Champions….again! Celtic claim SIXTH straight title with 5-0 romp at Hearts

Date Posted,April 1, 2017

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership after a 5-0 win over Hearts.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have gone unbeaten all season, dropping just four points in 30 matches since the Northern Irishman’s arrival.

It is a sixth straight title for Celtic and their 48th overall.

Scott Sinclair was the hero at Tynecastle as he scored a hat-trick.

Stuart Armstrong and Patrick Roberts wrapped up the victory for Rodgers’ men.

The victory secures a maiden title for Rodgers in his first season in Scotland.

He afforded defender Kolo Toure a rare outing late on, with the Ivorian not starting a game since December.

Celtic will now look to go through their remaining eight games without defeat to ensure another incredible feat.

“My job when I came in was to win it in the best way we possibly could,” said Rodgers.

“We have had many outstanding performances but we have only just begun because there’s still an awful lot of development in this team.

“That’s the real exciting part.”
