Celtic extended their sensational unbeaten run to 32 domestic games last night after convincingly defeating Inverness Caledonian Thistle 4-0 in the Highlands.
Winger Scott Sinclair bagged his 17th Celtic goal just before half-time after a sweet striker with his right-foot.
Striker Moussa Dembele took his goalscoring tally to 31 in all competitions this season after two composed finishes.
Midfielder Stuart Armstrong scored from a sublime free-kick too after 65 minutes too.
Brendan Rodgers spoke of how pleased he was with yet another convincing performance from his players.
As quoted by Celtic’s official website after the win, Rodgers said:
It was a really complete performance tonight. When I came in here in the summer, I thought we were a long way away from a performance that reflected on how we wanted to work and play. That there tonight was a demonstration of how we want to work.
Firstly, defensively, being strong and aggressive and working their socks off together, denying them space to play, and when you have the ball, playing with that charisma, quality, rotation, mobility, and with penetration in the team and looking a real threat going forward.
I take my hat off to the players. It was a brilliant performance on the back of Inverness having played well in the last couple of games as well.
Rodgers’ side are a resounding 27-points clear at the top of the league table and are just seven points away from mathematically securing the league title.
The Hoops are not only unbeaten domestically in 32 matches, but have also won 22 consecutive games in Scotland.

Rodgers also commented on Moussa Dembele’s clinical performance after the Frenchman scored another brace, and now has 11 goals in his last five games.
I just want them to work very hard. He has a function in the team and firstly you saw his work-rate tonight was fantastic and the quality of his game is getting better all the time. For a kid of 20-years of age to have that quality and stature shows he is playing at a really high level.
They now prepare to face St. Mirren in the Scottish Cup quarter-final at Celtic Park on Sunday, with the champions closing in on what could be a historic domestic treble.
