CELTIC TO END SEASON IN STYLE

Scottish giants Celtic are set to end their incredible run in style this season. They defeated their opponents Hearts 2-0 to maintain their incredible unbeaten run. They finished the season with 34 wins and just four draws after 38 matches under Coach Brendan Rodgers.

They secured the Scottish Premier League in style. They have already defeated Aberdeen to win the League Cup, so all that’s left for the domestic treble is next Saturday’s game against the Dons in the Scottish Cup final. You can click here to check out the latest FA Cup odds at William Hill.

Many are hoping the Dons spoil the party but Celtic remain heavy favourites to complete their domestic treble. Striker Leigh Griffiths says the team would need to bring their A-game to complete “the last piece of the puzzle” this season.

“We’ve been talking about the treble quietly, but as professionals, it’s the old cliché – we need to take it one game at a time. But as the season went on, we just kept getting stronger and stronger. It was a fitting tribute today in front of the home fans,” the player said after their victory in the league.

Griffiths, who contributed 18 goals in all competitions, added that no one expected them to go unbeaten all season. He attributed the success to the “character and mentality” of the dressing room. He praised Rodgers for his efforts too.

No team has played unbeaten in a season since the rebranding of the league (though Arsenal did it in the English Premier League) - Rangers did an unbeaten all through in 1888/89 but that was when the league was 18 games, eons ago.

Rodgers himself said it was an “incredible achievement.” He said the plan was to win but that the final result was “truly remarkable.”
