BBC Pundit Tam McManus believes that the current Celtic side are capable of winning their third domestic treble in a row.
The clinched their second successive treble with a 2-0 Scottish Cup Final win over Motherwell, and McManus thinks that as long as Brendan Rodgers remains in charge of the Hoops they will continue to dominate Scottish football.
“After an invincible season that will most likely never be repeated came a double treble. It is the stuff of dreams for any manager” McManus said, writing in his column in the Herald.
“It has been a period of dominance that is unprecedented in the Scottish game.
“With that man Rodgers still at the helm, the smart money would be on history-making Celtic securing an unprecedented triple treble.”
Football Insider verdict
People might claim that McManus is being unrealistic, but then very few people thought the Hoops would complete an entire season undefeated, or win the treble two seasons in a row, anything seems to be possible with Brendan Rodgers at the helm of the Hoops. It will be interesting to see how the Hoops boss reacts to his first real setback in charge of the Bhoys, as he has only known success, but then so far any setback that the Hoops have to deal with – such as being reduced to 10 men at Ibrox – the Bhoys have passed with aplomb. Perhaps the Bhoys won’t win the treble again, but you would imagine that they will be huge favourites to win the league title for the eight season in a row, and will be favourites for both domestic cup competitions as well. Just as the dust has settled on yet another huge season for the Bhoys, attention will turn to next season as the Bhoys look for another year of domination.
