Monday Round-Up: The Infrangible Invincibles

New, comment
Scott Brown and Brendan Rodgers with the league trophy

THE BIG STORY: Celtic's Invincibles confirmed their place in history yesterday with a 2-0 win over Hearts - read our match report here and player ratings here - and Brendan Rodgers explained that he wanted the players to be 'infrangible' - which only Stuart Armstrong knew the meaning of, that is 'to be unbroken'. Rodgers also said he doesn't think there will be another unbeaten league season achieved in his lifetime, which shows how special Celtic's achievement is, no matter what the critics may say, and Leigh Griffiths has no time for those. Yesterday was also about saying farewell, and Efe Ambrose and Patrick Roberts both received great ovations, but a special word for Kris Commons, who leaves as a Celtic legend of the 2010s, and was praised fulsomely by Brendan Rodgers. Of course, attention now turns to Saturday's Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen and we'll have plenty of coverage on here, but before then here's the coverage of the trophy ceremony, as seen on Celtic TV.

OTHER NEWS: Another day, another award for Celtic, this time a treble at the Football Writers Awards.

ON THIS DAY: In 2008, on an emotionally charged night at Tannadice, Celtic clinched an improbable league title with a 1-0 victory over Dundee United, the only goal coming from Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink. The title was dedicated to the late Tommy Burns, and you can see highlights below.
