EDINBURGH (AFP) - Celtic were crowned Scottish Premiership champions for a sixth consecutive season as Scott Sinclair's hat-trick inspired a 5-0 demolition of Hearts on Sunday (April 2).

Brendan Rodgers' side, now 25 points clear of second placed Aberdeen, set a new Scottish top-flight record as the earliest ever champions after wrapping up first place with eight games still to play.
