Saturday Round-Up: Century Bhoys

THE BIG STORY: Brendan Rodgers was understandably thrilled with last night's 3-1 win over Aberdeen - read our match report and player ratings - which moved Celtic onto 100 points for the season, and only two games away from completing a league season unbeaten for the first time since the 1897-98 season. He praised the mentality of his team, revealing that one of Celtic's pre-season targets was to score 100 league goals this season - we currently sit on 99. He also claimed that Celtic stood up well to Aberdeen's 'long-ball' tactics, which can't be denied. The importance of tonight's victory is there for all to see in this video taken from the end of the game.

This game meant relatively little in the grand scheme of things but credit to the players and management for continuing to strive for such a high standard, especially with two of our most important players not featuring.

ON THIS DAY: In 1995, Celtic relegated Dundee United with a 1-0 victory at Tannadice, with Phil O'Donnell scoring the game's only goal. The major incident of the game was Peter Grant's injury, which looked like ruling him out the upcoming Scottish Cup Final. Thankfully, not only did Grant play in the final, but he was man of the match. Full match highlights below.
