LISBON Lion Jim Craig reckons Celtic could win FIFTEEN successive titles.

New Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha made a lot of positive noises at his unveiling in Govan yesterday, but the Hoops great remained unimpressed.

Craig believes that without genuine and significant financial muscle, it is impossible for anyone to live with his old club.

He said: “The big problem for Brendan Rodgers is that there is no-one in Scotland who has the money to come out and challenge Celtic for the title.

“It is why Celtic can win it 15 times. I don’t think Rangers (sic) suddenly have the means to mount a challenge.

“It is a different matter in a month’s time when you are playing in a Cup, in a one-off game like that, there is always a chance.

“I watched Barca v PSG and when PSG scored I turned it over to watch Man City…we know how that ended up.”

The former right-back added: “They (Sevco) have just brought in a guy who obviously has something that the people who are running Rangers (sic) have been attracted to.

“He has had other clubs, too, so the boy has something in his make-up that they think is going to work. Whether he has the personnel to put that into operation, I don’t know.

“I also don’t know whether Rangers (sic) have the money to buy the players he would need. Now, they will have promised him money, but I would love to know where they are going to get it from.

“I anticipate that Celtic will win the title for at least the next five or six years, no doubt about it.

“You can’t turn a team round right away without financial input and I am not so sure they have got the money – or who is going to put the money up.

“I am reading between the lines here, but the boy Dave King came in and talked a good game. However, it would seem that he is back-tracking a wee bit.”
