Celtic will wrap up a seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership title with a win over Rangers on Sunday, and they can successfully defend their domestic treble if they see off Motherwell in next month's Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.

The Hoops have lost just three domestic games this season after going last term without a single defeat, and are once again favorites to make a clean sweep on all silverware next term.

Former Celtic midfielder Stiliyan Petrov believes the club's Scottish rivals aren't providing them with enough of a challenge, and that they can stroll to the treble for the next three seasons as a result.

Stilian Petrov of Celtic is brought down by Tomas Hunal of FK Teplice during the UEFA Cup match between Celtic and FK Teplice at Celtic Park on February 26, 2004 in Glasgow, Scotland.

“I think Celtic have a chance to win the Treble again next season," the Hoops legend told the Scottish Sun ahead of Sunday's Old Firm clash.

“In fact, if Rangers keeps going the same way, Celtic have a chance to do it over the next three years."

Celtic have won the treble just four times, with two coming in the last 18 years.

Given their recent total dominance, though, it doesn't appear anyone will be strongly challenging them for the top prizes anytime soon.

Manager Brendan Rodgers and his players are head and shoulders above their counterparts in the country, and it remains to be seen if Rangers, Aberdeen or Hibernian are be able to rival such level of quality for the time being.
