Celtic won the Scottish Premiership title after a 1-1 draw with Dundee United at Tannadice on Wednesday night.
Ange Postecoglou’s side needed just a point against fourth-placed Dundee United to confirm their 52nd league title. A second-half goal from Giorgos Giakoumakis gave them the decisive lead before Dylan Levitt’s equalizer secured a point for the hosts.
Celtic have now won 10 of the last 11 Scottish Premiership titles after losing their crown to bitter rivals Rangers last season.
The Glasgow side are enjoying a superb season under Australia manager Postecoglou, who was appointed last summer. They won the Scottish League Cup in December and won the competition for the 20th time with a 2-1 win over Hibernian at Hampden.
Celtic will lift the coveted trophy on Saturday afternoon when they welcome Motherwell to Parkhead for their final home game of the season. This is also their last game of the season after missing out on a place in the Scottish Cup final.
Rangers and Hearts meet in the Scottish Cup final in Hampden on Saturday 21 May. The Gers have also reached the Europa League final, meeting German club Eintracht Frankfurt three days before their domestic cup game in Seville.
“We have no illusions, tomorrow we have the opportunity to make it a special evening for the football club and our fans,” Postecoglou said on Tuesday. “I’m sure they’ll enjoy it.

“After last season’s disappointments, not only the fact that we obviously didn’t succeed as a football club, they couldn’t feel a part of it, they couldn’t contribute anything as they weren’t allowed in the stadiums [due to pandemic restrictions].
“This year everyone, including our fans, has made maximum efforts. Everything they had pent up from last year they released in a positive way this year and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to the last two games.
“Our role in that is to make sure we continue our good form and continue with the football we played over the weekend and take that into tomorrow night and, like I said, take the opportunity to make it a special night close.”
