When you compare the football played by Celtic in comparison to last season, it has to be admitted that the team were in far better form last season.
But the outcome is exactly the same – the Hoops have won the domestic treble, which is a feat which should still be celebrated by Hoops fans everywhere.
Even the way the cup final was won says a lot about the treble victories, as last season was won with a last minute Tom Rogic winner against Aberdeen which brought scenes of wild celebration, whilst this season the game was won at half-time as Motherwell never looked like scoring two goals to get back into the game.
The Hoops have done just enough for the ‘smaller’ games and turned up for the ‘big’ games, such as the cup matches and games against bitter rivals Rangers.
Injuries haven’t helped as the Hoops have struggled to match the consistency of last season, and the fact that Scott Sinclair is the top scorer even though he has had a very poor season says quite a lot.
But one thing that can’t be denied is the will to win, which was shown in spades when a 10 man Hoops side won 3-2 at Ibrox to all but clinch the league title.
That was the signature win of the season, one which will go down in history as the Hoops have achieved something unique in Scottish football, and in years to come people won’t remember the poor performances, they will remember the treble.
