Chris Sutton makes big claim about Celtic ahead of clash v Rangers

By Danny Wright

Chris Sutton has said he believes Celtic will remain unbeaten for the remainder of the season.

The 43-year-old also boasted about the massive difference in quality between his former club and that of the rest of the Scottish Premier League.

Celtic welcome Rangers to Parkhead on Sunday for an Old Firm clash in which the Hoops can prove the huge disparity between the two clubs.

They have won three fixtures against their Glasgow rivals already this season which included a 5-1 thrashing in September and a Scottish League Cup semi-final victory at Hampden Park.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are currently unbeaten in domestic football this season and have only failed to win one of their matches against a fellow Scottish side – when they drew to Inverness in September.

Asked on Twitter if he thought Celtic would stay unbeaten for the rest of the season, Sutton said, “It looks very much in bag and hard not to say yes!”

There is a massive 33 point gap between the two fierce rivals which could be made even larger by the end of the season.

Sutton made 199 appearances during his time at Celtic Park and scored 85 goals, lifting four Scottish league titles in the process.

He knows what it’s like to score in an Old Firm derby as he struck nine goals against Rangers between 2000 and 2006.

The BT Sport pundit also had spells at Blackburn, where he won the English Premier League, Chelsea, Birmingham and Aston Villa.
