You can take the bhoy out of Celtic…

Celtic FC made history on Saturday, as they became the first Scottish team to win nine domestic trophies in a row – the treble treble. Despite the obvious disparity between Celtic and the rest of the Scottish Premiership, it’s quite the feat to maintain those high standards and not slip up in any competition for three consecutive seasons.

Former Hoops striker Moussa Dembélé, now at Lyon and being linked with a move to Manchester United, tweeted his congratulations to his old club, but could not resist a cheeky dig at Rangers at the same time.

The Frenchman tweeted: “Few weeks ago Rangers threw a party for their six wins in a row, today we celebrate making history and our 9 trophies in a row… Celtic Treble Treble winners, congrats to both clubs on their achievement.”

You can take the boy out of Celtic, but Dembélé obviously still feels a strong affinity with the club, referring to them as ‘we’ despite moving on last summer.
