Celtic defender Dedryck Boyota is looking forward to the chance to clinch the league title when Celtic travel to Hearts on Sunday.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: “We’ll treat Hearts away the same and hopefully we can win the game. We know our job and we know what we need to do.”

"Sunday is our game and that’s what we’re focused on. A champion will always want to be a champion - it doesn’t matter when it happens. I’ll watch the game tonight and we’ll see.

“Everyone enjoys the title. If we win this weekend I’ll enjoy it like I did last year. Even though I was injured when we won it last year I still enjoyed it. It’s a great achievement. It’s important for me, the team, the club and the fans to enjoy."

Celtic are currently 22 points clear of second place Aberdeen and will retain their title with a win against Hearts at Tynecastle. They are still unbeaten in all domestic competitions and are looking to complete the treble in Brendan Rodgers first season.
