Ange Postecoglou’s side wrapped up the championship with four games to spare after a 2-0 victory at Hearts on May 7 to secure their 11th title in 12 seasons – the only aberration coming in the covid-afflicted 2020-21 season when Steven Gerrard’s Rangers claimed the honour.
Aberdeen will also arrive in celebratory mood having secured a third place finish and the guarantee of European group stage football next season – providing Celtic defeat Inverness in the Scottish Cup final next weekend – following the 3-0 midweek win over St Mirren.
The Dons will look to play the role of Parkhead party poopers but Celtic will be keen to sign off with a victory ahead of their Hampden showdown with Inverness after a run of three matches without a win since being declared champions, losing at both Rangers and Hibs either side of a home draw with St Mirren.
In a quirk of the post-split fixtures, Aberdeen will visit Celtic Park for a third time this season having lost 4-0 on their most recent trip in February after also going down 2-0 on the opening day of the Premiership season back in July. The Hoops also emerged with a 1-0 victory from the only Pittodrie meeting of the campaign in December meaning the Dons have yet to score against the champions this season.
