Ibrox legend delivers brutally honest verdict on Chris Sutton punditry
Ibrox legend Mark Hateley has been brutally honest and revealed that he isn’t a fan of former Celtic striker turned BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton.
The former striker, who won six league titles in two spells at Rangers, has admitted that the controversial style adopted by Sutton just isn’t for him.
“Controversy makes stories and it makes people’s viewing,” Hateley said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“Many people have said to me about Chris Sutton – I wouldn’t have a clue what Chris Sutton says because I don’t listen to him.
“A lot of people do and it riles them up but that’s what makes good radio and good TV. How long that lasts for…”
It remains to be seen if Sutton has any response to Hateley’s comments, but as he is no stranger to feuds, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he had something to say.
Hateley, who joined the Light Blues from Monaco, scored 113 goals in his time at Ibrox, and was a big part of the side which almost reached the Champions League final in 1993.
As well as winning many league titles in his time in Glasgow, he also won three Scottish Cups, two league cups, and was named Scottish player of the year by his fellow players and football writers in 1994.
Hateley would have been impressed with the current Gers side which defeated St Johnstone 4-1 on Tuesday night, for their fifth straight victory.
The win also saw them cut the gap on league leaders Celtic to six points, with the Old Firm set to collide at Ibrox on March the 11th.
