Brendan Rodgers' treble-chasing side then cruised through the second half and Callum McGregor and Roberts added further goals to put a more realistic complexion on the scoreline. "Celtic are a good side but we stood off them and played with a fear, I think that was there for all to see, for the first five, 10 minutes and they could probably have been ahead before we gave them the penalty". Celtic thrashed their opponents 5-0 and are one game away from an "Invincibles" season in the league, having amassed an incredible 103 points.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is looking for a last-day win over Hearts to complete a "remarkable" Scottish Premiership campaign.

"I think if you look at the numbers of tonight we matched 33 wins, which is the most wins in a league campaign by Celtic".

Striker Leigh Griffiths started the rout in the 17th minute with a penalty although he blotted his copybook when he revealed his unhappiness at being replaced in the 63rd minute, with Scott Sinclair coming on. "An outstanding team performance". But I think for the twentieth time I'm going to say he is going back to Manchester City.

However, after Jags defender Callum Booth up-ended the slippery Roberts in the box, referee Andrew Dallas pointed to the spot and Griffiths drove his penalty low past Cerny and into the corner for Celtic's 100th league goal of the season.

The champions added another eight minutes later.

Striker Leigh Griffiths created it as he slalomed through four defenders before crossing for a sliding Rogic to get a touch, with the ball hitting both posts before trickling over the line.

"If you go 38 games of a season [unbeaten] with all the games we've had, the level of games, perform like we have done then it's a truly remarkable achievement relative to the time that we're playing in".

"They play with a higher tempo".

Rogic had a great chance to double his tally in the 89th-minute, getting on the end of a flowing team move, before firing his shot straight at replacement Partick 'keeper Matt Ridgers.

He pounced on some slackness in the Thistle defence to send another curling shot into the net from the edge of the box.
