Winger Gary Mackay-Steven says winning the Scottish Premiership title with Celtic is a dream come true.

Mackay-Steven joined the Hoops from Dundee United on transfer deadline day for £250,000 and has tasted success for the first time under manager Ronny Deila. 

Speaking at the launch of Celtic's new kit launch at Parkhead, the 24-year-old told Sky Sports News HQ: "The main thing was to go here and win silverware and the league - that's what I came here for.

"I'm happy to be here and just want to kick on next season and do well. We have got a really strong squad here, the manager has a lot of options in most positions and everyone is fighting for a place, so there is a lot of competition and the future looks bright.

Mackay-Steven hailed the efforts of fellow-midfielder Stefan Johansen, who was voted the PFA Scotland Player of the Year as well as the Celtic Player of the Year.

He added: "He has weighed in with important goals and assists, so we are delighted for him and hopefully he can maintain his form next season."  

Celtic captain Scott Brown said that despite a slow start Celtic finally hit form as the season wound to a close.

He said: "As soon as we saw that Aberdeen were getting beat we were all delighted and texting back and forward, it was definitely a great day.

"It's a challlenge for every season no matter what, they (Aberdeen) have given a great fight and so has every other team, everyone always steps their game up against us.

"We started off slow and we have continued to get better and better and by the end of the saeson we were flying and we are showing what we can really do."
