Unbeaten Celtic end astonishing season as Invincibles with win over Hearts

Aberdeen's Firhill win saw them seal a club record points tally of 76 but some - including Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd - claim Celtic's feat of remaining unbeaten is down to a lack of competition.

"There's not too many challenges like this in Britain where you have to win every week".

The Caltx Socceroos playmaker has won back-to-back Premiership trophies with Celtic, while he can lift his fifth trophy with the Glasgow-based giants if they overcome Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday.

"The group have worked so hard for all the records they have broken, and they thoroughly deserve it". However, to perform like we've done is truly remarkable. "It's been a great season", added the 44-year-old Northern Irishman. We still have to continue.
I'm here to give as much to this club as I can.

"It's an incredible achievement".

Celtic started brightly, Griffiths curling a free-kick into the side netting before a fierce effort from Kieran Tierney dipped just over the bar.

English winger Scott Sinclair was on Sunday named the Scottish Football Writers" "Player of the Year' for his contributions to Celtic's triumph of the Scottish Premiership this season.

Griffiths kick-started the title party five minutes after the interval when he headed home a cross from the impressive Patrick Roberts.

"It's insane. I didn't think anybody would've thought we'd have gone the season unbeaten".

All it took was one stern stare from the manager to make Griffiths realise the seriousness of what he had just done.

106 Record number of points won by Celtic, beating the previous mark of 103, which was set by Martin O'Neill's team in 2002. Celtic's famous Lisbon Lions team scored 111 in 1966-67 before league reconstruction.

The achievement is by no means unusual in Europe - 22 teams from 19 different countries have gone a league season unbeaten this century, including Arsenal, Porto and Juventus.
