'A formality' - McManus delivers verdict on Celtic bid to make history - depends on one thing
BBC Sport pundit Tam McManus believes that it is a ‘formality’ that Celtic will win 10 titles in a row should Brendan Rodgers stay as the club’s manager.
The Hoops recently won their seventh title in a row, and second domestic treble in a row under Rodgers, and McManus has no doubt that Rodgers can take the Hoops to the mythical 10th title.
“If Brendan Rodgers stays the 10 is a formality” he stunningly claimed on his personal Twitter account.

Both the Hoops and Rangers have won nine titles in a row in the past, but none have so far manged to reach the 10, and both Rodgers and Steven Gerrard will be aware of the stakes ahead at both members of the Old Firm next season.
Football Insider verdict
It might not be a formality that the Hoops that they win 10 titles in a row, but you would imagine that they will be massive favourites to win as many titles as they want, until the likes of Rangers and Aberdeen are able to put in a decent title challenge. The Hoops have more money and better players than the rest of the Scottish Premiership, which is why it is no surprise that the Bhoys have won seven titles in a row. The ‘double treble’ has taken the Hoops onto another level, and Brendan Rodgers will be looking to make inroads into Europe next season, as well as hoping to make it eight titles in a row for the Bhoys. The foundations seem to be in place for the Bhoys to dominate in Scotland for many years to come, and you just can not see them relinquishing their grip on Scottish football any time soon, as Rodgers and the club’s fans will not allow the Bhoys to slacken off.
