Scottish Premiership: Celtic win title after 1-1 draw against Dundee United

Celtic win Scottish Premiership title after Dundee United draw

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership for the tenth time in 11 seasons, despite a 1-1 draw at Tannadice with a tenacious Dundee United.

A remarkable Dylan Levitt strike cancelled Giorgos Giakoumakis’ second-half header, but a point is enough to recover the title from Rangers, while United clinch European participation.

With just one league encounter remaining, Ange Postecoglou’s team pulls four points clear of second-place Rangers.

Giorgos Giakoumakis scored in the second half to give Celtic the Premier League championship in the Australian manager’s first season in command.

Celtic’s spectacular title victory has also ensured that supporters will be able to watch Champions League group stage games next season, which is worth about £40 million to the club.

Celtic, on the other hand, stretched their undefeated league record to 31 games and completed a remarkable turnaround after trailing Rangers by six points in the title race on Boxing Day.
