Celtic will be looking to make it five league wins in a row when they come up against Hearts on Saturday afternoon.

This is the first time since the 2016/17 season that Brendan Rodgers’ side can put together five consecutive wins in the league and they’ll be looking to their last run for inspiration.

One for those who believe in omens

The last time The Bhoys managed this feat was coincidentally against Hearts on the last game of the Invincibles season.

To make matters scarier, Celtic ran out as five goal winners the game before, this time at Patrick Thistle.

Celtic’s impressive victory against Dundee was the first time Celtic had done four in a row in league wins since that run of games too.

Celtic champions but eyes turned to the week after

There was an eye on facing Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final the next week.

The game wasn’t the best watch for the neutral as Hearts huffed and puffed to keep Celtic out.

Unfortunately for the Jambos, they succumbed to their fierce rival when Griffiths scored five minutes into the second half.

The icing was put on the cake by Stuart Armstrong who netted Celtic’s second after 76 minutes.

Celtic were crowned champions officially for the 48th time when Scott Brown held the trophy aloft.

There won’t be any trophies awarded this Saturday at full time but a victory against the current league leaders will put Celtic on good stead to do so again for the 50th time.

Maybe we should stick five stars on our badge next summer!
