Rodgers targets ‘remarkable’ unbeaten record with Celtic

Brendan Rodgers says it would be a “remarkable achievement” for Celtic to complete an unbeaten league season.

Rodgers’ men thrashed Partick Thistle 5-0 on Thursday and must avoid defeat by Hearts on Sunday to finish their title-winning campaign without defeat.

“We matched 33 wins, which is the most wins in the history at Celtic,” Rodgers told BBC Scotland.

“We go one behind in the record for goals. Now we’re on to 104. So, we’ve got everything to play for.”

Celtic are looking to become the first team to go a 38-game Scottish Premiership campaign unbeaten.

They have gone unbeaten in a season once before, in 1897-98, winning 15 of the 18 games played. Glasgow rivals Rangers followed suit a year later, winning all 18.

Leigh Griffiths, who would later appear to question being substituted, scored Celtic’s opener at Firhill from the penalty spot after Patrick Roberts was fouled by Callum Booth.
