Celtic are coming off an incredible 2022/23 season in which Ange Postecoglou led the Bhoys to a domestic treble. Now, the club is starting a new adventure under manager Brendan Rodgers, with Postecoglou moving south and accepting Tottenham Hotspur’s offer at the end of last season. 

Rodgers is an accomplished manager in his own right and already knows the Scottish Premiership, having coached Celtic between 2016 and 2019. After an underwhelming end of spell at Leicester City, the English coach returns to Celtic Park and will look to bring the team to new heights. And speaking of that, the Celtic trophy odds ahead of the 2023/24 season look quite favourably.

List of Celtic Trophy Odds

When it comes to the Celtic trophy betting odds, the Celts are considered favourites in all of the domestic competitions. Their chances in the continental tournaments, though, are almost nonexistent.

Scottish Premiership

Celtic have won nine out of the last Scottish Premiership titles - the only time the trophy escaped them in the last decade was in the 2020/21 season, when main rivals Rangers with Steven Gerrard went the season unbeaten and finished with 102 points. But despite Celtic’s massive success in recent years, they still lag behind Rangers when it comes to total Scottish Premiership titles – 55 v 53 in favour of the Gers.

The Bhoys are considered top contenders for the titles in the new season, and Rogers has already started the league campaign with two out of two wins. A triumph in the league this term – aside from the massive financial impact of playing Champions League football next term – would mean that Celtic will be just one more title away from matching Rangers’ historic record. 

Champions League

Celtic was the first British team to win the Champions League after they claimed the prize (still named European Cup at the time) way back in 1966/67 when they beat Inter Milan in the final. The Scotland club also reached the final in 1969/70 but fell to Feyenoord 2-1 in the match at San Siro.

In the 21st century, Celtic have never made it past the round of 16 in the Champions League, though. The Celts even failed to qualify for the competition's group stages between 2018 and 2022. And in the previous, 2022/23 campaign, the club finished bottom of their group after recording no wins, two draws and four losses. 

This season, Celtic are guaranteed to play in the group stages, but they would have to hope for a luckier draw – after facing off against Real Madrid, RB Leipzig and Shakhtar Donetsk last term – if they are to make it to the knockout rounds.

Scottish FA Cup

With 41 total wins in the Scottish FA Cup, Celtic are the most titled team in the competition, way ahead of Rangers’ 34 wins. The Celts have been less successful in the cup in recent years, missing out on it in the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons. They finally brought the trophy back to Celtic Park last term when they beat Inverness in the final, having eliminated rivals Rangers in the previous stage.

In the 2023/24 season, Celtic will enter the Scottish FA Cup in the fourth round, i.e in late January, with the next rounds set to be played in March and April. If the club manages to make it out of their Champions League group or reaches the Europa League play-offs thanks to a third-place finish, we can imagine Rogers prioritising the European competitions and rotating in cup matches. This may be why out of all domestic tournaments, the Scottish FA Cup ranks the lowest on the Celtic trophy odds.

Scottish League Cup

Just like with the Scottish Premiership, Celtic is the second most successful club in the history of the Scottish League Cup, with their 21 total wins falling short to Rangers’ total of 27. The Celts have been great in the competition in recent years, winning seven out of the last 10 editions. Last season, they even beat the Gers 2-1 in the final at Hampden Park. 

Unlike the Scottish FA Cup, the local League Cup starts fairly early. On August 20, Celtic are already scheduled to take Kilmarnock away in the second round of competition. If the Celts advance further, the quarter-finals and semi-finals will be played in September and November respectively, when the club will also have to worry about Champions League football. But even with the Bhoys expected to compete on multiple fronts, they remain the top contenders to the trophy.
