CELTIC legend Lubomir Moravcik was a major part of the Hoops team that won 103 points in season 2001/02.
The cavalier outfit also claimed 94 goals as they swept all before them.
Moravcik believes the current side are destined to make their own history under the astute guidance of Brendan Rodgers.
With 58 points amassed so far this term and only two dropped, the champions look to be ready to smash the record that was established under Martin O’Neill.
Slovakian maestro Moravcik said: “The key thing is confidence and if you have that then you find that you have so much momentum.
“It is not just that Celtic have been winning, but winning with a certain swagger in the majority of their games.
“They look so much better than everyone else and when you have that ability along with the belief then you become a very hard team to stop.“I haven’t seen too many games, but I go on and watch them on YouTube to catch up and I have been really impressed with the manager. Very quickly, he seems to have got his message across about how he wants the team to play and I think that is always the sign of a good coach.”Celtic have not won a Treble since O’Neill’s time, but Moravcik has insisted that there is no envy on his part at the potential chance of the current team to follow in the footsteps of the 2000 team.

Jock Stein’s team won two Trebles, but O’Neill’s men have been the only Celtic side in the modern era to celebrate a clean sweep.

Moravcik added: “When we won it back then we knew that it was very unusual. We knew that it had not been done for a very long time and there was lot of us who felt very proud to be a part of it.

“Players such as myself and Henrik Larsson, Tom Boyd, Paul Lambert and Jonathan Gould had been at the club when there were lots of difficult days. I think then to be there when we won three cups was special.

“We really knew that it was something to enjoy. I loved to be a part of that, but delivering them for the supporters was good because they had not always had it easy.

“This team will feel the same.”
