Former Celtic striker Tony Cascarino has slammed the Hoops’ historic unbeaten record, saying the achievement ‘means nothing’ as they have come up against the likes of ‘Ross County and St Johnstone’.
Cascarino spent 8 months at Celtic back in 1991, making over 20 appearances and scoring 4 goals in an otherwise failed stint at the club.
His latest comments come after Celtic recorded their 63rd domestic game without defeat, a truly remarkable feat – well, to most people anyway.
The former striker noted Celtic’s record in European football as his argument for their 63 game run meaning nothing, saying it proves they’re still not a good side overall – despite breaking the UK record with their achievement.
He told talkSPORT: “Domestically they’re so far ahead, miles ahead. But they’ve lost to Astana, who are from Kazakhstan.
“They’ve been bashed up 5-0 by PSG. OK, PSG are capable of beating any team. They’ve been beaten home and away by Bayern Munich. They’ve drawn with Rosenborg in the qualifiers.
“So it’s clear they are on a completely different level from everyone domestically but are still not a great side.
“Just look at the points total last year. It’s just so ridiculous that we can’t give Celtic too much credit.
“To justify this great run they’ve been on – well, who have they actually beaten? Beating Ross County and St Johnstone when this team’s miles ahead – it just feels this means nothing.”
Celtic can only beat who they are put up against, Tony…
