Jim Craig makes huge claim about Celtic, Rangers fans will hate this

By Danny Wright

Jim Craig believes that Celtic can go on to win a staggering 15 Scottish league titles in a row.

The Hoops will win their sixth consecutive Scottish Premiership title this season if no one fails to close down their mammoth 25 point lead at the top of the table.

The current record – for both Celtic and Rangers – of consecutive league wins is nine.

Gers achieved this feat most recently as their winning spree lasted from 1989 to 1997, while Celtic’s record was achieved between 1965 and 1974.

Craig says that Celtic can achieve this huge feat simply because of the amount of money they have compared to their league rivals.

Should Brendan Rodgers’ side be able to achieve that number of back-to-back league titles, they would also overtake Rangers as the Scottish league’s most successful club.

Celtic have currently won seven fewer top division titles than their Glasgow rivals.

“Nobody has the money to challenge Celtic and that’s why they could win the title 15 times in a row,” said Craig, as quoted by the Daily Record.“But it’s a different matter when you’re playing in a cup, in a one-off game.

“Rangers have just brought in a guy who obviously has something the people who are running Rangers have been attracted to.

“He has had other clubs too so the boy has something in his make-up they think is going to work.”

The 73-year-old was part of Celtic’s famous Lisbon Lions and made over 200 appearances in the green and white hoops.

Rodgers and his players have a big chance of securing a treble this season with the Scottish League Cup already won and the league title seemingly in the bag, they just have to negotiate two more wins in the Scottish Cup to win everything domestically.

However, rivals Rangers await Celtic in the cup semi-final at Hampden Park in April.
