As you know, Celtic have won six consecutive trophies. This had been achieved three times before in Scottish football, by Celtic in 1905-09, Rangers in 1963-65 and again by Rangers in 1992-94. On the latter occasion, Rangers established a new record of seven consecutive domestic trophies.
Win on Sunday and we match Rangers’ record from the (painful) 90s, but that would set up this season’s League title as a new record decider.
The 1909 Scottish Cup was withheld after crowd trouble after the Celtic-Rangers final reply ended in a draw. Celtic missed out on making it seven trophies in a row when Dundee won the 1910 Scottish Cup five days before Celtic secured the league title.
Those dark days in the 90s were hard. Celtic were an afterthought for most fo the country, a sporting irrelevance. Sunday is a chance to exorcise those dark days.
