    Chief Executive: Congratulations to Brendan and his history-makers

    By: Newsroom Staff on 04 Nov, 2017 17:01

  • CELTIC Chief Executive Peter Lawwell has congratulated Brendan Rodgers and his squad for making history by going 63 consecutive domestic games unbeaten.

    The 4-0 victory over St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park ensured that the current Celtic team beat a British record that was set 100 years ago by Willie Maley’s Celtic side, with the win today their 56th in this incredible run.

    Speaking to the official Celtic website, the Chief Executive said: “I would like to congratulate Brendan, his backroom team and our players on this extraordinary achievement and on writing their names once again in the history of both Celtic and British football.

    “So many people have been part of this fantastic effort and, as well as Brendan and the players, I would like to thank and congratulate everyone at the Club, all our staff who do such a great job and, of course, our supporters who have been such an important part of this wonderful record - they are all part of the wider Celtic team.

    “It is fitting that, as we are about to celebrate 130 years since the Club's formation, we have reached such a milestone. To break a record which has stood for around 100 years requires something special and this record has been characterised by a very special and relentless pursuit of quality and success.

    “Celtic's rich history features so many giants, including the great Willie Maley who previously held this record. Brendan and our players have once again shown why they will also go down as Celtic greats.

    “As a Club we always aim to be the best and we will continue to do all we can to keep reaching new heights and give our fans a team and a club they can be proud of.”
