Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton is one of the first outspoken pundits to react to the Hoops winning a ninth successive Scottish Premiership title, on Twitter today.

The SPFL has officially called time on the top-flight campaign after it was unanimously decided by all 12 clubs in the division that the 38-game schedule could not be completed.

The league has been decided on an average points per game basis, with some clubs having played fewer matches than others.

Sutton said on the social media site: “Well done to Neil Lennon and Celtic on 9 in a row. Thoroughly deserved. Serial winners. Not even close once again…”

Neil Lennon’s Hoops finished a massive 13 points ahead of second-placed Rangers, which is actually a wider gap than how last season finished up, which was nine points.


Sutton sarcastically summed that up with another tweet ‘congratulating’ Steven Gerrard’s side for closing the gap.

Although the ongoing public health crisis has taken away the glory of Celtic rounding out the season in style with celebrations at Celtic Park, we can still take a moment today to be happy about the title win.

There’s enough bad news going around just now, so we should take these big happy moments when we can get them.

Lennon and his team fully deserve all the plaudits heading their way right now after a season of hard work that paid off with excellent consistency and two derby wins out of three.

This nine-in-a-row achievement will never be forgotten and attention will quickly turn to the club’s push for ten.

We’ll have reaction throughout the day as clubs, players and former players give their thoughts on the 2019/20 season.
