Jason Cundy aims a dig at the Celtic support, Chris Sutton hits back at his comments

By Amir Mir

Jason Cundy has laughed at the claim that Celtic are one of the best-supported clubs in the world by judging them on their lack of Twitter followers.

TalkSport pundit Cundy pointed out that the Bhoys have a Twitter following of 434,000 on their official media account, while Premier League side Stoke are significantly higher at 687,000.

This seemingly was Cundy’s apparent dig at the club and the size of their support, but the former Chelsea player was quickly shut down by Chris Sutton.

The former Premier League winner hit back by stating he is running Robbie Savage “close” with his lack of knowledge on Scottish football.

Here is Cundy and Sutton’s comments on Celtic as posted on their personal Twitter accounts:

“Celtic are one of the best-supported clubs in the world,” asked Cundy, with his comments accompanied by laughing emojis.

“Jason Cundy is judging the size of Celtic’s support by Twitter followers,” Sutton replied. “Running Robbie Savage close with your lack of Scottish football knowledge.”

The Bhoys are the holders of the Scottish Premiership and are currently managed by former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

They competed in the Champions League this season, taking a large number of supporters to away trips at Manchester City, Borussia Monchengladbach and Barcelona.

On the field, they failed to pick up a win during the Champions League campaign, but they did secure points in Germany and England.

Despite their failure in Europe, the Glasgow giants have dominated domestically this season and are yet to be beaten.

The have already lifted the Scottish League Cup and are on their way to securing the SPL title in record fashion, winning all of their matches, bar one this term.
