Celtic secures third straight league title in Scotland and stays on course for a trophy double

KILMARNOCK, Scotland (AP) - Celtic clinched a third straight Scottish league title with a game to spare on Wednesday.

A 5-0 win at Kilmarnock gave Celtic an unassailable six-point lead over fierce Glasgow rival Rangers.

It's the first silverware of Brendan Rodgers' second spell in charge and moved Celtic onto 54 league titles - one behind Rangers' record total in Scotland.

Celtic could also secure a league-and-cup double because it plays Rangers on the Scottish Cup final on May 25.
