BRENDAN RODGERS has now gone 45 league games unbeaten since taking over as Celtic manager in May 2016.

However, the Irishman is still well short of equalling Willie Maley’s outstanding record which was set between 1915 and 1917.

It started with a 2-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Parkhead on November 20, 1915 and continued through the entire 1916 campaign.

Ironically, it was the Rugby Park side who brought the astonishing run to a halt when they reversed the 2-0 scoreline on April 21, 1917 in Glasgow.
