Celtic have taken a massive step towards the clubs 47th League title with a 3-1 win over Hearts at Tynecastle. The win lifts Celtic to 80 points and means that Aberdeen need to win all their remaining games and pick up 38 goals in the process.
This of course will not happen.
So lets reflect on Celtic’s win. This triumph represents Celtics 47th League Title. Going alongside a record 36 Scottish Cups and a further 15 League Cups, it represents Celtics 98th Scottish Trophy. Of course with the European Cup famously won in Lisbon it makes it Celtic’s 99th trophy.
Oldco Rangers won 54 League titles, 33 Scottish Cups and 27 league Cups along with the Cup Winners Cup making a total of 114 Scottish trophies and 115 overall. Regardless of what happens in the Scottish Cup final, should the Ibrox side win it will not add to the Oldco’s tally. Once we get over 100 the Zombies will hear the footsteps.
Celtic will next year play knowing that any triumph will register our century of trophies. This is something that should be aggressively pursued, with the double we can notch up our 100th Scottish triumph.
As our trophies grow we must remember to celebrate our successes. Two Semi final losses at Hampden were very hard to take. But we have come through the season as 5 in a row Champions. We now have a great chance at 10 in a row and with a little luck we will enjoy many more days like today.
WE WON THE LEAGUE AGAIN! FY THE FLAG FLY THE FLAG!
