‘Better than the Arsenal Invincibles’ – Chris Sutton makes huge Celtic claim as Robbie Savage disagrees

'Better than the Arsenal Invincibles' – Chris Sutton makes huge Celtic claim as Robbie Savage disagrees – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Celtic won the 2019-20 Scottish Premiership title earlier this week after the SPFL decided the final standings of the campaign based on average points-per-game.

The Hoops sealed their ninth consecutive league title in style having gone 13 points clear at the top of the table with eight games left, and former striker and BBC pundit Chris Sutton believes the remarkable feat is better than the Arsenal Invincibles season of 2003-04 and Leicester City winning the English Premier League title in 2015-16.

The Celtic legend reckons Neil Lennon’s men’s achievement is only up there with the Lisbon Lions’ reign between 1965-66 and 1973-74 as the two biggest feats ever in British football.

Robbie Savage doesn’t agree with Sutton, though, claiming winning nine-in-a-row in the Scottish top-flight is equal to winning the English Championship.

While nothing should be taken away from Celtic, the fact that the Scottish Premiership is largely a two-horse race means their achievement can’t be compared with winning the Premier League without defeat.

The quality of the English top-flight speaks for itself, and there is no denying that the current Hoops side won’t be a top-four team in England.
