  1. Celtic on top again

    Celtic are champions

    That's it from folks, thanks for your company on the afternoon Celtic settled the Scottish Premiership title with a 3-2 win over nearest challengers Aberdeen. 

    Celtic lost just three league matches, which is impressive but poor results in Europe have ultimately cost Ronny Deila his job.  

    It's the fifth success in a row. Can anyone get closer next time?

    A new manager will be at the Celtic helm next season and Rangers will be in the top flight, while Aberdeen and Hearts will look to kick on. I can hardly wait for it all to start again...

  2. Celtic winger Patrick Roberts

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "The champagne was flowing the dressing room. We should enjoy ourselves and then get ready for the remaining games. I always enjoy playing football and to score goals in front of these fans is fantastic."

  3. Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "It means we are the best team in Scotland. I have fantastic staff around me and the players have worked really, really hard. It's good when you cross the line.

    "In the league we have been consistent but the last two months we have not had the same drive and energy in the team. There have been some bad results which make the season a bit grey, rather than white."

  4. Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "We had some great chances. Second half, we showed fight and good aggression. Similar to the whole season, we gave them a fright but fell short. We rattled them and the two goals were no more than we deserved. 

    "Congratulations to Celtic, only losing three games is a great achievement.

    "It's important to me that we beat last season's points tally, so that's the focus for the last two matches."

  5. What next for Celtic?

    FT: Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    Well, the champions need to get a new manager in place. Ronny Deila leaves after two seasons and delivering two titles and the League Cup last term.

    Who will get the job? David Moyes, Bredan Rodgers, Paul Lambert, Roy Keane or someone from left field?

    And what about the squad?

    Someone needs to help Leigh Griffiths out in the goals department, central defence remains an area of concern and the squad is top-heavy with midfielders.

  6. Celtic celebrate as champions

    FT: Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    Twelve points ahead with two games remaining. Even someone with my arithmetic skills knows it's all over... Well played Celtic. Champions once again.

  8. 'Not enough positives'

    FT: Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    "Without the goals of Leigh Griffiths, Celtic might well have struggled," says BBC Sportsound pundit Pat Bonner. "Kieran Tierney has been a huge success, no doubt, and Callum McGregor has been another, but there have not been enough positives this season."

  9. Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "For me, it's been one of the best seasons of my life. Getting the three points was the most important thing today and that's what champions do; they grind out results."

    The Celtic striker is on 39 goals and is suspended for the final day, so if he's going to get to 40 it will need to be against St Johnstone on Wednesday.

  10. Get the party started

    FT: Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    A lot of fans are sticking around but Celtic won't get their hands on the trophy today. The presentation will come at home to Motherwell on the final day of the season.

    The players lap up the warm applause from the stands after posing for a team photo, with the traditional open-mouthed bouncing.

  11. Post update

    FT: Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    Celtic were red-hot in the first half and red-faced for periods of the second but, on the balance of play, they were the better side and now the players can enjoy their position at the top of the Premiership pile for the fifth year running. 

  12. FULL-TIME Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    The five-in-a-row t-shirts are on already as Celtic celebrate wrapping up the title.

  13. Post update

    Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    A huge hoof out of defence from Efe Ambrose is gathered by Leigh Griffiths. The striker tries his luck with a powerful angled shot from distance, stinging the palms of Adam Collin at the keeper's near post.

  14. Post update

    Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    Stoppage-time corner for Aberdeen...  Andrew Considine gets on the end of it again but can only head it high over the top.

    We're into the final minute as play speeds from one to the other, with both goalkeepers dealing comfortably with deflected efforts.

  16. PENALTY APPEAL

    Whistles and jeers from the home fans as Patrick Roberts sticks the ball through the legs of Barry Robson then goes down as the Aberdeen substitute stands his ground. Referee Bobby Madden simply shakes his baldy head.

    Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    Five minutes to go and the visitors need two goals to spoil the party, although they've done a pretty good job of dampening the atmosphere with their second-half revival.

    Final change for Celtic as Stefan Johansen takes over from Tom Rogic for the last eight minutes or so.

  19. CLOSE!

    Celtic 3-2 Aberdeen

    Andrew Considine causes more problems for Celtic from a set-piece, heading a corner into a busy six yard box and it pinballs around before the home side scramble it clear. The mood inside the stadium has changed completely, with the small pocket of Aberdeen fans enjoying themselves immensely now.
