Celtic kick off quest for tenth league title with easy win

Celtic kicked off their quest for a record 10th straight Scottish Premiership title with an 5-1 win over Hamilton on Saturday evening.

Scotland’s reigning Player of the Year Odsonne Edouard notched a hat-trick with eye-catching teenager Jeremie Frimpong and substitute Patryk Klimala adding the others. 

Celtic unfurled the celebratory banner for their ninth title in an empty Parkhead stadium as fans continue to stay away from the grounds due to the coronavirus restrictions.

After the low-key flag ceremony the players took the knee in support of Black Lives Matter.

The Scottish Premiership, which saw the 2019/20 season cancelled in April due to the COVID-19 outbreak, kicked off the 2020/21 season on Saturday.
