Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton believes that Ibrox has lost it’s intimidating atmosphere after his old club eased to victory against Rangers there on Saturday.
The Hoops secured a 2-0 win over their bitter rivals in the first Old Firm clash of the season with goals courtesy of Tom Rogic and Leigh Griffiths.
Brendan Rodgers’ side calmly gained three points at Ibrox after initially going into half-time goalless.
Sutton delivered the blunt truth about Gers’ famous ground on his personal Twitter account after the match, while also hailing Scott Brown for his display in the centre of the midfield.
The BT pundit said: “Ibrox does not seem intimidating anymore for Celtic… Truth is 2-0 in first gear, Scott Brown strolled it.”

Celtic’s win at the Ibrox marked their sixth win of the Premiership so far as they continue their unbeaten run in the competition and means they are now five points clear at the top of the standings.
Rodgers and his squad will be now looking ahead to their midweek clash as they travel to the Constant Vanden Stock stadium to face Anderlecht in their second Champions League group match on Wednesday.
The Hoops will understand how vital a win in the European competition will be after suffering a 5-0 loss at Parkhead to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.
