Only one man, the legendary Billy McNeill, has lifted more trophies as Celtic captain in the club’s long, illustrious history than Scott Brown.
Brown claimed his 11th major honour as a Celtic player at the weekend and his 9th as captain of the club.
Quoted by The Scotsman, he now reckons that his side can go on and win every single game this season, such is the belief in the squad.
“We want to win everything. I’ve always wanted that, but now I actually believe we can win every single game we play so doing the treble would be lovely.”
It’s an extraordinary level of confidence but it typifies how impressive a start Celtic have had to their domestic games – nobody in Scotland has beaten them yet. It’s an unbeaten run that stretches back 17 games, into last season, to a May defeat away to St Johnstone.
Added to that incredible form is the Hoops’ ability to shut our their opponents. The team have now played 778 minutes of domestic football without conceding a goal.
It’s no wonder that Brown believes not only can they go the remainder of their domestic season unbeaten but that they can win every game.
After seeing off Aberdeen yesterday, arguably the second best side in Scotland, it will take one almighty opposition performance to shift Brendan Rodgers’ side off of the course they’re currently on.
