Celtic F.C. (my team) have won the Scottish Premier League with a 1-0 win over Dundee United. 

All Hail the Returning Champions!

The win gave Celtic, who at one point was 9 points behind their cross-town rivals Rangers toward the beginning of the season, the League Title, completing a spectacular rally.  This title gives manager Gordon Strachan the honor of being the first Celtic manager since 1956 to win the league three times in a row. 

The lone goal was hit by Celtic striker Jan Vennegoor, his 20th goal of the season.  He scored off a cross by Paul Hartley in the 71st minute of play.  Artur Boruc, Celtic’s Polish goalkeeper, played brilliantly, saving all of the efforts United made to score. 

The match finally ended with the referee’s final whistle, declaring that Celtic had once again won the League.  Unfortunately, I did not get to actually watch my favorite team win, but I am pumped none the less.  Time to roll out my Celtic F.C. jersey and revel a bit.
