PATRICK Roberts is Celtic’s Player of the Year – and that’s a choice shared by supporters and players alike. The 20-year-old, who has been in impressive form throughout his one and a half seasons with the Hoops, picked up two awards at the club’s annual event on Sunday night.
Roberts picked up the Player of the Year award, sponsored by Dafabet, and voted for by the fans, while he was also named the Young Player of the Year, the award sponsored by Eden Mill.

There was also a double delight for Moussa Dembele, who was named Top Goalscorer of the Year (sponsored by Ladbrokes), while he also picked up the award for Players Player of the Year (sponsored by Magners).

Stuart Armstrong wins the Goal of the Season award (Sponsored by Utilita) for his strike in a 3-0 win against Partick Thistle at Celtic Park, his finish the culmination of a brilliant team move of 24 passes involving every player.

Manager Brendan Rodgers added two awards to his name both from the SFA. He was awarded both the SFA Player's Manager of the Year and Writer's Manager of the Year awards. It was a great first season for the boss man.

The Academy Player of the Year (sponsored by Nixon Consultancy) was Jack Aitchison. The young Aitchison had a great season both with the senior and development squads. In total, he scored 8 goals in 24 starts while coming off the bench in 11 with 5 assist. He would add 3 Player of the Match awards to his name.

Midfielder Kerry Montgomery was named Celtic Women’s Player of the Year (sponsored by Eden Mill), while John Clark accepted the Special Recognition Award (sponsored by Iona Pub Partnership) on behalf of his fellow Lisbon Lions in celebration of the 50th anniversary of their historic European triumph.

And there was also a special award to Celtic historian, Pat Woods, in recognition of his work over many years and devotion to recording and telling the Celtic story in a number of books.
The event, hosted by Des Clarke and Gerry McCulloch, also featured a special question & answer session with Brendan Rodgers, while the musical entertainment was provided Celtic fan, Stevie McCrorie.

And the night ended with the manager, his backroom staff and the players on stage as supporters gave a rousing rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Celtic will return on Monday 26th of June 2017 as they will prepare to defend their treble and achieve seven in a row.

The final month was short and sweet for the Bhoys, as they completed one of if not the best season in the 128 years and the most exciting since the 1966/67 season. Starting with a shutout away at Rangers and a hat-trick by Moussa Dembele to end the season was what May was all about. For Dembele he began his first season in the hoops with a hat-trick against Crusaders and ended it with one against Kilmarnock, in the Scottish Cup Final.

Here is your spoiler free recap of May..

Having an Old Firm matchup to start the month is always exciting, so is beating Rangers by a 4-0 scoreline at Ibrox. A win was always expected but to do it in the fashion they did did was fantastic, especially after starting the split with two draws that saw us struggle. A goal by Tom Rogic got the day underway and Patrick Roberts added two of his own. For Moussa Dembele he finished the night off with his fifth goal in the derby.

Following the trip to Ibrox, Celtic continued their May Tour of Glasgow, this time at Firhill against Partick Thistle. Tom Rogic continued his surpurb month by opening the scoring in the twenty-ninth minute. The game certainly proved to be a closely contested one, but the Hoops managed to steal the three points within the first forty of the game, with Scott Sinclair scoring what would be the winner.

It was the final game of the Premiership at Celtic Park as, Celtic played host to Dundee FC, who saw the green and white celebrate their sixth title in a row. It was a painless 2-0 victory as we concluded a season with thirty-two wins, six draws and zero losses. It was two quick goals back-to-back as Patrick Roberts and Tom Rogic scored.

The Tour de Glasgow finished on the 27th of May as Celtic celebrated the treble, in a 3-1 victory over a struggling Kilmarnock, at Hampden. A hat-trick from Moussa Dembele helped sign off a perfect season in so many ways. It was a time of joy and celebration after the whistle blew and the players and supporters celebrated through the evening.

Despite their being many good performers over the past month, there is still one man in particular who stands out from the rest, Patrick Roberts. He is named your May Dafabet Player of the Month award winner for May and this is his second of the season. In four starts Roberts collected three goals and three assist.

Final Table

Brendan Rodgers and the club now have some time to rest before reporting back for camp at the end of the month. During the we will see player movement as well as new coaches joining. Some players will have international matches while some go on an international holiday. Stay tuned for the latest updates this summer including; the preseason schedule, the 2017/18 league schedule and other news and notes.
As if there was any doubt about Celtic's title winning credentials! :P
A few big names on that released list but like Justice said, there was never any doubt that Celtic would be picking up a lot of silverware this season!
Justice There was some haha

mgriffin2012 A few big names but they were no longer at the level I needed

Before heading off for a short vacation manager Brendan Rodgers had written a piece in the upcoming Celtic View, here is what he said.

It has been a little over a year since I started here with Celtic, and let me tell you how much of a joy it has been for me. You all (the fans) have been very accommodating and warm since I joined last May.

You all are the reason why we come to work everyday and train hard.

Thanks to you both at home and away you made us better on the field. Going unbeaten and wining a treble was one of the most special events that I have ever been apart of in my managerial career.

From the first match (Crusaders) to the last (Kilmarnock) we made sure this season would be special, especially as we celebrated the Triumph of 1967. Speaking with the surviving players they told me how proud they were with us this year.

As a Celtic supporter, that’s what you want when you wake up every morning, and if we can create the memories we have this season, consistently over the next few years, then this era we’re in can be a really exciting one.

My measure was always going to be based around domestic football and qualification for the Champions League, so we want to improve the quality of our game.

I think the players have been able create an identity of playing, of which the players will only feel stronger for on the back of this season. So we want to continue making that consistency on the field, play a better level of game and can we make an impact over the next couple of seasons in Europe.

Bringing a player like Moussa (Dembele) has been a massive help and I am looking to continue it in the upcoming transfer window. You all know I have added a few faces before hand, but I promise you that we will get even better players.

I promise you that I WILL keep the core members of the squad for the coming season.

Asking me what the highlight of the season to me is like saying what child is your favorite....It is just hard so let me pick a few.

My debut against Crusaders will always be a highlight for me and you all as well. After the lackluster season last year you all were curious to what I and some of the new guys would bring. It was amazing to see how good Moussa truly is as a player as he scored a hat-trick in his debut.

Another highlight was Craig Gordon. Craig was outstanding this year with so many shutouts and key saves. He is really the reason we never lost domestically and got real far in Champions League.

For next season I am looking to continue what I started this season but the main focus will be Europe. I would love to replicate our run from this season and improve on it. If for some reason we drop to the Europa League, winning it will be the number one priority.

I hope you all enjoy these few weeks of rest and international football but please be ready as the new season quickly approaches.

I want to thank everyone in the Celtic Family one more time for an amazing 2016/17 season.

Newcastle United make £4.1m bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney

PUBLISHED: 14:23, Wed, Jun 7, 2017 |

Newcastle United have set about strengthening for their return to the Premier League next season after winning the Championship.

The Toon have already been linked with a move for goalkeeper Pepe Reina this week, who knows manager Rafa Benitez well from his Liverpool days.

And soon to follow could be Celtic defender Kieran Tierney, per BBC Alba.

The report says Newcastle have made a £4.1million bid for the 20-year-old and are awaiting a response from the club.

Tierney had a solid campaign for Celtic, appearing in 46 matches and tallying 13 assist.

And the Scottish Premiership club's boss Brendan Rodgers sung his praises earlier in the season.
"He runs at opponents, he’s quick and he’s someone you don’t like to attack against, so we like to have him," Rodgers said.

However, they will do well to hold onto the Scottish international who has attracted a host of suitors besides Newcastle.

BBC Alba claim other English Premier League club’s rivals are also keeping tabs on the 20-year-old.

But Celtic are said to be holding out - despite the mounting interest - for a fee closer to £13m.

Tierney is predominantly a left winger but is versatile and featured in the centre 10 times this season.

He is under contract with Celtic until June 2021, having penned a five-year deal last summer.
