On This Day: First league titles as Celtic manager for Neil Lennon and Martin O’Neill

On This Day, Martin O’Neill and Neil Lennon celebrated their first titles as Celtic manager. Lennon sealed his first title, the first of the nine in a row win with a vintage win at Rugby Park whilst O’Neill’s side beat St Mirren to win a title in his first season in Glasgow

Ten Years ago today Celtic thrashed Kilmarnock 6-0 to win the title for Neil Lennon with the goals coming from Mulgrew (2), Loovens, Hooper (2) and Ledley. That was a very decent team that Lenny built.

Here are some images from that day…

Sixteen years ago today Motherwell went down one nil at Celtic Park with the only goal of the game coming from Derek Riordan – remember him?

Twenty-two years ago today Tommy Johnston got the only goal of the game to secure the title for Martin O’Neill in his first season as Celtic manager.

Forty-four years ago today Mike Conroy and Andy Lynch got the goals as Celtic beat Partick Thistle 2-0, the points were vital and helped Celtic get to the last game of the season when we needed to beat Rangers on a Monday night to win the league.
