Celtic FC

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership title this season.

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership title for the fourth season in a row.

The Hoops were assured of the title triumph with three more rounds of games remaining on Saturday due to Aberdeen’s defeat.

The comprehensive 5-0 victory over Dundee at Celtic Park on Friday meant that Celtic would win the championship if Aberdeen dropped points against Dundee United away from home on Saturday.

That's exactly what happened, as Derek McInnes’s side went down 1-0 at Tannadice Park, Robbie Muirhead’s first goal for United in the 13th minute proving to be the difference.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Bhoys have won the Premiership (previously the Scottish Premier League) title, asserting their dominance on Scottish football.

The triumph means that Ronny Deila has secured the league title and the League Cup in his first season in charge of Glasgow giants Celtic.

Deila is not in Scotland at the moment, but he was celebrating in his native Norway, as shown in the photo above.

Speaking to Celtic’s official website after the title was secured, the 39-year-old highlighted the key areas where his team have excelled this season.

“Defensively we have been unbelievable the whole season and we have hardly conceded a goal,” said Deila.

“Offensively we have been getting better and we scored five beautiful goals against Dundee on Friday night.”
