Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has urged his team-mates to confirm themselves as Scottish champions before concentrating on the Scottish Cup as they look to complete the treble.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have already won the League Cup after they beat Aberdeen 3-0 back in November.

Although they were dumped out of the Champions League at the group stages, Celtic have enjoyed a stunning season so far and they sit 25 points above Aberdeen in the league table.

The Hoops will be crowned Premiership champions on Friday night if Aberdeen lose to Dundeen at Dens Park.

Even if the Dons win, Celtic can be crowned champions for the sixth successive year if they beat Hearts on Sunday.

After returning from international duty, Gordon has now called upon his team-mates to produce the goods at the earliest opportunity before they take on Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

He told reporters: “I don’t mind where we win it. I don’t mind if it’s the day before when Aberdeen play.

We want to win it at the earliest possible opportunity. “We have put ourselves in a great place to do that already at this stage of the season.

It makes no difference where we win it, we just want to get it done as soon as possible and we can concentrate on trying to add the Scottish Cup to it.

“We want to continue winning, continue the run that we are on and make sure we do that for as long as we can.”

Hearts are priced at 7.00 to win this weekend, with the draw 4.75, while Celtic are available at odds of 1.44.
