FORMER Rangers star Stuart McCall has warned his old club they will have to spend big to stop Celtic heading for a record-breaking 10 successive league titles.
The Bradford City manager was at Ibrox when the team claimed six in a row – as the Hoops will undoubtedly do this season with their 19-point and a game in hand advantage.
McCall said: “Stopping nine and 10 consecutive championship wins has got to be the target.
“We can talk about youth structures and progression, which you’ve got to do. But, if Rangers do happen to stop Celtic before they get nine or 10, there will have to be a huge financial input. That’s obvious.”
“It’s a massive worry. No, I don’t think about it all – just every waking minute of my life!
“Going back to when we did nine in a row, when we got to five and six, the Rangers fans started singing songs – just like Celtic fans are singing them now – about nine and even 10. Each season, it will build and build. And everyone will be aware of it.
“I’m just hoping they’ve got a transfer war chest somewhere, building and building – so they can go and buy Messi and Ronaldo to stop Celtic!
“No, all kidding aside, it’s natural if you are a Rangers-minded person that you should fear Celtic getting there.
“And, if you are a Celtic-minded person, that’s the dream for you, isn’t it? To go and smash it.”
