Hoops and Gers end on a high

Gary Hooper helped himself to five goals as he and Scottish Premier League champions Celtic ended their season in style with a 5-0 thrashing of Hearts at Parkhead.

The former Scunthorpe striker grabbed a first-half hat-trick, one coming from the spot, as Neil Lennon's men demolished the much-changed visitors.

Hooper struck twice more after the break, his fifth from a Georgios Samaras cross with three minutes remaining, taking his tally for to the season to 29 and joining Kenny Miller and Kris Boyd in players who have scored five goals in an SPL game.

The romp confirmed Celtic's supremacy this season with Neil Lennon's men finishing on 93 points, one more than last season when they finished second.

Sone Aluko claimed a hat-trick as Rangers cruised to a 4-0 win at St Johnstone .

And, on the day the football came to an end for now, the Glasgow giants will be hoping for a positive new beginning off the field after administrators accepted an offer from Charles Green's consortium for the purchase of the club.

Lee McCulloch set the ball rolling at McDiarmid Park before Aluko netted three second-half goals, with the hosts failing to find the win that would allow them to claim a Europa League spot.

Stephen Craigan's final appearance for Motherwell ended in defeat as Dundee United claimed a 2-0 victory at Fir Park.

The Motherwell captain announced his retirement earlier in the week but he could not end on a high as goals from Johnny Russell and Jon Daly secured a comfortable victory for United.

Russell opened the scoring in the eighth minute after Darren Randolph had twice denied Stuart Armstrong and the midfielder turned provider with nine minutes to go as he laid the ball to Daly to stroke home from close range.

Craigan was presented with an award prior to kick-off and after five minutes the Fir Park crowd rose to their feet to applaud the Northern Irish centre-back.
