Gordon Strachan reckons Celtic are good for nine-in-a-row!
May 2020 will see the second nine-in-a-row celebrations for the hoops fans with Brendan Rodgers’ squad in place to take the title for the next two seasons.
The football landscape could be very different in 18 months time- 18 months ago it was the Pedro Caixinha Revolution that was the biggest challenge to Celtic’s dominance.
At the weekend Celtic took a two point lead at the top of the SPFL Premiership, with a game in hand there is a familiar feeling about the table with five matches to go before the winter break.
A decade ago Strachan was sitting on three-in-a-row but from his current vantage point he thinks that a realistic title challenge is still some way off.
“It’s great to have a title race in Scotland – Rangers could win the title, but I don’t think they will,” The Herald reports.
“Celtic are still by far the best squad, who’ve been together a long time and know what’s needed, with individual players who can win games.
“Celtic are at least two years ahead of Rangers just now. But I’m sure Steven and Gary (McAllister) will bring them closer and closer – as long as it’s not too close, that’s alright with me.”
After a stuttering start to the season Celtic have gone ten matches unbeaten with eight wins and two draws taking them to the top of the tree.
With Easter Road, Pittodrie and Ibrox to be visited before the winter break the next couple of weeks will go a long way towards deciding whether the hoops will enter 2019 in the driving seat for eight-in-a-row.
