Willie Maley’s 1917 62-game unbeaten run in domestic football (or just football, as it was back then) was matched against Kilmarnock, but as Rangers fans found out in 1998, you should never assume that just because you can match a record, you can beat it.
Tomorrow Celtic’s shot at history goes on the line at McDiarmid Park against St Johnstone, where we last lost a domestic game, back in May 2016. St Johnstone have already relieved Celtic of a couple of points this season, and will have no fears of what they face in tomorrow’s early kick off.
For Brendan Rodgers, the challenge will be to peak energy levels after an emotionally and physically draining evening against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. His players are Celtic, not Robotic, and he will know there is a very real chance of a reversal, if we are anything less than 100% prepared.
History is yours for the taking, Celtic. Bring the glory home from Perth.
