Rodgers shares brilliant anecdote of how he celebrated Celtic title triumph
By Matt Farr
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers moved one step closer to lifting a domestic treble in his debut campaign by winning the Scottish Premiership title on Sunday.
He watched gleefully from the sidelines at Tynecastle as his Celtic side completed an emphatic 5-0 rout of Hearts to secure their sixth consecutive league title – and his first as manager.
But there was little time for them to dwell on their remarkable triumph with a clash against Partick Thistle pencilled in on Wednesday, and Rodgers revealed his post-match celebrations were rather low-key.
In a brilliant and amusing anecdote, Rodgers admitted that he had celebrated his debut title win by returning home and watching the game again with a glass of champagne and a roast dinner.
As quoted by the club’s official Twitter account on Monday, he said: “I went home last night, had a cup of tea, a glass of champagne, a roast dinner and watched the game again.”

Even with the league title already in the bag, there is still plenty for Rodgers and Celtic to play for between now and the end of the season.
Their unbeaten record across all three domestic competitions is still intact, and Celtic will be looking to maintain that in their pursuit of domestic treble glory.
They are set to face Rangers in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup later this month, before a potential final meeting against either Aberdeen or Hibernian.
Celtic had earlier defeated Aberdeen in the final of the Scottish League Cup in November.
