John Hartson delivers verdict on next three SPL seasons, Rangers fans will fume

By Aramide Oladipo

John Hartson believes that Celtic will be crowned SPL Champions for the next three consecutive seasons.

The 42-year-old also believes that Rangers will not be able to challenge their fierce rivals regardless of their transfer activity.

Celtic reached the 100 points mark in the league following an emphatic 3-1 victory over second-placed Aberdeen on Friday night.

The Hoops are currently 30 points ahead of Aberdeen and hold a 39-point advantage over Rangers with two league matches remaining.

Speaking on BT Sport’s live coverage of the match on Friday night (7pm), Hartson expects Celtic to continue their dominance in the league for many years to come.

“There’s an awful lot of work to be done [at Rangers],” he stated.

“I’d like to know exactly how much Caixinha has to spend. I’d like to see Dave King come out and say ‘this is his transfer kitty’.”

He concluded: “You could probably hand Celtic the Scottish Premiership for the next three years before anybody is to get close to them.”

Hartson knows a thing or two about winning trophies in Scotland as he won the league three times during his time at Celtic Park.

Celtic have now won the Scottish Premiership title for the sixth consecutive season and considering that their closest rivals are so off the pace, it’s hard to see this great run coming to an end.

Brendan Rodgers is looking to make history at the club in his full season in charge because not only are his side closing in on the record 103 points tally, they can complete an unbeaten season if they don’t lose their two remaining fixtures against Partick Thistle and Hearts.
