According to the team manager, the way the supporters behave this season helped the team achieve an eighth consecutive title.

With a 3-0 win over Aberdeen in the weekend, Celtic got their eighth Scottish Premier League title in a row.

And the team’s manager Neil Lennon wanted to take a break from celebration to thank all the fans for their support this season.

“This is to the Celtic faithful, thank you for your magnificent support again. It’s our eighth title in a row and it’s as much for you as it is for the players,” he was quoted by The Scotzine.

“We’re so proud today and thank you for your support all season. I know it’s been a little bit of a rollercoaster for all the fans, but you’ve been magnificent and the players have responded to your magnificent support.”

“We’ve got a Cup Final to look forward to, I hope to see you all there. But for today, I hope you enjoy the moment and be really proud to be a Celtic fan,” he added.

“It’s definitely different going there with Celtic than Hibs.”

“It will also be strange not having that support at the back of the goal,” he said.

“But, you have to go and play the game, not the occasion. Play the game, play the opposition. So the mindset has to be right.”

The manager continued: “It’s always a great occasion there. I like Ibrox as a stadium, believe it or not, and I enjoy going there. I look forward to it.”

“I think it’s a nice stadium. I like that old-fashioned sort of traditional build. The pitch is always excellent while there’s obviously always a cracking atmosphere. It tests you.”
