CELTIC will be crowned Scottish champions for the sixth successive time on Sunday – or should that be seven.
Brendan Rodgers's side have swept all before them this season and are on course for not only the Treble but also to go threw the domestic season unbeaten.
Their feats have impressed bookies and Scots firm McBookie have decided to pay out on six in a row and seven in a row on the same day.
In effect they have decided there will be no title race next season with not even Rangers under new boss Pedro Caixinha closing the gap significantly. And nearest challengers Aberdeen are resigned to losing four or five of their best players including Niall McGinn to Bolton or Sheffield United.
Celtic were 1-10 to win the 2018-2019 title and the Scots firm says they'll be paying out tens of thousands of pounds a year or so early to help fans get in the party mood.
McBookie.com spokesman Paul Petrie said: “We have thousands of bets on Celtic to win the league in 2018 and we can't see anything but that happening. In fact only a fool would back against them.
“On Sunday we will pay out for six in a row and for seven in a row. Celtic will win the title with their eyes shut until Rangers get stronger and if they don't make it seven in a row I'll do the Pamplona bull run next year with Pedro Caixinha.”
A spokesman for Rangers said: “Seven in a row – might as well make it 17. We're a work under progress and it could be slow going.”
