  1. CELTIC ARE CHAMPIONS

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    That's all from me. Congratulations to Celtic for winning their sixth successive title.

    Brendan Rodgers' men have done it in style, unbeaten in 30 games and banging in five goals away from home to seal the deal.

    We'll have highlights of today's game on the BBC Sport website from midnight, while you can see the action on Sportscene (BBC Two Scotland, 18:00 BST).

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

  2. Record-breaking Celtic

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Let's just have one last look at the figures behind Celtic's title triumph.

    Thirty games in, they have 28 victories and two draws. Goals for 81, goals against 18.

    It's a new record in terms of games to spare and there are a few other records up for grabs, including remaining unbeaten over the eight matches to come.

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    So, what next for these two?

    Brendan Rodgers' side are at home to Partick Thistle on Wednesday, while Hearts must pick themselves up for a trip to St Johnstone on the same evening. That's a huge game in terms of who finishes fourth.

  4. 'Remarkable achievement'

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers talking to BBC Sportsound:

    "It typifies how they've been for the majority of the season, their attitude, determination, style and intensity.

    "We knew it would be tough game and to win a pressure game like that is a remarkable achievement from the players.

    "We take the energy and hunger from training into games and, from a coaching perspective, that's great to see.

    "The fans have been behind the team from day one. Everyone deserves a huge amount of credit, the players, staff and supporters."

  5. Treble talk

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    The players and the manager are reluctant to discuss a possible treble but that doesn't stop the rest of us.

    A clean sweep this season would be just the fourth in Celtic's history.

    Martin O'Neill last managed it in 2000-01, his debut campaign.

    Rangers have done it seven times.

  6. 'Scoreline harsh on Hearts'

    FT Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Hearts head coach Ian Cathro on BBC Sportsound: 

    "The game, if we talk about the first-half, was a balanced game, two teams going toe-to-toe. We saw a competitive balanced game between two teams but Celtic have players of individual quality who step up.

    "The first half we showed a strong performance. It's very important that we're creating chances but we have to step up and take those chances. We're a work in progress. No way does the scoreline reflect what happened on the grass."

    Quote Message: Celtic will buy one or two more players and they can attract quality since they are in the Champions League
  8. 'Unbelievable' Celtic

    FT Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Celtic hat-trick hero Scott Sinclair talking to BBC Sportsound: 

    "It was a performance that was unbelievable from the whole team. We've still got work to do and the season is not over yet. We keep winning and that's the mentality here - to keep going.

    "We take one game at a time. We've done so well so we just have to keep going."

  9. 'One game at a time'

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Celtic captain Scott Brown talking to BBC Sportsound:

    "Football-wise it's been top notch, the manager has recruited great players and brought belief to everyone. We have really pushed on this season.

    "The target remains one game at a time. We've got a big game on Wednesday, so we'll go back to working hard in training."

    He's just not biting on the treble or any invincibles talk...

  10. Sinclair on song

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Scott Sinclair scored a hat-trick when Swansea City won the promotion play-off to the Premier League in 2011 and now he's done the same on the day Celtic wrapped up the title.

    Nice work.

  11. A joy to watch

    Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: They did it in style. Their finishing was magnificent today. Once they settled into this game there was no chance of Hearts winning it. The way Celtic have gone about their business from day one has been exceptional. It's been a joy to watch them this season.
  12. Out of sight

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Here's how the table looks.

    The next target for Celtic is remaining unbeaten for the remaining eight league matches and then there's the small matter of a Scottish Cup semi-final with Rangers on 23 April.

    FT: Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    With the home sections almost completely empty, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers leads his players over to lap up the applause from the 1500 travelling fans in the Roseburn Stand.

  14. FULL-TIME Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    That's it. Rather muted celebrations from the Celtic players as they exchange handshakes with the beaten Hearts side.

    Twenty-five points clear with eight games remaining. Celtic are champions for the sixth year running.

    Into added time. Not long now.

  16. Post update

    Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    Stuart Armstrong can afford a wry smile as his free kick from 22 yards flies high over the crossbar.

  17. Post update

    A big cheer for Celtic's forgotten man, Kolo Toure. The veteran defender takes over from Dedryk Boyata for the last few minutes.

  18. Post update

    Hearts 0-5 Celtic

    James Forrest burns his way past Lennard Sowah and delivers another great ball into the danger zone but Gary Mackay-Steven can't get much of a touch on it.
