Ange Postecoglou has fired a cheeky dig at Rangers boss Michael Beale after lifting the Scottish Premiership title.

After lifting the trophy the Hoops boss addressed the packed out Parkhead stands.

He said: "Champions, again. We are champions again because of this incredible group of players brilliantly led by our skipper Callum McGregor, champions again because of this unbelievable group of people behind the scenes, outstanding.

"Champions again because of you (the fans). In the words of the immortal Tommy Burns, 'you are always there, always.' Champions again because I am a lucky man And we have one more to go. We never stop."

Postecoglou's "lucky man" dig was aimed at Beale after the Rangers manager used the same term in relation to the transfer funds at the Aussie's disposal.

Kyogo Furuhashi and Oh Hyeon-gyu both struck twice as champions Celtic signed off their cinch Premiership season with a thumping 5-0 home win against Aberdeen in a carnival atmosphere.

Two clinical first-half finishes from Japan striker Furuhashi gave the Celtic Park party further impetus after Ange Postecoglou’s side had been presented with the league trophy before kick-off.

Sweden centre-half Carl Starfelt added a third in the closing stages and South Korea striker Oh’s late double had Celtic Park bouncing as the Bhoys celebrated their 11th league title in 12 years.

Furuhashi extended his league goals tally to 27 for the season, but he and right-back Alastair Johnston were later withdrawn through injury to give Celtic cause for concern before next week’s Scottish FA Cup final.

Postecoglou’s side face Inverness at Hampden Park on Saturday in pursuit of a fifth domestic treble in seven seasons.
