Celtic became the latest team to etch their name in “Invincibles” history when they secured their sixth Scottish Premiership title in a row with a 2-0 victory over Hearts on 21 May 2017.
Not only did they manage to win the league with an unbelievable record of 34 wins and just four draws, Brendan Rogers’ Bhoys also managed to secure a domestic treble (Scottish Premiership, Scottish Cup, and Scottish League Cup) without suffering a single defeat. No Scottish opposition were able to best the Hoops throughout the entire 2016/17 campaign, across all competitions.
While Celtic have been the one dominant force in Scottish football since Rangers’ demise in 2012, many felt this would be the closest league season in years with Celtic’s city rivals returning to the top flight after a five year absence. Brendan Rogers’ appointment in the summer of 2016, however, only enhanced Celtic’s stranglehold on Scottish football.
Rogers’ influence, a couple of key signings (Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair) and a dramatic transformation of players already at the club (Stuart Armstrong and Calum MacGregor) saw Celtic move out of touching distance of all domestic competition, return to the Champions League and secure a record-breaking undefeated treble.
