Former Celtic captain Tom Boyd has made some interesting comments about how the rest of Scottish football feels about the current period of Hoops domination.

Celtic have won the last nine domestic trophies in a row, completing a unique ‘treble treble’. He feels that there is one word to describe how the other clubs feel – ‘jealous’.

Indeed, Boyd admitted that in Celtic’s low point of the early 90s he felt jealous of the constant success Rangers were having.

“There is maybe a hint of jealousy about the success that the club is enjoying right now” he said, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

“I was around in the 1990s when Rangers were doing it and you are jealous of the success that they had. Now Celtic have got it, and we are the dominant club. We want that to continue.”

Boyd’s comments are very honest, particular when he discloses how jealous he felt during the 1990s.

It will be difficult for younger Celtic fans to remember just how poor the Hoops were in those days. Celtic struggled to finish in the top three in the league, which sounds incredible today.

However, in recent years the Hoops have made sure that those days are firmly in the past. A Boyd says, Celtic want the success to continue.

With 1o in a row only two years away, don’t expect Celtic to stop striving for success.
