After the absurd claim by Ibrox mouthpiece Mark Dingwall that Celtic spent £70million last season to consolidate their place as The only team worth watching in Glasgow – the lads at Celtic Bible have sent out an interesting stat.
The claim made live on Sky Sports wasn’t even challenged, but should we be surprised considering they can’t tell the difference between Erik Sviatchenko and Nir Bitton.
Celtic didn’t spend anywhere near this to secure a famous double treble and to put cost of playing staff into perspective – the starting XI on the day Celtic won the double treble only cost £12.2million.
To put that into more perspective, one of our most expensive player’s among that lot was signed over ten years ago.
Don’t let facts get in the way of a bad story though.
Team that started the Scottish Cup Final.
Total: £12.2m https://t.co/UlrFOv6nPG

So in the land of Ibroxia – the Celtic starting XI cost around one Alfredo Morelos to assemble.
£70million? Nae danger.
