The newly crowned champions have been led by the likes of Sinclair, Armstrong, Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths to score for them.
Rodgers’ side have scored 81 goals during their 30 league games so far and could go on to surpass the 100-goal tally.
However, Celtic’s defence has been equally impressive and they have conceded just 18 goals in the league.
Tierney has played a pivotal role in their success, despite missing two months mid-way through the season due to ankle ligament damage.
The 19-year-old left-back is regarded as one of the best young players in Scotland and has established his position as a regular this campaign.
He has made 32 appearances across all competitions and chipped in with an impressive 12 assists from the full-back position.
