Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has admitted that he recently spoke to Chris Sutton after what he thought was an unfair barrage of criticism from the always opinionated pundit.
Gordon revealed that conversation between the two was perfectly cordial and since then Sutton’s comment have been more constructive.
“He was perfectly pleasant” Gordon said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“I’m not saying he is 100 per cent wrong. Some of the things he said were right. I just think it was a little bit over the top at that time. At that moment in time I felt it was unfair.
“He has been pretty fair since and if there has been something he has commented on it has been right.
“Hopefully, that’s the end of it and if I am there to be fairly criticised, then that’s fine.”
Gordon, who has been a mainstay of the Hoops team since he joined the club on a free transfer in 2014, hasn’t only been criticised by the BT Sport pundit this season.
Celtic fans have also been critical of the 35-year-old, particularly his performances in the Champions League group stages where the Hoops conceded 18 goals in six games.
However, this hasn’t stopped Brendan Rodgers from maintaining Gordon as the Hoops’ number one, and the goalkeeper was in fine form in the recent goal less draw with Rangers.
His miraculous save from a close-range Alfredo Morelos header helped to earn the Hoops a point in a game they could have easily ended up losing.
Gordon and his team-mates are currently in Dubai as the Hoops continue their winter break. They return to action when they begin their defence of the Scottish Cup against Brechin on the 20th of January.
