Neil Lennon was thrilled with his Celtic players
Custom byline text:
Goals by Charlie Mulgrew, Kris Commons and Gary Hooper gave Celtic the points that ensured that the Parkhead club would have been champions even had Rangers not been deducted 10 points for entering administration.
Lennon, aware of criticism from former Old Firm players Mark Hateley and Craig Burley over the validity of the title success, said pointedly: "The only way it is tainted is if you have won it and you cheated to win it and we have done nothing wrong. We have played the best football and scored the most goals, conceded the fewest goals and have the best disciplinary record in the league, so we are worthy champions."
