Celtic fans are in joyous mood tonight after watching Neil Lennon’s side clinch an eighth successive league title win earlier today against Aberdeen.

Needing just a point to secure the trophy, the Scottish champions demolished the home side at Pittodrie, eventually winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Mikael Lustig, Jozo Simunovic and Odsonne Edouard.

Lustig’s effort drew most of the plaudits, with the right-back latching on to a sumptuous low cross from Callum McGregor to stick a diving header past Joe Lewis.

It’s the kind of contribution we haven’t often seen from the Swede but he sent the away end into raptures and had Hoops fans going daft around the world.

He’s been criticising heavily over the last 18 months but has turned things around after the departure of Brendan Rodgers.

His contract is up at the end of the season but given his recent form, there are some who think he should be given a deal for another 12 months.

These fans are delighted with his run of performances, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…

Has Mikael Lustig done enough to earn a new contract at Celtic? Have your say in the comments below…

  • Delighted with his goal contribution, but that’s it as far as his performance goes. He is suspect defensively, as demonstrated too many times yesterday. The rock solid centre half pairing masks his weaknesses. Have a look again at his defending yesterday, not the terrific goal he scored. A great servant, but no room for sentiment. Thanks for the memories. Time for a quality right back.

  • what we need is a defender who is a first pick current international who plays at the highest level for his country including European Championships and World Cups. a good trainer a family man who brings nothing but respect to our club. his name, Mikail Lustig. a great player abd a great Celtuc man.
