Hartson gets in Twitter spat with former Rangers defender after Celtic 63-game record

By John Reid

Former Celtic striker John Hartson has told former Rangers defender Bob Malcolm that Celtic will soon have ‘more titles’ and ’10 in a row’ after a verbal confrontation between the pair on twitter.

The incident came after Hartson praised Celtic’s new British record of 63 domestic games unbeaten.

After Malcolm replied ‘what would you rather have, 63 games or 54 titles?’ the Welshman fired back with a salvo of his own.

 

Celtic sit on 48 league titles, six behind Rangers’ record of 54, with the Celtic Park side only four titles away from breaking the ‘nine in a row’ record set be Celtic in the 1970s and Rangers in the 1990s.

In the Scottish Premiership title race, Celtic are currently six points ahead of their Glasgow rivals, with both sides having comfortable victories at the weekend, as Celtic went three points clear of Aberdeen in second place and Rangers cut the gap on the Pittodrie side to three points.
