Celtic and Rangers win big on final day
SPL champions Celtic lifted the trophy in front of a home crowd at Celtic Park following a comprehensive 5-0 win over Hearts on Sunday.
Gary Hooper was on form and became only the third player in SPL history to score five goals in a game as Neil Lennon's team - who were crowned 2011-12 champions in early April - ended the season with a final flourish. Hooper had completed his hat-trick by half-time and then added two more before full-time, after which Celtic were formally presented with the SPL trophy.
Rangers also won handsomely just hours after it was confirmed that an offer for the stricken club from a consortium led by former Sheffield United chief executive Charles Green had been accepted.
Lee McCulloch gave the Gers a one-goal advantage over St Johnstone before the break, after which Sone Aluko put away a hat-trick as Ally McCoist's team ended a troubled season with a 4-0 win away from home.
The third game of the day took place at Fir Park where home side Motherwell were beaten 2-0 by Dundee United.
Johnny Russell and Jon Daly scored in each half for United, but the result had no impact on Motherwell's final finish of third in the table and United's position of fourth.
