Watch the incredible late night Celtic Park celebrations of the champions

After sweeping to the SPFL title in style at Rugby Park last night the party continued up the M77 at Celtic Park.

From 10pm onwards fans started to gather in The Celtic Way as they started their own party ahead of the return of Brendan Rodgers and his victorious squad.

It was a night of complete joy for the players and supporters as they took in the achievement of being champions of Scotland against all odds.

The SFA and Crawford Allan provided the main opposition with a series of bizarre appointments and decision making that effectively levelled up the race for the title until the final week of the season.

By far the most ridiculous hurdle was at Tynecastle at the start of March where John Beaton on VAR duty came up with some outrageous decisions that Don Robertson was happy to go along with.

Reduced to 10 men after 15 minutes then further penalised by a ridiculous penalty awarded to Hearts that afternoon was the last time that Celtic were defeated in the SPFL.

Rodgers was handed his first ever touchline ban when Celtic went to Livingston at the end of March, Robertson again refereed the match but Celtic won 3-0 and the title race was on.

A week later more incredible decisions from Beaton at Ibrox held Celtic to a 3-3 but the team were in their stride, the incentives and prizes were there to be collected.

A week later, beating St Mirren at home Rodgers warned that this was the time of the season that Celtic came alive.

That message was heard across the city as Phil Clement’s side picked up one point from five matches which gave Celtic a little leeway but they never relented with five wins on the bounce post Ibrox sweeping them to the 23/24 title.

Saturday’s 2-1 win in the Glasgow Derby laid down a deposit on the SPFL title, by half-time at Kilmarnock Celtic were 3-0 in front with the party plans launched.

Adam Idah came into the Starting XI, scored after five minutes to get the all rolling with Daizen Maeda and James Forrest adding to the scoreline.

Player of the year Matt O’Riley completed the scoring with a second half double before the serious partying got underway.

In front of the 3,835 away supporters in the Chadwick Stand the players took a bow before driving up the M77 to be greeted by another welcoming party at Celtic Park.

After a recovery day off today the champions will be back at Lennoxtown tomorrow before collecting the SPFL trophy and rounding the league campaign off against St Mirren on Saturday.
