Seven titles later the hoops look stronger than ever as supporters enjoy the second most successful period in the club’s history. Running brilliantly in tandem with Celtic’s success has been the administration, liquidation and launch of a tribute act from Ibrox that has still to adapt to the new reality.

That completed the come back. Only 2 months before that we were 3 down at killie. We came back and were top before the turn of the year. Then in February 2012 they died on Neil Lennons watch. Thanks for the memories Neil

Back in 2011 Glasgow was getting battered by a storm but the match was given the go-ahead with Neil Lennon’s side ready to make the decisive move in the title race.
At the start of November the hoops were sitting in third place a massive 15 points behind the side put together by the young apprentice, Ally McCoist’s who had shrugged off two early European defeats thanks to the backing of billionaire owner Craig Whyte.
Star striker Nikica Jelavic had even claimed that the title had been won but after a header from Joe Ledley Celtic went into the new year as league leaders. Things were never to be the same again, there was just one more ‘Old Firm’ match to be hosted at Celtic Park.
Neil Lennon has handed the reigns on to Brendan Rodgers via Ronny Deila, the goals of Gary Hooper are now being scored by Odsonne Edouard after contributions from Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths.The success has remained constant, it has been increased to engulf a double treble with the first installment claimed on a treble treble.
If Rodgers’ side win Saturday’s derby match at Ibrox they’ll be in pole position to claim title number eight, who would back against another run of seven successive title successes?
