Celtic flop states why 63-game unbeaten record means nothing

By John Reid

Former Celtic striker Tony Cascarino isn’t impressed with Celtic’s current record-breaking unbeaten run, saying it “means nothing” because of how far above the opposition Celtic are.

The Hoops recent 4-0 victory over St Johnstone saw them set a new British record of 63 domestic games without defeat.

The unbeaten run has saw them win a first domestic treble since 2001, and this season they are already clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

But Cascarino, who played for Celtic in 1991, wasn’t interested in giving Celtic any praise.

Speaking to talkSPORT and reported on their official Twitter account, the former Irish international said, “It’s clear they are on a completely different level from everyone domestically but are still not a great side.

“Just look at the points total last year. It’s just so ridiculous that we can’t give Celtic too much credit.

“To justify this great run they’ve been on – well, who have they actually beaten?

“Beating Ross County and St Johnstone when this team’s miles ahead – it just feels this means nothing.”

Cascarino had a notoriously poor spell at Celtic, scoring only four goals for the Bhoys in 24 games before being sold to Chelsea after less than a year at Celtic Park.

Celtic return to league duty after the international break with an away trip to Dingwall to play Ross County then face PSG in what looks to be a daunting Champions League game.
