Celtic

BT Sport pundit Steven Craigan has paid tribute to the Celtic team which became the first in Scottish football history to win back to back domestic trebles.

The Hoops completed the remarkable feat when they defeated Motherwell 2-0 in the Scottish Cup Final, and Craigan, as quoted on the Football on BT Sport Twitter account, believes the team will be ‘iconic’ in the Hoops’ long history.

“When you weigh it all up, this Celtic team have been iconic, they will go down in history,” Craigan said.

The Hoops might not have played to the same level of last season, when they went through an entire league season undefeated, but they deserve huge credit for relentlessly grinding their way to yet more success.

Football Insider verdict

Craigan is right to describe this current Celtic side as ‘iconic’, and it is their consistency which should be the most applauded as aspect of their run of trophies, as it takes plenty to concentration to win four domestic cup competitions in two seasons, when you consider how unpredictable cup competitions can be. The Hoops’ ability to raise their game for the ‘bigger’ matches has also been commendable, as they have yet to lose what could be considered an ‘important’ domestic match under the management of Brendan Rodgers. There won’t be that much time to reflect on the success though, as the Hoops will be back in pre-season training next month, ahead of the battle to qualify for the Champions League group stages which begins in July, with the Bhoys beginning their quest for a ‘treble treble’ soon after, but even that might prove to be a step too far for this group of players.
