Cascarino continues war of words against Celtic after criticism from Lennon
By Laura O’Leary
Tony Cascarino, after revealing he thinks Celtic’s unbeaten run means next to nothing and being criticised by former Celtic manager Neil Lennon for his comments, has gone on to stoke the fire further.
Talking on TalkSPORT (Wednesday, 11:12), the 55-year-old continued to share his thoughts on Celtic’s accomplishments and came up with what he believed the current equivalent would be in the English leagues.
He said: “I believe this is like Manchester City winning League One and we are all going on an open top bus.
“When is this run going to end? This is not a competitive league.”
Manchester City are currently leading the way in the Premier League, two whole leagues above League One.

City are currently eight points clear of second place Manchester United and have yet to even taste defeat in the Premier League so far.
Celtic recently broke a 100-year-record, by going 63 domestic games unbeaten under Brendan Rodgers’ guidance.
And former Celtic manager Neil Lennon blasted Cascarino as ‘disrespectful’ after his first round of comments.
Speaking to the Daily Record, the current Hibs boss said: “It is disrespectful. How much Scottish football does Tony watch?”
The Hoops lead the way in the Scottish Premier League, sitting at the top of table after 12 games played.
Celtic have taken 30 points from their first 12 league games, scoring 29 goals and only conceding six in the process.
Aberdeen sit just three points behind the Bhoys in second place, having only suffered one league defeat themselves.
Cascarino played for Celtic, and had an unsuccessful spell at the club between July 1991 and January 1992 after moving to the Hoops from Aston Villa.
