“Champions again! Thank you for your tremendous support,” Brendan Rodgers

The best team always finishes top of the league come the end of the campaign, and it is a great feeling to know that we are the Champions of Scotland again.

Winning the Premiership title is a wonderful achievement and it’s one that I’m sure Celtic supporters all over the world will be celebrating.

The players deserve enormous credit for their efforts throughout this season. Every day they have dedicated themselves to their profession and to doing everything they can to bring further success to our club.

We’ve faced many challenges on this journey, but we have arrived successfully at our destination, which is to be the Scottish Champions – this is the prize we work for, this is the one we live for.

The coaching staff here and, indeed, all the staff at the club have played their part in what has been a great team effort, while our supporters have, as always, been a key part of this success.

I’ve said on many occasions that our togetherness is one of the real strengths of this football club, and when that happens we can and do achieve great things.

We had fantastic support again this evening at Rugby Park and I’m delighted that we have managed to secure yet another title success.

Now it is our intention to complete the season in style and we look forward to celebrating together with 60,000 Celtic supporters at Celtic Park on Saturday.

We know, of course, that this weekend will be another great Celtic occasion. I’ve been fortunate enough to have experienced Trophy Days at Paradise before, and it is always a special time, one where everyone at the club comes together to celebrate our achievements – players, management and supporters.

I know that we’ll all enjoy everything that goes with the day including, of course, making sure that we sign off the league campaign with a positive result.

However, the nature of football and of this club in particular is that we never rest on our laurels. We always want to improve and keep delivering further success for our fans.

So we will enjoy these next few days, knowing that we are the Champions of Scotland again, but our focus here will quickly turn to preparing for the final game of the season – the Scottish Cup final at Hampden on May 25th, and doing everything we can to make sure that trophy also remains at Celtic Park.


For just now, however, I want to thank all of you for your support throughout this campaign. Our aim when we began the season was to finish in this position – top of the table and Champions of Scotland.

We have achieved that goal and this is a time for all of us to enjoy the moment, celebrate our success and know that we are the finest team in Scotland.

You are a Champion once again!

Thank you for your tremendous support.

Brendan Rodgers
