Celtic Seal 7th Successive Title With 5-0 Hammering Of Rangers

Rangers News: Steven Gerrard is having second thoughts after Celtic thrashing - Kris Boyd

Celtic's victorious stars celebrate in the dressing room after winning the league.

So he would have been an interested viewer as Rangers went to Celtic Park earlier hoping to deny their rivals a title party.

Gerrard will be tasked with creating a squad to compete with Celtic, who've dominated Scottish football for the last seven years and look set to complete the domestic treble for the second year running under Gerrard's former manager Brendan Rodgers.

He might think twice after this latest Old Firm match.

Fans behind him chanted his name and the 20-year-old lapped up the acclaim.

Despite Alnwick's excellence, Celtic was rampant after the interval and Rogic extended the lead with a placed finish from outside the box in the 47th minute, before Callum McGregor slotted in Edouard's pass for the fifth after more good work from Socceroos star Rogic. Edouard raced clear to thump a low drive past Jak Alnwick before James Forrest hit a similar strike after breezing past a series of half-hearted Rangers challenges.

Celtic have inflicted a 5-0 defeat on Old Firm rivals Rangers to earn the tag of Scottish Premiership champions for the seventh successive season. The divide remains prodigious in the league as the Hoops now sit 10 points above Aberdeen, and in truth, they never really looked in doubt this season, as Rodger's side comfortably ran out title winners.

His goalscoring celebrations were also met with wild jubilations from his teammates as Mikael Lustig took a policeman's hat and proceeded to wear it in front of the Celtic faithful.
