issues this term, was introduced after the interval for Liel Abada.

BHOY OH BHOY…Callum McGregor and Greg Taylor celebrate Celtic’s League Cup success at Hampden in February. 

Amazingly, it was the evergreen winger’s eleventh winner’s medal in the Premiership and both seasoned Celts have 19 honours each in glittering careers up to this stage.

Now they are aiming to play their part in the club’s eighth domestic treble when Ange Postecoglou takes his players back to Hampden for the Scottish Cup Final against Inverness Caley Thistle on Saturday.

Left-back Greg Taylor is admitted admirer of his team-mates and he applauded their extraordinary achievements. The international defender enthused: “Unbelievable – two club legends in my eyes.

“The amount of honours they have, games they’ve played, their goals and assists, they’re both a credit to the club.

“You can see they love every moment of winning things for Celtic. Well done to them.

“I’ll do well if I can get to their level, to be honest. It’s some feat to reach.”

WING WONDER…James Forrest takes on Aberdeen’s Marley Watkins as Celtic win 5-0 – and the evergreen ace picks up his eleventh title medal.

Taylor, speaking to The Scotsman, added: “I don’t look that far ahead. I’m really grateful to have the opportunity to play for a club this size and however long that lasts I will try to take in every moment.

“It’d be crazy to get to their level. It’s so hard to win things in a football career, so for those guys to have won that amount is really unbelievable.

“It only gets more and more special every time. Every time, you learn to appreciate it that wee bit more, to take in the things you wish you did the last time.

“I’ll be appreciating every last second of playing for this club.”
