Celtic manager Neil Lennon suggests winning this season's Scottish title will be even more rewarding than last years.
However, Lennon is of the belief that the Celtic team of this year should be remembered more when taking into account the Champions League Round of 16 qualification.
"I'd say every title means the same but this one may actually mean more given the European run we've had this year and the exertions the players have gone through," said Lennon.
"Winning championships is not easy, even though everyone looked at this one as a forgone conclusion.
"Not many of the big leagues are competitive. They tend to have one dominant team and that seems to be the case with us as well.
"Rangers being out of the league won't take away any of the satisfaction if we win it, not for me or the players.
"We won the league with Rangers in it last year. They're not here now and there is nothing we can do about that.
"If other people want to cast aspersions then fine. There is nothing we can do about that."
