On Sunday, Celtic moved a step closer to the treble by beating Rangers 1-0 at Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup semifinal. Jota's goal just before the interval proved decisive for Ange Postecoglou's side who proved once again who the best team in Scotland really is.
Since the Australian's arrival to the league, Celtic have dominated football in the country with Rangers proving no match for the Bhoys in the past couple of years. They're now on the brink of an 11th title in the past 12 years and are sitting 13 points clear at the summit of the Scottish Premiership.
With the Scottish League Cup already secured and the Premiership all but sealed, Celtic only need to beat Inverness in the Scottish Cup final to complete the clean sweep.
King Charles' coronation mocked by Celtic supporters
King Charles' coronation will take place this coming Saturday and it's certainly one thing which most Celtic fans won't get behind. During the Old Firm derby on Sunday, the travelling supporters made their views on the occasion very clear.
Stick the coronation where? 😂 pic.twitter.com/06jCSgpd55

Just in case Rangers fans and players weren't distraught enough by their arch rivals' domination over recent years, Celtic supporters certainly made sure that they were wound up with this chant.

Back in September, broadcasters were forced to apologise for showing some banners held by Celtic fans in the stands in the aftermath of the Queen's death.
During Celtic's game against St.Mirren, a minute's applause was held for the Queen and Celtic fans went viral for an anti-monarchy chant.

Postecoglou reacts to yet another derby victory
It's now six Old Firm derbies without a defeat for Celtic and for the green side of Glasgow, there's few better things in life. Speaking after the victory, Ange Postecoglou hailed his side's evolution over the past couple of seasons.
Twelve months ago, when we lost here, it was another tight game, but I thought last year Rangers were a very good team and they had that resilience in them. That's why they got to a European final.
They did what they needed to do to get the job done on the day.
That's been our evolution as a team this year. It's not easy to develop that because you need time and you need to be put in that situation as often as possible. But this group has really learned quickly that when you get to these big games, the games of consequence, you have to do what's required.
That's what we did and I think we have been doing it all year.
It's where the team is at in terms of their progression. They understand that in the big games you need to show every facet of your game and that's what we did.
Bragging rights remain in check for Celtic and there's bound to be quite a party around Glasgow should Celtic complete the treble over the coming weeks.
