Celtic breaks 100-year-old British record as Brendan Rodgers’ side make it 63 games unbeaten

Since losing to St Johnstone on May 11, 2016, Celtic have racked up a staggering 56 wins and seven draws in domestic competition.

Rodgers has been in charge for 62 of those games and his Hoops juggernaut shows no sign of slowing up.


From the outside, people will talk about a lack of competition in Scotland but Celtic’s feat should not be downplayed.

To show this level of consistency, while juggling Champions League football, is a testament to the fitness and mentality of this squad.

Scott Sinclair opened the scoring in the first half and Moussa Dembele finished off a flowing move to seal it.

Steven Anderson’s OG and Olivier Ntcham’s late strike put the shine on a dominant display from Rodgers’ side – who head into the international break on top form.

The same can’t be said for Saints, who have now failed to score in six games – taking just one point from a possible 18.

Tommy Wright badly needs things to turn for his side and will have some work to do over the next two weeks.

The Saints boss had a selection headache with Murray Davidson, Chris Millar and Brian Easton all out.

Michael O’Halloran was only fit enough to make the bench.

BRENDAN RODGERS is running out of records to break as Celtic boss.

The Hoops set a new British record of 63 domestic games unbeaten and this was another top performance by Rodgers’ men.

They were sharper and better all over the pitch.

Saints boss Tommy Wright badly needs his side to start hitting some form.

They had one point from 15 going into this game and never looked like stopping that horror run.
