Brendan Rodgers' side needed three points against fifth-placed Hearts to be confirmed as champions after Aberdeen hammered Dundee on Friday.
Scott Sinclair opened the scoring on 24 minutes with a quick exchange with Patrick Roberts before driving a fierce shot into the back of the net.
Rodgers, meanwhile, has returned to management with a bang, guiding the Bhoys to the Scottish Premiership title in his first season at the helm - having been out of a job since he was sacked by Liverpool in 2015.
It is a sixth straight title for Celtic and their 48th overall.
Celtic clinched their first piece of silverware under Rodgers' guidance when they won the League Cup after defeating Aberdeen in November.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has played down the suggestion he could take over at Arsenal if Arsene Wenger decides to step down this summer. Without the money alone, this team would compete in the Premier League.
"My job when I came in was to win it in the best way we possibly could", said Rodgers, who replaced Ronny Deila previous year.
"I have worked hard every day and I did the same a year ago, and I hope I've improved as a player", he said.
Rodgers will be asked to do better in Europe next season but on the domestic front the Parkhead club can bank of more success.
Celtic have sold on some of their best players for a handsome profit in recent years, with Virgil van Dijk, Victor Wanyama and Fraser Forster now household names in the English Premier League.
It was a championship wrapped up in style for the Hoops, who are unbeaten in 30 league games since the start of the season, winning 28 and drawing two, and the club remain on course for a domestic treble.
"I'll play where I'm told, no matter who with or whereabouts", Tierney said. "You have to look at what you have got as well". "Yes, we could", he said.
"We knew it would be a tough game and to win a pressure game like that is a remarkable achievement from the players".
"I've got a group of young players who are still developing and some senior players who are still developing and they bring that hunger into the games". We have 60,000 every other week.
Celtic are the unquestioned kings of Scotland.
