Celtic's Mikael Lustig celebrates celebrates scoring
Sweden international Mikael Lustig believes this season’s title triumph feels even better after winning his eighth Scottish Premier League (SPL) trophy.

The 32-year-old defender scored during Bhoys' a 3-0 win against Aberdeen over the weekend and Celtic secured the required points to secure an eighth league title in a row.

Lustig is delighted to play his part at a ground where he made his Celtic debut back in March 2012.

“I’ll probably celebrate this title more now. The first title was really special, but I think this one is even more special. It feels brilliant. I remember I made my Celtic debut here at Pittodrie a few years ago, so this was a special moment," Lustig said.

“We started quite well but then we let them in and, to be fair to Aberdeen, they had three or four really good chances, so the goal came at the perfect time. It was a great cross and a good header as well!

“It gets to near the end of the season and we’ve almost got our hands on the trophy but we knew we needed to get over the line. Everyone has worked really hard defensively and now we’re scoring goals as well, so it’s nice," he added.

“It was all about our fans at Pittodrie and they gave everything for the full game, so hopefully they’re really happy too.”
