The trophy took a trip across the city yesterday- switching from the east end to the leafy west with visits to the homes of Ryan Christie and Chris Jullien.

On Monday the Celtic players found out online that their efforts over 30 matches had delivered nine-in-a-row to match the achievements of Jock Stein and Billy McNeill in the sixties and seventies.

For Christie it was the fourth time that he has played a part in a title win although the first two saw him spend time out on loan at Inverness Caley Thistle and Aberdeen before playing a full part in delivering titles number eight and nine with 20 SPFL goals in the last two campaigns.

It’s a new experience for Jullien and one that he has fully embraced after three seasons in mid-table with Toulouse.

The central defender earned his spurs in the early season win at Ibrox, going on to form a solid partnership with Kris Ajer while chipping in vital goals in all competitions.

Jullien and Christie will be looking to get their hands on the Scottish Cup but could face a long wait after their joint effort saw off St Johnstone to take Celtic into the last four where they are waiting to play Aberdeen.
