Comments from ex-Celtic striker Chris Sutton on Rangers-bound midfielder Todd Cantwell have resurfaced after the midfielder moved to Ibrox from Norwich.

Rangers have announced a deal for the 24-year-old midfielder who has been given a chance to reignite his once promising career at Ibrox following a stagnant few seasons at Carrow Road.

Considered an impressive signing by Rangers, the club will be hoping new manager Michael Beale can get the best out of Todd Cantwell in the weeks and months ahead.

But whilst the club’s usual detractors argue about Todd Cantwell not being up to scratch, one ex-Celtic star in Chris Sutton has previously waxed lyrical about the player.

The outspoken pundit is usually dog whistling to conspiracists or stoking controversy for a payday north of the border but there is no drama here as Chris Sutton talks up the Rangers bound star.

Taking to Twitter following an interview with the Daily Mail, Sutton claimed that Todd Cantwell was “going places” in 2020.

It tuns out those places are the home of the tinfoil hat wearing pundit’s biggest rivals Rangers.

Chris Sutton and Todd Cantwell are both formerly of Norwich and the Canaries also reacted following Rangers’ move for the Carrow Road Academy graduate.

The montage gives an insight into the type of player Rangers are getting in the midfielder.

Todd Cantwell has also taken to social media himself and sent a particularly staunch message too which we’re sure will go down well in the Chris Sutton household.

Referring to the immortal words of Jock Wallace, Todd Cantwell has announced that he’s already “got the battle fever on”.

Todd Cantwell becomes the first Rangers signing of the Michael Beale era at Ibrox but more are expected to follow in the coming days.

Here’s an update on the club’s reported pursuit of Morgan Whittaker.
