Paddy Power to Pay Out on Celtic winning Next Year's League Title

Early Pay-out

Paddy Power are no strangers to outrageous publicity stunts, only last month they erected a 140ft statue of Theresa May in Dover, and their latest nutty idea is up there with their best. Although the new Scottish football season won’t kick off until August 5th Paddy Power have already promised to pay up on all bets placed on Celtic to win the title. The announcement came after Celtic’s bitter Glasgow rivals Rangers were dumped out of the Europa League at the first hurdle. After the game, Paddy Power tweeted: “Sod it – we’re paying out on Celtic winning next season’s Scottish Premiership title #YouBeauty”.

Paddy Power are clearly very confident that Celtic will win their 3rd straight title and weren’t going to miss out on the chance to stir up the rivalry between Scotland’s two biggest clubs! This isn’t the first time that the mischievous Irish company has paid out early on a seemingly sure bet. Only last year they paid out $1.1m to those who backed Hillary Clinton to win the US Presidential Election. They’ll be hoping that unlike Hillary, Celtic will come out on top!
