Crazy Scenes- Full video as Celtic fans turn Glasgow Green and White

Glasgow was truly Green and White on Saturday as thousands of Celtic fans relaxed in the sunshine, celebrating their side’s title triumph.

An 85th minute winner from Luis Palma against St Mirren was the icing on the cake with three wins in eight days again setting the standard in Scottish football.

A week earlier a 2-1 victory in the Glasgow Derby was greeted with delight but there was still work to do before the SPFL trophy was put out of reach of Phil Clement’s squad.

Kilmarnock have caused the hoops more problems than any other club this season but in front of 3,800 expectant supporters they were swept aside in a 5-0 victory, probably Celtic’s most complete performance of the season. Which led to the St Mirren match.

The champions were short of top gear on Saturday but the three goals scored were all of a familiar style and greeted with joy by 60,000 fans eager to cheer on anything after a testing and challenging season.

Tears were shed as Joe Hart made way for Scott Bain but it was joy all around at the final whistle with the party about to get underway.

Santa Claus made an ironic appearance and was welcomed in song, when thousands are singing Merry Christmas Everyone in the May sunshine you know something pretty special is happening.

Serial winners like Callum McGregor and James Forrest looked on in amazement at the celebrations around them, with over 40 honours accumulated between them there is absolutely no sign of familiarity, it seems that each trophy win fuels the hunger for the next- which comes at Hampden on Saturday.

Every year there is a slight change in the script, yesterday was the first time that Nicolas Kuhn and Adam Idah had taken part in a Celtic title party, both seemed suitably impressed.

The Japanese contingent are becoming old hands at this sort of thing, it was medals number three for Kyogo Furuhashi, Reo Hatate and Daizen Maeda with Tomoki Iwata just one behind.

All four sides of the ground were given special recognition and mini ceremonies before the crowds started to dwindle, the ticker tape blew across the pitch leaving the kids to run around mimicking their famous father’s.

With the sun out and the temperature touching just over 20 degrees the crowds moved down the Gallowgate, past Bar67 and other Celtic pubs around the Barrowland into Glasgow Cross and the Trongate which was thronged with thousands of supporters.

Songs broke out here and there, pyro was safely released, flags flew with a few fans unable to resist the attractions of bus stop roofs and traffic lights to get a better view.

As the first Scottish club to reach 54 unshared title wins the banter will be off the radar the next time Celtic are crowned as champions.
