Chris Sutton hits back at Rangers fans after Celtic draw
By Harvey Byrne
Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has hit back at the Rangers fan base on Twitter after numerous messages from Gers supporters on social media celebrating Sunday’s 1-1 draw.
The Ibrox giants claimed a late equaliser with Clint Hill popping up with three minutes of the match left to cancel out Stuart Armstrong’s first half effort.
Hill’s strike would have felt like a winning effort to large sections of the Rangers support due to it’s lateness as well as putting an end to three straight defeats against Celtic.
However, Sutton took a swipe at the Gers support on his personal Twitter account on Sunday afternoon, suggesting that it is a sign of how the club have fallen if they are now celebrating draws.
A lot of abuse tonight! And I'm pleased a draw is giving so much joy to some???? But not sure what celebrating a draw shows?? Tell me????⚽️????

However, the Gers were demoted in 2012 to the Scottish Third Division after entering administration.
They have since won three promotions with this season marking their first back in the Premiership.
Not many expected Rangers to challenge Celtic once again head of the season, but many will be hoping they can soon put an end to the Hoops’ dominance.
