Celtic secured an eighth consecutive Scottish Premiership title with a convincing 3-0 victory over Aberdeen at Pittodrie Stadium.

Striker James Wilson missed two early opportunities to put Aberdeen ahead before Neil Lennon's Celtic took the control of the match with the opening goal just before halftime.

An angled cross from midfielder Callum McGregor was met by right back Mikael Lustig, who sent a diving header past Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis.

The visitors doubled their lead 13 minutes after the interval as McGregor's outswinging corner was met by a powerful header from defender Jozo Simunovic, who also scored the winner against Kilmarnock last weekend.

Striker Odsonne Edouard added a third goal shortly before the final whistle to extend Celtic's unbeaten run to 11 games in all competitions since Lennon took charge as a caretaker manager following Brendan Rodgers's departure for Leicester City.

Celtic, the League Cup winners, could complete a third successive domestic treble when they meet Hearts in the Scottish Cup final on May 25. 


Celtic interim boss Neil Lennon was quick to highlight the contribution of Brendan Rodgers, who left the club in February to join Leicester.

"We have to pay tribute to Brendan. A lot of credit has to go to him for this title success and the foundations that he built here," Lennon told Sky Sports.

"I was lucky enough to carry it on and it's a great moment for me and my family.

"We just kept calm, with all the emotion of this week and what happened with Billy (McNeill)'s funeral.

"There's been a lot of negativity and fake news around us at times but the players have kept their focus really well."
