    And so, there we have it. Celtic will be champions if Aberdeen don't beat Dundee United on Tayside. Dundee stay in sixth place, five points behind United and having played two games more. Highlights of Celtic's 5-0 win will be online at midnight. Thanks very much for joining me. Good night.

  2. Post update

    Dundee manager Paul Hartley

    "When you come to Celtic you try to stay in the game as long as you can but tonight we faced a very good Celtic team. The first goal is always vital. We felt we could have avoided it, allowing the cross to come in. Two of our key players were missing tonight (Stewart and McGowan). We have tried to give the players a strong mentality. We want to get as many points as we can. We are on a run of four defeats but we have played good teams. Players are always playing for their future; that's those in contract and out of contract."

  3. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "We like those goals (Celtic's second involved every single member of the team without a Dundee player touching the ball) but also the quick ones. We will follow the Aberdeen game, of course. It is hard to play at Dundee United. We have put ourselves in a good position. We had full control all the time. We had another clean sheet."

  4. Post update

    Leigh Griffiths tells BBC Radio Scotland that he will continue to work hard at Celtic and hopes to catch the eye of Scotland manager Gordon Strachan.

  5. Post update

    James Forrest makes it 4-0

    Winger James Forrest cracks in Celtic's fourth goal of the evening.

  6. Post update

    Rugby final score: Edinburgh 13-19 Gloucester.

  7. FULL-TIME

    Celtic 5-0 Dundee

    That is the first time this season that the Dees have lost by five goals. It's a painful evening for them as they were outclassed by the champions elect. Nir Bitton's goal, Celtic's fifth, was a peach.

  8. GOAL

    Celtic 5-0 Dundee (Bitton)

    What a screamer of a goal by Nir Bitton. The Israeli midfielder picks up the ball 25 yards from goal and nonchalantly strikes it into the top corner of the Dundee net. That lad Ronaldo would have been proud of that - he couldn't have hit it more sweetly.

  9. Post update

    Luka Tankulic tries to do to Celtic what James Forrest did to Dundee, with a pacy run into his opponents' half. However, his shot sweeps across the face of goal and goes wide.

  10. Post update

    In Glasgow, there are five minutes to go. Celtic will be 11 points clear of second-place Aberdeen, and the Dons, with four games left, know they must beat Dundee United tomorrow or Celtic are champions.

  11. Post update

    Rugby update: Gloucester are down to 14 men in Edinburgh's European rugby final. The Scots have about six minutes to pin Gloucester back. They trail 19-13.

    Kris Commons scores from the penalty spot

    Kris Commons scores from the penalty spot to make it 3-0 for Celtic.

  14. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

    "You have to give the credit to Celtic tonight - their attitude has been top class."

  15. GOAL

    Celtic 4-0 Dundee (Forrest)

    No Dundee player can catch James Forrest as he sprints clear and bears down on the visitors' goal before drilling a low shot past Scott Bain.

  16. Post update

    Rugby update: With under 15 minutes to go in their European Challenge Cup final, Edinburgh trail Gloucester 19-13.

  17. Post update

    Stefan Scepovic is next to get a run-out, with Leigh Griffiths heading off to applause from the Celtic fans.

  18. GOAL

    Celtic 3-0 Dundee (Commons pen)

    Kris Commons makes no mistake from the spot and Celtic are one slip-up by Aberdeen away from winning the Scottish Premiership...surely.

  19. PENALTY

    A foul by Stephen McGinn on Darnell Fisher results in a penalty for Celtic.

  20. Post update

    Leigh Griffiths's free-kick from out on the right is attacked by Virgil van Dijk but it comes to nothing. Dundee still don't look like threatening the Celtic net but they have at least stemmed the loss of goals.

  21. Post update

    A moment ago, Calvin Colquhoun replaced Alex Harris for Dundee.

  22. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila makes two changes - James Forrest and Darnell Fisher come on for Stefan Johansen and Efe Ambrose.

  23. Texts to 80295

    Rab McCutcheon in Benalmadena Costa del Sol, Rangers fan: "Congratulations to Celtic for winning the league. Just don't get too used to it."

    Laura Shanahan, Glasgow: "It's ridiculous to think there's anything other than poor decisions that happen to every club. You can't be bitter about it and I'm a Celtic fan, video replays?"

    Ozzy, West Bromwich: "Re Jim 20:51. Yes, like the Hamilton game this season. Clear goal not given and blatant penalty not awarded. Would never happen to anyone other than Celtic."

  24. Post update

    And Dundee goalie Scott Bain has to be lively to deny Gary Mackay-Steven, racing from his line to smother a toe poke from the twinkle-toed winger.

  25. Post update

    Thomas Konrad's clearance from the penalty spot lands straight at the feet of Stefan Johansen but his swipe at goal from 18 yards is panicky and whizzes high and wide of Scott Bain's goal.

  26. Post update

    Virgil van Dijk, with confidence oozing, swaggers forward down the left and cuts inside before making a hash of a curling effort. Perhaps he is bored at the back for Celtic this evening.

  27. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo Macleod

    "He's been a wee bit quiet tonight, Gary Mackay-Steven. He could be first for the hook if Ronny Deila wants to make changes."

  28. Post update

    Kris Commons drives a corner kick firmly to the near post area where Celtic centre-half Virgil van Dijk heads for goal but misses the target.

  29. Post update

    We'll have highlights of the match on the BBC Sport website at midnight. It's been a quiet start to the second half, mind you.

  30. Post update

    Scott Bain, resembling the Pink Panther in the Dundee goal, appeals to his team-mates to show for the ball. No-one does so to Bain's satisfaction and instead he thunders a kick-out up the pitch.

  31. Text to 80295

    Jim in Glasgow hits back: "What I'm saying is Celtic get the least amount of correct decisions than any other club in Britain!. Lots of the decisions by the officials are just blatantly atrocious not ' poor refereeing'!. These shocking decisions change games! The SFA is rotten to the core!!!"

  32. Post update

    Former Celtic assistant manager Murdo MacLeod

    "Dundee have got to get support to the striker but you get the feeling they are really just wanting to stop Celtic scoring more goals."

  33. KICK-OFF

    Scott Brown issues a motivational speech to his team-mates in the Celtic huddle and it is those players who kick off the second half.

  34. Text to 80295

    Anonymous Aberdeen fan: "Well done Aberdeen, magnificent effort to stay close to Celtic for so long, a very happy city just now. A new goalie a must next season though."

  35. Post update

    Scott Brown scores Celtic's second

    Scott Brown scores Celtic's second to put the home team firmly in charge.

  36. Post update

    Leigh Griffiths

    Leigh Griffiths celebrates leaping to nod Celtic in front in a largely one-sided first 45 minutes.

  37. Post update

    This near enough burst my head this afternoon - a guide to what can be decided and who needs what in each division tonight and tomorrow across the four SPFL leagues. Thanks to David Currie for sharing the burden.

  38. Texts to 80295

    Mac from Alva: "Well Jim from Glasgow you got a penalty that never was at Tannadice last week so cheer up."

    Mal North Antrim: "Re Jim from Glasgow - sure they are employed by the SFA and are tasked to give us SFA. An honest mistake requires honesty."

  39. Tweet using #bbcscotfootball

    David de la Fawkes: "#bbcscotfootball exactly. Celtic NEVER get any decisions. Ever. Every other fan of every other team agrees. Completely." Hmm.

  40. HALF-TIME

    Celtic 2-0 Dundee

  41. Post update

    Kris Commons attempts to punish Dundee for dozy defending at a corner kick as he waltzes in to the box along the goal-line, moves the ball on to his right foot and curls a shot just wide of the target.

  42. Tweet using #bbcscotfootball

    Mikeybhoy77: "Great team goal of champions finished off cooly by an inspirational captain #bbcscotfootball"

  43. Text to 80295

    Jim from Glasgow: "What do Celtic have to do to get decent, honest refereeing decisions? A clear goal kick and a clear, stone wall penalty, what's going on?"

  44. GOAL

    Celtic 2-0 Dundee (Brown)

    Celtic captain Scott Brown rounds off an attractive move by sweeping the ball with his right boot past Scott Bain from 12 yards. Lots of movement, players keen to get on the ball, confident touches - this could be a heavy defeat for the Dees.

  45. Post update

    Rugby update: Edinburgh are playing in the European Challenge Cup final against Gloucester and are trailing the English side 10-3 with 10 minutes to go in the first half.

  46. Post update

    Luka Tankulic considers trying to out-run the Celtic defence but decides a long-range shot is his best option - Celtic goalie Craig Gordon agrees as he makes a comfortable save.

  47. Post update

    Paul Hartley, the Dundee boss, and Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    Paul Hartley, the Dundee boss, and Celtic manager Ronny Deila watch on from the touchline.

  48. GOAL

    Celtic 1-0 Dundee (Griffiths)

    Leigh Griffiths scores his 13th goal of the season as he out-jumps leaden-footed Thomas Konrad to power a header past Scott Bain. It's a superb finish from a lovely cross by Emilio Izaguirre.

  49. PENALTY APPEAL

    Kevin Thomson is one lucky Dundee player. He headed back in to his own penalty box with the ball only to notice that Stefan Johansen was racing on to it. He slid in on the Norwegian and lifted his leg up between the legs of Johansen, sending him flying. Arguably, Johansen made the most of it but that looked like a penalty to me. Referee Bobby Madden didn't think so.

  50. Post update

    A pattern is emerging of Celtic pinning Dundee back, with the home players pinging the ball about looking for space.

  51. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Murdo MacLeod

    "Celtic have pushed so many players forward that they have pressed Dundee so far back. It means the Celtic players are finding it hard to pick out a pass from midfield."

  52. Post update

    Gary Mackay-Steven attempts to hold off Dundee's Paul McGinn

    Celtic striker Gary Mackay-Steven attempts to hold off Dundee's Paul McGinn.

  53. Post update

    The Celtic fans voice their annoyance as the referee awards Dundee a corner after Jim McAlister appeared to be the last man to touch the ball. In any case, Dundee make a hash of their chance and Celtic clear the ball.

  54. Post update

    Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths throws a dirty look at Thomas Konrad after the Dundee defender brings him down.

  55. Post update

    Dundee show signs of life as they knock the ball about with confidence for the first time in the match. Willie Dyer slips the ball up to Jim McAlister as the Dark Blues attack but Virgil van Dijk breezes in to dispossess his opponent and instigate a move that ends with Stefan Johansen curling a left-foot shot a foot over the Dundee crossbar.

  56. Post update

    Celtic take scores of touches 25 yards from goal, as they work it from the right wing to the left, and back into the middle before Kris Commons play a clever ball through for Gary Mackay-Steven, who claims his jersey was pulled as he ran into the box. The ref waves play on and Dundee have survived the first 10 minutes at Celtic Park.

  57. Post update

    Scott Brown picks up a reverse pass from Emilio Izaguirre inside the Dundee penalty box and slides a shot across the face of goal. And Celtic keep the pressure on the Taysiders as Leigh Griffiths flashes an effort over the bar, again the danger coming down Dundee's right.

  58. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila will surely be hoping to roar this weekend if results go his team's way.

  59. Post update
