Goals from Leigh Griffiths and Stuart Armstrong in the second half saw Brendan Rodgers’ side become the first side since Rangers in 1899 to go through a season league campaign unbeaten in Scotland before lifting a sixth straight Premiership title.
They are the first team to go unbeaten over 38 games. They also set an new record points total of 106 points, and a new goals record of 106 goals beating their own club record of 105 in 2003/04 set under another Northern Irish manager in Martin O’Neill.

Brendan Rodgers takes the acclaim.

They finish 30 points clear of second-placed Aberdeen and 39 points ahead of bitter Glasgow rivals Rangers, who ended their first season back in Scotland's top flight in third after a 2-1 win at St Johnstone on the final day.
Celtic will finish the entire season unbeaten if they overcome Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday, a result that will give them the domestic treble as Rodgers bids to join European Cup-winning manager Jock Stein and O'Neill as the only manager in the club's history to complete the feat.

It would be a special achievement for Celtic - who have dropped points on just four occasions in 2016-17 - as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of becoming the first British club to lift the European Cup in Lisbon in 1967.
In a future pub quiz, Kolo Toure - who came on a substitute against Hearts - becomes the first man to complete a league season unbeaten with two clubs after his role in Arsenal's title success in 2003/04.
