Celtic are on the verge of European history.
With 11 games left to play in their season, The Bhoys are already 24 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership. TWENTY FOUR POINTS!
That sizeable lead is the result of this frankly ludicrous record:
P27 W26 D1 L0 GD+57
Yes, Brendan Rodgers’ boys have won 26 of their 27 matches this season -a fact which is utterly, totally absurd.
Although Rangers will be doing everything in their power to wreck Celtic’s unbeaten record this weekend, it is probably safe to say Rodgers’ team are going to win the title. However, as dull as their procession to the championship promises to be, there is one thing that should drive Celtic on for the rest of the season.
The possibility of breaking the record for the most dominant title win there has EVER been. Well… in Europe, anyway.
No-one has ever won a top-flight league in Europe by more than 31 points – a feat achieved by Paris Saint-Germain in France just last season.
That means that, in news we can only assume will have Rodgers grinning from ear-to-ear, Celtic only need to extend their lead by a few points over the next couple of months to set a new record.
And all in the former Liverpool boss’ first season in Scotland…
Here are those absurd margins of victory Celtic will be trying to better come May…
