Celtic midfielder makes a confident prediction

Scott Brown expects Celtic to win the Scottish Premiership title for the next two seasons.

Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has told The Glasgow Evening Times that his side will win the Scottish Premiership title next campaign and the season after.

The Bhoys have won the league title in the Scottish top flight for the fifth season in a row.

The Hoops have the strongest squad in Scotland, although they could find it more difficult next season due to Old Firm rivals Rangers’ promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Brown has predicted Celtic to win the next two league titles and make it seven in a row.

"I would love to say we can make it 10-In-A-Row, but I'm not sure my body can handle it,” the Scotland international told The Glasgow Evening Times. “But the way we're going just now we can keep winning. The win over Motherwell showed the great football we can play.

"You can only beat who is in front of you and we have done that again, for the fifth year in a row. I am sure we will do that again next year and the season after."

Celtic will start next season as favourites, and they will have the strongest squad in the Scottish Premiership.

However, it should not be taken for granted that the Hoops will win it, given some of their disappointing performances and results this campaign.

The 2017-18 campaign is certainly going to be tougher, especially as Rangers will have been in the Scottish Premiership for one season.

Celtic’s main priority at the moment should be to progress to the group stage of the Champions League next season.
