Celtic supporters have been making all the noise in the Transfer Tavern in recent times after seeing their side match their 100-year record of 62 domestic matches unbeaten with a 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock on Saturday, a result which also keeps them top of the Scottish Premiership.

Brendan Rodgers’ men completed the domestic treble last term by winning the league, the Scottish Cup, and the Scottish League Cup, and they are already close to defending at least one of those titles by reaching the latter’s showpiece last weekend at the expense on Hibernian. And they lead the Scottish Premiership as well after drawing 1-1 with Steve Clarke’s Killy on Saturday, with Leigh Griffiths’ first half strike cancelled out by Jordan Jones’ effort on the hour mark.

And although it wasn’t the victory many of our resident Bhoys fans wanted, it did tie their 100-year-old record of 62 domestic games unbeaten, and what a huge confidence boost that could be for Rodgers’ men ahead of their testing clash with German giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League tonight.

Jupp Heynckes’ side currently sit second in Group B having won two of their opening three matches, including a comfortable 3-0 success over Celtic in their last match a fortnight ago.

And having reclaimed their place at the top of the Bundesliga recently, the German heavyweights appear to be heading in the right direction once again, and as such will pose a serious test to Rodgers and his Celtic side in Glasgow this evening.
