Chris Sutton delivers one word verdict on Celtic in thrashing of Rangers

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has taken to social media to give his verdict on the Hoops’ 4-0 win over bitter rivals Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

“Superb” was the word Sutton used to describe the Hoops’ performance on his personal Twitter account.

The Hoops were comfortable throughout the game, and took a goal lead in the first-half, thanks to goals from Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor.

The game was then finished as a contest early in the second-half when Ross McCrorie was sent-off for a foul in the penalty box on Moussa Dembele, who dinked the penalty home in style.

The Bhoys completed the scoring when Olivier Ntcham scored the Bhoys’ second penalty of the game, and they have the chance to complete the treble for the second successive season in the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell next month.

Hoops fans will love Sutton’s comments about the game, which are 100% true. The Bhoys were determined to put on a performance, and prove that the gulf still exists between the Hoops and their bitter rivals. Brendan Rodgers’ side turned in a far better performance than they did in the recent 3-2 win over the Gers at Ibrox, and they thoroughly deserved to win the game and reach the cup final. The Hoops will be desperate for their next match to come along, and it is they game which could see them clinch a seventh successive league title with a trip to Neil Lennon’s Hibernian on Saturday.
