JOHN HARTSON reckons Celtic will make history by winning 10 successive titles – if they can keep Brendan Rodgers.

The Hoops will seal their seventh successive Premiership crown on Sunday if they beat Rangers at Parkhead.

And former Celts hitman Hartson believes the team will not be caught as long as Rodgers remains in the hot seat.

Hartson said: “Ten-in-a-row is going to happen. That’s a stonewaller.

“The only way that doesn’t happen is if Brendan Rodgers decides to leave Celtic, some of the players go with him and they bring in manager that’s not as good as Rodgers.

“If you bring in a Pedro or if you bring in a Delia then that could happen and they could stop it.

“Celtic are riding the crest of a wave, they are in the ascendancy on and pitch and off the pitch they are levels above.

“They have secured £60million in the last two years through Champions League campaigns, they have assets at the club, they get full houses every week, they are used to winning.

“Alright, they’ve drawn a few and lost a few this season but that was always going to happen. The expectation just went through the roof last season with the Invincibles.

“I played in a great team and we lost games, we had Henrik Larsson and Chris Sutton playing up front and we lost games.”
