Celtic captain Scott Brown reflects on Treble Treble achievement

Celtic may have kicked-off a new season of competitive action with their win in Sarajevo, but captain Scott Brown is still reminiscing about the Treble Treble achievement.

Less than two months ago, the Hoops secured a ninth successive domestic trophy by beating Hearts at Hampden Park. The victory capped off a remarkable three year period for the Hoops – the likes of which will probably never be seen again.

Brown certainly feels that way, as he spoke to the official Celtic website about the achievement.

“We’re the first club ever to win the Treble Treble, the first bunch of lads ever to do it”, he said.

“It’ll probably never be done again. The way we won it, they we performed, the way we played – we bullied teams into submissions with our play and fitness and approach.

“We played some great football throughout the run over the three years, and when the heat was on us, we dug deep and produced the results we were looking for.

“Winning it really was fantastic and a great way to cap off the last three years, at times against the odds, despite playing and performing at such a high level.”

Can Celtic win the Quadruple Treble this year?

It’s hard to imagine Celtic winning a fourth successive treble this coming season. The recent success may force some fans to dream but the reality is that winning one trophy is hard enough, never mind three.

Celtic will rightly go into each domestic trophy as the favourites this coming season but upsets can happen in one off matches. It seems truly remarkable that the Hoops have managed to navigate their last 27 cup ties without a hitch but surely that can’t last forever.

If you offered most fans a league and cup double plus Champions League group stage football then they would probably take it. The league is the most important trophy this year and success in that competition is paramount.

Anything else is really a bonus, despite what has happened in recent years.
