Celtic legend Chris Sutton couldn’t resist taking a cheeky swipe at Rangers fans on social media after their 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Ibrox last night.
The BT Sport pundit took to Twitter to congratulate Graeme Murty’s side for an “impressive” performance against the Dons, which sees them move up to third place in the Scottish Premiership table.
.@btsportfootball Rangers impressive win… 3 goals in a row!!!And for all those people desperate for Celtics run to come to an end… nearly!!! Great desire and will from Celtic to get back in it???? Good test at Motherwell ????????

The former Hoops striker’s cheeky remark is referencing the fact that Rangers have failed to achieve three successive victories at any stage this season.
Sutton also hailed his former club’s character after Brendan Rodger’s side came back from a late goal to draw 1-1 at Motherwell.
He then taunted Gers fans who are desperate for Celtic’s 66-game unbeaten domestic run to come to an end, after Scott Sinclair rescued a point for the Scottish Premiership leaders with an 88th-minute penalty.
Motherwell took the lead in the 78th minute when Mikael Lustig diverted Craig Tanner’s free-kick into his own net and appeared to be heading for a historic win, before late drama saw the Hoops snatch a point.
Meanwhile, Rangers, who are still searching for a permanent manager, responded to back-to-back defeats against Hamilton and Dundee with a convincing display at Ibrox.
Bruno Alves scored twice either side of a goal from the returning Carlos Pena, as the Gers swept aside second-place Aberdeen to move three points behind their opponents.
Murty’s side face the Dons again in Scottish Premiership action on Saturday, while Celtic face Motherwell for the third time in a week.
