Chris Sutton has ripped into Rangers for celebrations to Old Firm win

Chris Sutton has taken a hefty swipe at Rangers for their celebrations to the Old Firm win last weekend over Celtic, as he feels they were far to over the top.

The Gers beat champions Celtic 2-0 at Ibrox in the penultimate game of the league season and beat them in both home fixtures during the campaign.

But unfortunately for them they were unable to keep pace with their rivals, who have already wrapped up the top-flight title and face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final for another domestic treble.

Rangers end their season away to Kilmarnock on Sunday and six points separates them to champions Celtic.


Pundit Sutton has let rip at the Light Blues for their reaction to last weekend’s victory and is quick to remind them they have gone another season without silverware.

“Rangers are celebrating like they’ve won the World Cup when the reality is they have won sod all,” Sutton wrote in the Daily Record.

“Last weekend’s victory against Celtic was the equivalent of a consolation goal yet we’ve seen all this nonsense about Glasgow being blue.

“It’s embarrassing. I would be ashamed to hear that guff if I was part of a squad that failed to win the league and got bundled out of both cups.”

TBR’s View:

Rangers knew that the season was over last weekend when they faced Celtic, but that wasn’t going to stop them enjoying an Old Firm victory and most importantly it sent out a message.

Steven Gerrard’s had a mixed first campaign in management, but the facts show his team have closed the gap on the champions and perhaps next year they can really try put together a title bid.

It’s important that they make Ibrox a fortress and it’s something that will be key to any potential success next year.
