We don’t care if you’re plying your trade in Scotland, the United States, Australia, Brazil, or South Africa, that record in a league season is incredible.

The last year to see a team go unbeaten through the league season started with an 18 in front of it, with Rangers doing the trick in 1898-99. Soccer was a bit different 118 years ago.

If Celtic beats Aberdeen in next weekend’s Scottish Cup final, it will have its first domestic treble in 16 years.
