Video: On This Day, Hooper scores five on trophy day

On This Day in Celtic’s illustrious and unbroken history, Gary Hooper lead the celebrations as Neil Lennon’s side would be presented with the league title at full-time.

2012 – CELTIC 5 HEARTS 0

Nine years ago, Celtic lifted the first of 9 titles-in-a-row with a win at home to Hearts. Neil Lennon’s side demolished the capital team with Gary Hooper scoring a first half hat-trick. Remarkably, despite the dominant display in front of goal, the Scottish Cup winners that season would have more possession but it was the Scottish Champions that put on a show.

Hooper’s goals meant that the Lennon’s first title as manager would be with a margin of 20 points. The win would be the beginning of the incredible run that lead to a record-equalling 9IAR.
