Celtic have clinched the Scottish Premier League title after a 4-1 victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Sunday.

The Hoops moved 15 points clear of second-placed Motherwell with four games to play thanks to four second-half goals from Gary Hooper (double), Joe Ledley and Georgios Samaras.

“Winning the league is a very special moment, I want the players to enjoy it,” Celtic boss Neil Lennon said.

“We were okay in the first half, second half we really came through. It’s a great way to win the championship.

“While I’m here I want to win things and winning the championship is always very special.

“It’s a privilege to manage this club and to win this championship again, I’m so proud for the players and the fans - they’re the people who make this club what it is.”

Celtic will look to complete the double when they take on Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup on May 26.
