Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor already has two Scottish championship medals but he reckons his third will be the most special yet.
Aberdeen’s win over Hearts means the Hoops cannot now claim the Ladbrokes Premiership title when they face Dundee at Dens Park on Sunday.
But that is only delaying the inevitable for Brendan Rodgers’ unbeaten table toppers, who must wait at the earliest until the April 2 clash with Hearts at Tynecastle to seal their sixth successive crown.
The Parkhead side have swept all domestic rivals aside this season and will be all set for a treble triumph if they can see off Rangers in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals next month.
It has been a campaign to remember for Celtic and for that reason, 23-year-old McGregor admits he will cherish the honours coming his way more than any he has collected previously.
He said: “I’ve got two winners’ medals but I think this one will feel all the more special because of the way we’ve done it.
“Winning titles at any level, in any league is excellent, but the way we’ve done it this year is incredible. If we can cross the line unbeaten it’ll be a great achievement for everyone.
“To win the league in March would have been a great achievement. Everybody has worked so hard for it with that relentlessness that’s seen us unbeaten in every game. It’ll be great to get over the line.”
