Celtic won the Scottish Premiership title on Wednesday evening following a 1-1 draw against Dundee United at Tannadice.
Ange Postecoglou's side needed just a point against fourth-place Dundee United to confirm their 52nd league championship. A second-half strike from Giorgos Giakoumakis gave them a crucial lead before Dylan Levitt's equaliser secured a point for the hosts.
Celtic have now won 10 of the last 11 Scottish Premiership titles, having lost their crown to bitter rivals Rangers last term.
The Glasgow outfit are enjoying a great season under Australian manager Postecoglou, who was appointed last summer. They lifted the Scottish League Cup in December, beating Hibernian 2-1 at Hampden to win the competition for the 20th time.

Celtic will lift the coveted trophy on Saturday afternoon, when they welcome Motherwell to Parkhead for their final home fixture of the season. That's also their last game of the term, having missed out on a spot in the Scottish Cup final.
Rangers and Hearts will meet at Hampden in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday, May 21. The Gers have also reached the Europa League final and will take on German side Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville three days before their domestic cup encounter.
"We are under no illusions, tomorrow we have an opportunity to make it a special night for the football club and our supporters," said Postecoglou on Tuesday. "I am sure they will enjoy it.

"After last season's disappointments, not just the fact that we obviously didn't have success as a football club, they weren't able to feel part of it, they couldn't contribute as they weren't allowed in the stadiums [due to pandemic restrictions].
"This year, everyone has put in maximum effort including our supporters. Everything they had pent up from last year they have released this year in a positive way and I am sure everyone is looking forward to the last two games.
"Our role in that is to make sure we continue on with our good form and continue on from the football we played at the weekend and take that into tomorrow night and as I said, take the opportunity to make it a special night."
