Didi Hamann Makes Case For Brendan Rodgers To Be Next Arsenal Manager

Scott Sinclair helped himself to a hat-trick as a rampant Celtic claimed a sixth straight Scottish Premiership title with a 5-0 walloping of Hearts at Tynecastle.

Celtic are 25 points clear of second-placed Aberdeen with 86 points from 30 matches, needing 14 points from their final eight matches to break the century mark.

Celtic took the lead through Sinclair after 24 minutes when he fired into the roof of the net from an acute angle after fine interplay with Patrick Roberts.

The Glasgow giants have dropped just four points in the league in Rodgers' debut season as Celtic boss.

Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers revealed he has plans to return to the Premier League in the future, but insists that his immediate focus remains with Celtic.

He brushed off any idea that he had made the team "more dominant" domestically, outlining that his goal for this season - and something which aided their title success - was player development.

Celtic are still on course to win the domestic treble, having beaten Aberdeen in November to win the League Cup.

"But Celtic have been talking about this for 20 years and it isn't going to happen".

"I'll play where I'm told, no matter who with or whereabouts", Tierney said. It was tough, we played well in patches but it was only really the beginnings of the team working together. "Yes, we could", he said.

"We played some great football in the Champions League but it is always going to be a hard group no matter who you get, you are dealing with top-quality players".

"Tactically he's playing in different systems, he's becoming more flexible and his knowledge of the game (is better) and that allows you to perform at a higher level".

Rangers have been unable to compete with the Bhoys this season, but one suspects that they will step up their game next campaign. "They have never had a lazy day here".

Gone from a bit part player to pivotal the way that Rodgers sets out his team, Armstrong deserved the chance to get his name on the scoresheet on the day that Celtic crossed the line.

"Football-wise, it's been top notch", he said.

Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths, who scored 40 goals last season, has been often been consigned to the bench although he missed Sunday's game through injury along with Dembele.
