After winning on Saturday, Celtic have now gone 63 games unbeaten in domestic competition, a streak that breaks a 100-year-old British record, set initially by the Hoops themselves back in 1917.

Brendan Rodgers’ side thrashed St Johnstone 4-0 at McDiarmid Park just days after an energy sapping performance against Bayern Munich. With the Hoops boss naming the same starting eleven as that match, Saints had no hope of keeping the champions out.
Moussa Dembele was the star of the show, netting one, setting up Olivier Ntcham and also firing in the ball that Steven Anderson put into his own net. Those three came after Scott Sinclair opened the scoring in the first half, setting the Bhoys on their way to history.
It’s a magnificent streak that shows no signs of slowing down and having bested the British record, who knows how far it can go?
Fans were of course delighted and took to Twitter to pay tribute to their heroes…
