Celtic fans have questioned Chris Sutton why Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick wasn’t selected for his team of the week, with members of the Hoops support raving about how well the shot-stopper played.
The former Bhoys striker revealed his team on his personal Twitter account, and revealed that seven Celtic players had made his side.

Despite Alnwick making some great saves against the Hoops – which kept the score down to 5-0 – Sutton elected to choose Hamilton goalkeeper Gary Woods instead.
One Hoops fans disagreed with the selection of Woods though, claiming that the Gers goalkeeper had kept the scoreline ‘on the right side of humiliating’, with another fan claiming that the goalkeeper prevented the score from reaching double figures, which is a bit of a stretch.
Here are some of the best reactions from Hoops to Alnwick’s omission from Sutton’s team of the week:
Alnwick must have been in contention for the Keeper spot @chris_sutton73 – kept the scoreline on the right side of humiliating?

From the highlights of the games I've seen from the weekend i have to say Alnwick had a good game even after losing 5 goals, he stopped it being 8-9 🤔 and maybe Whittaker instead of pc plod 🙄😚 Ajer over O'Connor, MacGregor over everybody 👏 the kid was outstanding

Rangers GK kept the score down yesterday with 3 really good saves, could and should have been 8-0.

Alnwick hasn’t played often for the Gers this season, as Wes Foderingham has been their usual number one, but with Foderingham’s shoulder injury Alnwick should end the season in goal for the Ibrox side.
The only other glaring omission from Sutton’s team seems to be Callum McGregor. The Hoops midfielder turned in his usual combative display against the Ibrox side and scored his second goal of the month against them, following his strike in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
