WWE Champion Drew McIntyre says he won’t ‘hear the end of it’ if Celtic do the unbelievable and win ten-in-a-row this season, The Scottish Sun reports.
McIntyre, who won the WWE’s most significant belt at Wrestlemania earlier this year, is a native of Ayrshire and also a massive Rangers fan.
He has now ordered Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard to win the league this season, for fear he won’t live it down if Neil Lennon’s Bhoys march to glory.
The wrestler has also revealed he is often asked about the Scottish champions in America and their chances for ten.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said: “I have started hearing more about it and people come up to me and say ‘Drew, I know you are a fan of soccer, what do you make of Celtic and Rangers this year? Will Celtic get ten?’
“I also say ‘No, they aren’t’.
“It will be exciting to watch. Everyone needs an escape in these difficult times and I am delighted football is back.
“My mate supports Celtic and if they win it, I will never hear the end of it.”
Unfortunately for McIntyre, there is no real evidence to suggest Celtic won’t go on to make history this season.
Our form may not have been blistering in the early stages of the campaign, but we’ve dropped fewer points than the Ibrox side and have been consistently winning matches.
Much will rest on games like next month’s derby, but hopefully, Lennon’s team are just warming up.
We also know they have the mentality to win league titles, something Gerrard’s team has been lacking for years.
I reckon the only championship McIntyre will be celebrating for a while is his own WWE crown.
