Celtic manager Neil Lennon believes he can now walk alongside some of the Parkhead greats after his side wrapped up the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title in fine style with a 6-0 crushing of Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

The visitors only needed a point but a Charlie Mulgrew double and goals from defender Glenn Loovens and striker Gary Hooper gave them an unassailable interval lead. Late goals by Joe Ledley and Hooper confirmed with some conviction that the championship is back at Parkhead for the first time in four years.

Former Celtic skipper Lennon said: "I was walking behind Martin (O'Neill), Gordon (Strachan), Wim Jansen, Davie Hay, Billy McNeill and Mr (Jock) Stein and now I can step out from behind them and walk alongside them and that is a fantastic feeling for me. You are judged on championships, ultimately."
