Tony Cascarino has continued his rant about Celtic’s record-breaking 63-game unbeaten run, claiming it’s only because Rangers are “so weak” that the Hoops have dominated.
The Parkhead flop was hit with a major backlash after belittling Brendan Rodgers ‘ side’s record by claiming it was worthless.
Rodgers’ side completed a domestic treble last season and are on track to repeat that feat this season having already reached the Scottish League Cup final and opening up a lead at the top of the Premiership.
The Hoops have not lost domestically since May 2016 but Cascarino insists Rangers’ weakness has been Celtic’s biggest strength – before mocking Rangers striker Kenny Miller’s age.
“Look at Rangers’ squad recently: they had two players from Accrington Stanley,” Cascarino wrote in his column in The Times.
“Rangers are so weak it has enabled Celtic to do what they have done.
“When I look at the squads and I see the names, Kenny Miller playing at 53 or whatever he is, I see players who are playing League Two, League One football who go to Scotland to continue their career.
“I’m not saying Celtic aren’t a good side. I think they are a good side. I think Brendan Rodgers has done an amazing job.”
Rodgers has taken the Bhoys to the brink of securing a place in the knockout stage of the Europa League and will be hoping his side can see out the remaining two games in the Champions League and secure third place.
The Scottish champions face a trip to Paris to take on Paris Saint Germain before Anderlecht visit Glasgow in the final round of fixtures.
The Hoops return to domestic action on November 18th when they travel to Dingwall to take on Ross County and also have a Scottish League Cup final against Motherwell later this month.
Celtic currently have a three-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
