CELTIC clinched the Premiership title after a Giorgos Giakoumakis goal sealed a 1-1 draw with Dundee United at Tannadice.

It caps a superb first season in Scotland for Ange Postecoglou, who delivered the crown back to Parkhead at the first time of asking.

A litany of former Celts took to social media to congratulate the team, including club legend Kenny Dalglish. The Scotland record-holder had a classy message for Postecoglou and even quoted the Celtic Song.

He posted: "Congratulations to Celtic FC. Not bad for your first season, Ange. Sure it was a Grand Old Team to play for..."

Ex-players like Stiliyan PetrovΒ sent well-wishes while Celtic Women's head coach Fran Alonso commended the style of football as well as the league triumph.

Never one to turn down an opportunity, Chris Sutton congratulated the Celts while also getting in a dig at rivals Rangers.

He posted: "Big Ange Postecoglou putting Rangers firmly back in their place."
