Celtic need just one point against Dundee United at Tannadice on Wednesday night to win the title and be confirmed Scottish Premiership champions.

A thumping 4-1 win over Hearts at Celtic Park yesterday meant that if Rangers had dropped points against Tam Courts’ side today then the Bhoys would be anointed champions this afternoon.

However, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s outfit managed to beat their visitors at Ibrox after, you guessed it, a penalty from James Tavernier in the second half. Struggling loan signing Amad Diallo then made it 2-0 late on.

Ultimately the result matters little. Everyone knows Celtic are champions-elect given our goal difference advantage.

The opportunity to finally win it in front of supporters at Tannadice, or even Motherwell next Saturday, will be sweet indeed.

Tickets for the Tayside clash, which kicks off at 7:30pm on Wednesday, are like gold dust. Celtic fans will at least have the Shed End once again having been denied the regular allocation in March’s Scottish Cup quarter-final clash.

Ange Postecoglou’s Bhoys have won 3-0 on both visits to Dundee United this term so confidence will be sky high with regards to getting the result that clinches the Cinch.

It will be a party atmosphere from the off. Whether at the stadium or watching on from television, Celtic supporters around the world are anticipating a fantastic trophy lift next weekend.

Not long now everyone, not long now. One more time, as they say.
