Celtic have finally clinched their eighth title in a row after defeating Aberdeen 3-0 at Pittodrie.

It was a long time coming but Neil Lennon’s side have got over the line to win the title.

The Hoops have the chance to win a third consecutive domestic treble with a win in the Scottish Cup Final over Hearts.

For now though, it is time to look back at three of the games which clinched the league title for the Hoops:

Celtic swept to the top of the league with an emphatic victory over Steve Clarke’s side. The Hoops turned in one of their best performances with James Forrest coming to the fore with two goals. The excellent Ryan Christie also found in the back of the net in the middle of a great run of form. Celtic didn’t look back after this win, which was the launchpad for eight in a row.

Probably the most important victory of the season. Celtic were toiling at Rugby Park and were in danger of letting Rangers back into the title race. However, the most unexpected player turned up with the winning goal. In injury time, Scott Brown’s deflected goal took the Hoops six points clear at the top of the league. The wild celebrations saw Brown get sent-off, but it was worth it for the victory.

A shell-shocked Celtic side travelled to Tynecastle just 24 hours after Brendan Rodgers’ departure to join Leicester City. Neil Lennon took interim charge, and he saw the Hoops take the lead through Oliver Burke. The game was level at 1-1 going into stoppage time, until Odsonne Edouard volleyed home the winner in injury time. A traumatic 24 hours ended with the Hoops eight points clear at the top of the league.
