Celtic close on Rangers in all-time leader books after latest league title

Celtic, on Sunday, took another step towards surpassing fierce rivals Rangers as the most successful club in the history of Scottish domestic football.

This comes after the Bhoys sealed their latest league title.

Owing to another stellar campaign, which has seen Ange Postecoglou’s troops drop just seven points, Celtic this afternoon made the trip to Hearts, in the knowledge that an eventual victory would see their lead atop the Scottish Premiership become an insurmountable one.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what the Hoops managed, courtesy of goals on the part of Kyogo Furuhashi and Oh Hyeon-gyu.

Celtic, in turn, made it nine league titles in the last ten years, and two on the trot for beloved boss Postecoglou.

Just what does that mean, though, for the Scottish football history books?

Rangers, for their part, remain out in front of their Glaswegian neighbours when it comes to all-time league titles, boasting 55, good enough for 2nd-most all time across Europe.

Celtic, though, have now closed the gap ever further, sitting on 53, just two back of Rangers.
