Celtic have set a new British record by extending their unbeaten run to 63 domestic games.

They defeated their own 100-year-old record with a 4-0 win against St Johnstone in Saturday's Scottish Premiership fixture.

Scott Sinclair opened the scoring in the first half before late strikes from Moussa Dembele, Olivier Ntcham and a Steven Anderson own goal.

The Parkhead side held the previous record of 62 games, which they achieved between in the 1910s under the guidance of first manager Willie Maley.

His side went 62 games without defeat between November 1915 and April 1917, including two games played on the same day against Raith Rovers and Motherwell.

They will have to more than double their run if they are to take the world record, however, as Steaua Bucharest won all 106 domestic games between 1986 and 1989.

Celtic started their run in style on May 15, 2016 with a 7-0 win over Motherwell which featured seven different scorers.

Second-half substitute Jack Aitchison, 16, then made history by becoming the club's youngest debutant and he celebrated in style, scoring with his first touch to make it 7-0 to the Celts.

They have netted 183 times over the 63 games and conceded just 35. There have been 21 different Celtic goalscorers over the course of the run.
