Graeme Souness fears that Neil Lennon is the manager to deliver 10-in-a-row for Celtic.
The former Rangers boss has been out of management for more than a decade but has worked alongside Lennon in various television studios.
When the Irishman was confirmed as Celtic’s permanent manager last May many Ibrox fans celebrated what they regarded as a clear step down from a Brendan Rodgers calibre of manager.
Monday’s decision secured Celtic a 9th successive title, Graeme Souness says “I’ve worked with Neil Lennon… Neil Lennon knows football. For Rangers it’s an enormous challenge next year, but somehow they’ve got to come up with the answers to stop Celtic making it 10 in a row.”

At the turn of the year many neutrals felt that Celtic and Lennon looked vulnerable to a challenge from Ibrox.
The hoops responded in style, despite a far tougher fixture list they added 11 points to their advantage over the course of 10 matches. On Monday the board of the SPFL confirmed this season’s title on average points per game.
With the nine secured Lennon is in a very formidable position to raise the bar one step higher. Only a novice or a fool would try to trash-talk someone with five title medals as a player and the same amount now as manager.
