Celtic FC- Mega Star of Scottish Premier League

Filed under England, Rest of the World

Celtic FC will again be a part of UCLThe domination of Celtic FC is approaching new heights as the Scottish club won their 4th ever treble last season. Celtic have dominated Scottish Football, winning the league championship for a record 48 times, Scottish league cup 16 times, and Scottish cup 37 times over the years.

The supremacy marked a new level as “The Hoops” won their 7th league championship in last  10 years, out of which 6 are straight in a row, from 2011-12 to 2016-17. Celtic have not only won cups and leagues, but they also dominate in each and every game. Last season, the Scottish club created a record by amassing 106 points from 38 matches with 34 wins, 4 draws, and not a single loss.

The major reason for the domination is the financing that the Hoops have. They have a huge fan base spread throughout the Scotland and other parts in the world. The attendance received by each Celtic game is way more than any other club in Scotland, which leads to grossing high revenue, thus allowing the club to acquire more talented players from around the world.

The other reason for the legacy is the lack of competition in the Scottish Premier League. Last season, they did not have any competition in their record-breaking run of winning the league without a single loss. Most of the clubs are owned by small scale industries, thus having an inferior budget. This only allows them to field local players, thus decreasing competition for the star-studded Celtic’s team.

This domination of Celtic FC has both positive and negative effects on Scottish Football.

Celtic is the only team that has repeatedly represented Scotland in European Competitions. Their dominance has grossed a large number of fans from different parts in world. Their reputation plays a major part in acquiring talented players and experienced coaches from major leagues, thus helping in the development of talented local players.

Their continued involvement in European cups and Championships provides a great chance for their players to showcase their skills and talent against tough teams and at a far more bigger stage which helps  them to seek transfers to more competitive leagues.

However, Celtic’s domination over the years have embarked a lot of negativity in Scottish football. The Hoops have repeatedly secured titles, which is becoming predictable and making the league boring, which has resulted in  decrease in popularity of the league.

The lack of zest to fight for the title has marred the growth of players and other clubs in the league, which puts the Football future of Scotland in a great danger.

The mesmerizing history of Celtic in Scotland seems very pleasing, but the club has continuously failed to prove its legacy in European Competition, winning only a European cup way back in 1966-67 season. The Hoops need to justify their place in European competitions to get recognized as one of the best in the world.
