THE BIG STORY: The fallout from the Invincibles' unbeaten season is continuing, with captain Scott Brown proclaiming that the side are 'legends'. He also put the unbeaten run down to 'hard work and dedication' and identified the 4-3 come from behind victory over Motherwell in December as the catalyst to the players believing that they could go an entire league campaign unbeaten. Interestingly, and perhaps a insight into the squad's mentality, Brown revealed that mobile phones have been banned from Celtic's dressing room, and anybody caught using them is fined, which goes a long way to explaining why team spirit is so good.

SITE NEWS: Yesterday we looked back at a poignant night at Tannadice as Celtic clinched the league title - you can read it here. Later today our new series on Celtic's three trebles begins with the immortal season of 1966-67.

OTHER NEWS: Gordon Strachan has chosen six Celtic players in the Scotland squad to face England next month - Craig Gordon, Kieran Tierney, Stuart Armstrong, Scott Brown, James Forrest and Leigh Griffiths - and said that he expects Brown to play for Scotland 'for years to come'. He also said that Callum McGregor was 'unfortunate' not to be picked for the squad.

Kieran Tierney has revealed that he turned down the chance to join Arsenal last summer, with Brendan Rodgers convincing him to stay at Celtic.

ON THIS DAY: In 1999, Celtic defeated Dundee United 2-1 in an end of season dead rubber, Mark Burchill getting both of the Celtic goals. Sadly there's no footage of the game, so as it's Scottish Cup Final week, here's footage of our last Scottish Cup Final victory, the 3-0 win over Hibs in 2013.
