Former Celtic star Kris Commons admits Rangers could go on and win the Treble this season an pour a “salt mine” into their bitter rivals’ wounds.

The Gers are eleven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership and saw Celtic knocked out the League Cup shortly before brushing aside Falkirk in their own League Cup clash.

Commons conceded that there is a “definite chance” of Steven Gerrard’s side completing a domestic clean sweep this season in a campaign where “history beckoned.”

“With Rangers sitting well clear at the top of the league, and now odds-on to win one of the domestic cups, there’s a chance the Ibrox side won’t just stop ten in a row,” Commons told the Daily Mail.


“There’s now a definite chance of them stopping it by winning a Treble of their own.

“In a season where history beckoned, that would be the ultimate kick in the teeth for Celtic. Rangers could drive a coach and horses through the full thing, emptying a salt mine into the wounds of their rivals.”

The Gers have their best chance in a decade to get their hands on the title and domestic cups this season but it is still far too early to be thinking about a clean sweep.

With neither club having even started their Scottish Cup campaign, it would be ridiculous to write one off this early and simply think the other will stroll to success.

Even the most optimistic Rangers fan isn’t getting carried away yet and thinking about potential Trebles this season – but it would be a helluva way to end Celtic’s domestic dominance in recent years.
