Celtic Clinch 54th Scottish Title With Kilmarnock Victory

May 15, (THEWILL) – Celtic have been crowned champions of the Scottish Premiership for the 2023/2024 season after a resounding 5-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. Goals from Adam Idah, Daizen Maeda, James Forrest and a second-half brace by Matt O’Riley, sealed the title with one game remaining.

The Hoops have now won 11 of the last 12 Scottish top-flight championships, extending their incredible domestic dominance. With 54 titles, they are just one behind Rangers’ record of 55 as Scotland’s most successful club.

It was a see-saw title race for much of the campaign, with Celtic and Rangers exchanging spells at the summit. However, Brendan Rodgers’ men hit top form when it mattered most, culminating in Saturday’s crucial 2-1 Old Firm victory that left them needing just a point to be crowned champions.

The comfortable midweek win at Kilmarnock rendered the final day of the season a mere formality for Celtic. Their 54th championship marked another milestone in their stratospheric era of success under Rodgers.

While domestic rivals have floundered, Celtic have reigned supreme in Scotland once again this term. It is another title in bag that underlines their status as the dominant force of the modern Scottish game.
