Celtic have just made British football history with 4-0 win over St Johnstone

The Hoops haven't been beaten in 63 games — beating their own record set in 1917

A convincing Celtic victory is what we have come to expect from every weekend.

But the Hoops’ emphatic 4-0 win away to St Johnstone was more than just another three points, it was one of the most significant wins in British football history.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have now played 63 consecutive domestic games without being beaten, surpassing a record that stood for a century.

As you can see, no expense was spared when it came to the celebrations…

The previous longest undefeated streak in British football was 62 games — achieved by Celtic in 1917.

Goals from Scott Sinclair, Moussa Dembele, Olivier Ntcham and an own goal from Steven Anderson ensured Celtic’s record-breaking result.

The historic streak has included 56 wins and just seven draws.

Celtic have scored 183 goals in the 63 games and have kept 36 clean sheets.

Some may belittle the achievement by claiming that the club have no significant opposition in Scotland but whichever way you look at it, breaking a 100-year record is a phenomenal achievement.

Congratulations to Brendan Rodgers and everyone at Celtic.

The question now must be, how many more games can they remain undefeated?

Is a century on the cards?
