Chris Sutton predicts Rangers v Celtic
By Danny Wright
Chris Sutton unsurprisingly believes that Celtic will continue their dominance in the Old Firm derby by beating Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday.
Former Hoops striker Sutton, 44, has backed his old club to win 3-1 in the Scottish Premiership clash and put themselves eight points clear of Pedro Caixinha’s men just seven games into the season.
The ex-England international posted his predict on his personal Twitter account prior to kick off on Saturday morning.

Celtic won five of their six meetings with Rangers last season after their huge Glasgow rivals returned to the top-flight for the first time since their financial meltdown.
The last time the two titans collided was when Brendan Rodgers’ masterminded a 5-1 hammering of the Light Blues at Ibrox – a result which will no doubt go down in history for the Parkhead faithful.

Caixinha’s side aren’t helped with a defensive crisis ahead of what is their biggest game of the season so far, with Bruno Alves and Declan John both doubtful while Lee Wallace, Jordan Rossiter and Nico Kranjcar are all confirmed to be sidelined for the clash.
Celtic on the other hand have good news regarding squad fitness as Moussa Dembele and Dedryck Boyata have both returned from long-term injuries in the last week and are expected to be named in Rodgers’ starting XI against the Gers.
