‘CELTIC ARE A RUNAWAY TRAIN,’ ALEX ‘EBT’ McLEISH

1

FORMER Ibrox boss Alex McLeish has told Pedro Caixinha he must find a way to stop Celtic winning 10 titles in a row.

The Hoops take on the Portuguese coach’s team in the Scottish Cup semi-final on Sunday and go into the encounter on the back of a 40-game unbeaten domestic sequence.

McLeish believes the pressure is all on his old club to halt their momentum.

He said: “It might be difficult to control for Rangers (sic). At the moment, Celtic look like a runaway train.

“Celtic getting 10-in-a-row is not something I worry about every day.

“It wouldn’t affect my life – but certainly the diehards don’t want to see it happen.”

McLeish admitted he was interviewed for the vacant Ibrox post after Mark Warburton left in controversial circumstances in February.

The former Scotland international gaffer said: “It’s not 10 in a row they’ve got to be worried about, it’s next year and stopping seven in a row.

“That’s got to be the immediate goal.

“That’s what I said when I sat down with Rangers (sic). I said: ‘Listen, somehow you have to win the title next year by hook or by crook’. 

“I think the directors knew what I was talking about, that band of clubs who have to win every game they can. Somehow, they have to win it next year.

“It is a runaway train, but whatever Rangers (sic) do, they don’t just have to try and get closer, they have to try and win it.”
