CELTIC have lost only once to Scottish opposition during actual playing time in their last SIXTY-FOUR games.
The Hoops completed this campaign with an unbeaten sequence of 47 matches under Brendan Rodgers.
However, with Ronny Deila in charge, they were defeated only once in a regulation game in his last 17 outings before he made way for the Irishman in the summer.
The Parkhead outfit went out of the Scottish Cup semi-final 5-4 on penalty-kicks to Sevco Rangers in April last year, but the result in the record books show it as a 2-2 draw after extra-time.
The last time domestic opposition actually turned over the Bhoys during the allotted playing time was on May 11, 2016 when St Johnstone triumphed 2-1 at McDiarmid Park.
Celtic went into that encounter on the back of an unbeaten run of 15 games.
A goal from Graham Cummins 13 minutes from time gave the Perth outfit the points, but Deila’s men had already wrapped up the club’s fifth successive championship two games earlier with a 3-1 victory over Hearts at Tynecastle on April 2 – ironically the same opposition, venue and date as this year’s title triumph.
The last Celtic team to lose in actual play was: Bailly; Janko (sub: Ralston 74), Ambrose, Sviatchenko, Izaguirre; Johansen (sub: Bitton 66), McGregor; Roberts, Allan (sub: Rogic 80), Christie; Griffiths.
