Kenny blasts Rangers and Celtic as feud takes 'strange' twist after Ibrox reveal

Paddy Kenny has ripped into Rangers and Celtic over their “childish” feud after Chris Sutton and Neil Lennon were banned from working at Ibrox.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Leeds goalkeeper insisted the “petty” behaviour of the two clubs needs to stop.

Sutton revealed last week (16th September) he and Lennon, both former Celtic stars, were prohibited from working at Rangers for BT Sport as they were deemed a security risk.

The ex-striker ended up watching Celtic and Rangers’ Europa League ties from his hotel room.

There were also no Hoops fans in attendance at the first Old Firm of the season.

Kenny insisted the feud between the clubs has gone too far.

Kenny told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “I think it’s really petty. Not having the away fans for the derbies, how can you not have Celtic fans at Rangers?

“It makes the game, it’s a massive game anyway but you need those away fans there. I think they’ve got to stop this now between the pair of them.

“It’s getting really childish for me. To not let Sutton and Lennon in, surely they can have a car that lets them in with blacked-out windows. Let them in, do their job where no one can get to them.

“I just think it’s come down to they’re being petty with each other, it’s tit for tat. I just think it’s just childish, if I’m honest.

“What about the players? Are they saying they can’t send the players there now? I just don’t get it, I find it really strange.”
