Many Celtic fans are loving a video posted by Celtic TV on Twitter, which shows the highlights of a historic 3-0 win over Dundee back in 1988.
Celtic have won the league title 50 times during their history, per Transfermarkt, and there has been many great ways in which they have done it, but this specific victory back in 1988 will definitely go down as an iconic moment due to the sheer crowd that witnessed the match and the extraordinary atmosphere following winning the division.
The stadium was so packed that a lot people, mainly kids, were sitting on the track round the pitch so that they could fit into the stadium. The attendance for the game is recorded at 72,000 via thecelticwiki, with thousands refused entry because there was no more space.
The reason for such huge crowds was due to the fact that Celts had won the league title in their Centenary season, and it is a historic moment which was supported with another trophy in the same season against Dundee Utd in the Scottish Cup.
Here is what fans had to say following the tweet:

One of the most memorable days ever being at Parkhead that day. Little did we know it would be another 10 long years before we won another title.
