Fans react on Twitter to Sutton's comments about Boyd after humiliating Rangers defeat
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton has hit back at Kris Boyd for previously stating that Celtic’s 5-1 win against Rangers was close – and fans on Twitter have agreed with Sutton’s comments.
For the second time this season, Brendan Rodgers team inflicted a 5-1 defeat on their Old Firm rivals, with the previous win coming in Septemeber at Parkhead.
During that time, former Gers striker Boyd felt that the defeat at Celtic’s ground was a close affair as Sutton reminded him of his comments after they won by the same scoreline on Saturday.

It has been a season to forget for Rangers fans, who had high expectations at the start when they earned promotion in the summer.
They struggled to keep up with their Glasgow neighbours, who steamrolled to the Scottish Premiership title and were crowned champions by early April.
During the campaign, Joey Barton’s contract was terminated in December, Mark Warburton left his role in February and his replacement has since lost back-to-back derbies.
In other Rangers news, Scott Sinclair has told a Gers fan that there is no need as he has hit back.
