Dembele delivers amusing Twitter response to Sutton claim about Rangers
By Danny Wright
Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has delivered an amusing response to Chris Sutton’s Twitter message about Rangers chances of making a comeback in their 5-1 loss at Ibrox on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers’ side were 4-0 up when Kenny Miller scored a consolation goal in the 81st minute of the game.
Sutton, a former Hoops striker, joked on his personal Twitter account that the Light Blues were “back in it” despite the away side’s mammoth lead.
