Scottish Premiership, Pittodrie Stadium - Aberdeen 0 Celtic 3 (Lustig 40, Simunovic 53, Edouard 88)

Celtic secured the Scottish Premiership title with a comfortable 3-0 away win at Aberdeen on Saturday afternoon.

The Bhoys' eighth consecutive title win helped them reach the impressive milestone of 50 overall league titles, as they attempt to close in on Rangers' record of 54 titles.

Neil Lennon's side opened the scoring thanks to a diving header from Swedish international Mikael Lustig at the end of the first half.

Jozo Simunovic doubled the lead for the Glasgow club with another header, before club-record signing Odsonne Edouard sealed the victory with a late goal on the counter.

Celtic are now just a Scottish Cup win away from completing an unprecedented 'treble-treble' following domestic clean sweeps in the past two seasons under Brendan Rodgers.

Lennon took the managerial reins from Rodgers following his February move to Premier League club Leicester City.

Celtic face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday 25 May at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
