Former Celtic striker and Scottish football pundit Chris Sutton took to Twitter to give a salty response to Rangers’ derby day domination of the Parkhead club.

Despite Rangers’ commanding performance the pundit couldn’t resist taking a dig with Celtic missing several first-team stars.

The ex-Chelsea and Blackburn striker sent a Tweet saying “Well done Rangers thoroughly deserved win against Celtic reserves…”

The Parkhead club were missing the likes of Odsonne Edouard, Ryan Christie, Hatem abd Elhamed and Nir Bitton through Covid-19 related issues.

The toiling Parkhead club were also without the likes of James Forrest and Christopher Julien through injury.

But there was still a wealth of players from the Celtic Park side’s considerable squad with a multi-million-pound team put out to play the Gers.

It was certainly anything but the Celtic reserves – even if the squad was depleted – and the Parkhead side struggled to cope with Rangers’ imposing game plan.

It was a thoroughly deserved victory and if anything, shows up Celtic’s risky, high-cost transfer strategy in recent years with this super squad turning out to be quite ordinary.

Sutton’s salty response wasn’t missed by Rangers fans who gunned for the former striker in the aftermath of the result.


Rangers ran out comfortable winners at Celtic Park courtesy of a Connor Goldson double with the big defender scoring a goal in each half to send the Gers four points clear at the top.
