Former Scotland striker Kevin Gallacher thinks that going for 10 in a row might be stagnating the careers of Celtic’s Scotland internationals.
Gallacher thinks that a move abroad could benefit the likes of Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney.
“Is the challenge to win a quadruple Treble or make it ten-in-a-row? Maybe it is” he told the Scottish Sun.
“But you can’t help but become stagnant playing the same clubs five or six times every season.”
“Could be the answer”
“Is six European group games every season or two enough for them? Being tested at another club in a bigger league could be the answer.”
It is unlikely that Celtic fans will be impressed with Gallacher’s comments. However, he may have a point when it comes to the bigger picture.
Boredom may have contributed to Rodgers’ exit
Being bored with Scottish football could have been one of the reasons that Brendan Rodgers decided to leave Celtic for Leicester.
And playing abroad or in England could certainly help the likes of Tierney and McGregor develop as players. However, that is not what Hoops fans will want to hear.
Especially when 10 in a row is potentially only two years away.
It will be interesting to see if the Hoops would consider selling the likes of Tierney or McGregor in the summer if some huge bids came in.
You would imagine that they would be rejected. But would the same rules apply after 10 in a row has been clinched? Only time will tell.
