The bus parade took place on Monday evening and saw the players travel from beside the Football Museum, to a raised stage on Deansgate, allowing thousands of fans to applaud their heroes along the way.

Now fans look forward to next season and are hoping that City make yet more expensive improvements to their squad, in order to mount a greater challenge towards the Champions League trophy.
