Celtic captain Scott Brown was delighted to claim the Premiership title at Parkhead with a 5-0 thrashing of Glasgow rivals Rangers.

The Bhoys are on target to become the first Scottish team to manage consecutive domestic trebles as they face Motherwell in the Scottish Cup later this month.

Celtic had the chance to land the league at Hibs the previous week but slipped to a 2-1 loss at Easter Road but Brown was delighted to finish the job against Rangers.

“It’s brilliant to be here and winning trophies. When I first signed, it’s what I wanted and we’re still managing to do that now,” he said in an interview with the club website.

“We did it in style. The previous week we let ourselves down a wee bit so we wanted to show everyone how good we were, in front of our fans, while playing on the good pitch helped as well.

“James Forrest was brilliant from start to finish, while Odsonne [Edouard’s] hold-up play and his goals were outstanding.

He could have possibly got a hat-trick as well. Everyone may have been worried when Moussa [Dembele] wasn’t available but we have Griff [Leigh Griffiths] and Odsonne – two great strikers to play or come off the bench.

“But it was the lads’ work-rate that really topped everything off. We are a proper team and very together and very tight, whether it’s on the park or off the park and that showed on Sunday.”

Celtic travel to Hearts on Sunday and they are 1.30 to claim all three points or 12.00 to win 4-0.
