Overview

Relive Celtic's glorious treble-winning season in which they won the League Cup, the Premiership trophy and the Scottish Cup all wrapped up in green and white ribbons. Manager Brendan Rodgers led the Celts to all three trophies unbeaten as the Hoops finished the domestic season as "The Invincibles," becoming the first team to achieve this feat. The League Cup win, achieved with four straight wins, was also Celtic's 100th major trophy win. The Championship win was Celtic's sixth in a row, the third time the club has achieved this and the unbeaten league win was only the second time the club had done this, the first being nearly 120 years previously. The Hoops also created a new league record of 106 points and an SPFL record of 106 goals scored. The Scottish Cup win came after five straight wins in which the Celts scored 17 goals for the loss of only two. All these memorable moments are celebrated in full color as well as a special feature on the Lisbon Lions on the 50th anniversary of their 1967 European success.
