Celtic claim SPL title

1:24 pm on 8 April 2012

Celtic have won their 43rd Scottish Premier football League title and first in 4 years.

Their 6-nil thrashing of Kilmarnock gave them the title with 5 games remaining.

For three out of the past four years the race for the championship has been a nail-biting affair with the title's destination being decided on the last day of the season.

In contrast - thanks in part to the 10 points Glasgow rivals Rangers were docked for entering administration in February - Celtic have cantered to this year's title.
