CELTIC legend Davie Hay predicts Brendan Rodgers’ side will make history by claiming at least 10 consecutive titles.
The Hoops can lift their seventh crown on the bounce against Neil Lennon’s Hibs at Easter Road this afternoon.
And the former Parkhead manager and player was part of Jock Stein’s wonderful team that managed a succession of championships from 1966 to 1974.
Hay, 70, said: “Today’s Celtic team will eclipse our nine in a row. They will take it season by season and will not say anything other than that.
“However, the Celtic fans don’t sing about winning 10 in a row without thinking it is a distinct possibility.
“The song equated with Brendan Rodgers being here for 10 is sung because the supporters now feel it is a likely task.
“There is still a bit to go without getting ahead of themselves, but the way they are performing under Brendan you would never bet against it.
“Nine in a row was some achievement back then and I can’t see the cycle turning against Celtic for them not to complete 10 in a row.
“If the current side do go on to win 10 then that would rank up there with every other great achievement in the club’s history. That’s for sure.
“What they are doing already is fantastic as they are 90 minutes away from a double treble.
“The next target after that surely has to be winning 10 in a row. And after that who knows?”
