Celtic F.C. - Honours

Since its formation in 1887, Celtic Football Club has been crowned Scottish League Champions 48 times; Scottish Cup winners 37 times and Scottish League Cup winners 16 times.

The club has also won one UEFA European Cup.

The club has achieved the Scottish domestic ‘Double’ of winning the Scottish League Championship and Scottish Cup in the same season on 12 occasions including one quintuple of European Cup, Scottish League Championship, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup and Glasgow Cup.

Celtic also went through the 2016-17 Level One (Scottish Premiership) league season of 38 games without losing a single match. In matching the feats of Arsenal (2003-04) and Juventus (2011-12) they became the first team in Scotland's Level One to do this for 118 years - since Rangers in 1898-99 (over 18 games).

Also winning the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup in the same 2016-17 season, Celtic became the first team in Scottish football history to complete an unbeaten domestic treble of trophies.
