NIR BITTON and Tom Rogic were given the honour of carrying the Scottish Premiership trophy onto the pitch after their final match for Celtic.

The pair will leave the club in the summer to pursue other opportunities and were hailed by supporters this afternoon with standing ovations during the match.

And come full-time, and for Celtic to receive the trophy, the departing duo carried it out onto the pitch where Callum McGregor raised it aloft.

The Scottish Premiership title also grants Celtic direct qualification into the Champions League group stage. So it was fitting the iconic theme was blared over the speakers as the Celtic title-winning squad walked out onto the pitch.

Ange Postecoglou said of Rogic and Bitton's respective exits from Parkhead:  “While we are very sad to see both Tom and Nir leave the club, we totally respect their decisions in wanting to seek a different challenge in football, having both played their part in our success for the past decade. 

“They have certainly made such a tremendous contribution to Celtic over such a long and successful period for the club and I understand that in their minds the time is right to move on.

“I am sure they will leave with the sincere best wishes of our supporters having given so much of themselves to Celtic.

“From a personal perspective, as well as being very talented players, both Tom and Nir are top guys who have supported me brilliantly this year, in my first season – and again played a big role in this season’s success.

“Of course we will miss them, but we wish both Tom and Nir, and their families, great success in everything they do.”
