Celebrity Celtic fan Rod Stewart believes that his club have their “work cut out” if they want to win ten-in-a-row this season.
The Hoops find themselves second in the Scottish Premiership table during the international break, nine points behind Rangers who are still unbeaten this season (via BBC Sport).
Neil Lennon’s side have also been struggling in Europe and are yet to register a win the continent on the back of their 4-1 defeat to Sparta Prague at Parkhead.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Stewart gave credit to his side’s arch-rivals and believes that it will be difficult for Celtic to do the unthinkable this season.
“I must give full credit – although it breaks my heart – to Rangers,” he said. “They are playing so well.
“We’ve got our work cut out to stop us doing ten-in-a-row. It’s going to be a real finale. I do hope the fans are back, I think the Celtic boys miss them.”
Transfer Tavern take
Celtic have an uphill battle to conquer if they are to secure the elusive ten league titles back-to-back, and it must have hurt Stewart to have to give credit to the other half of Glasgow.
That being said, the season is still young and it’s better to be in this scenario in November as opposed to March or April.
There are lots of games still to play and plenty of points still to accumulate. Lennon must make sure their trip to Ibrox in the New Year is one that ends in victory for the Bhoys.
