Chris Sutton has taken to social media to respond to an online story that Celtic ace Craig Gordon and he had ‘buried the hatchet’ after a discussion between the pair.
The Daily Record quoted the Parkhead goalkeeper as being upset with what he felt were critical comments by the former Hoops striker turned outspoken pundit, but that the pair were now fine with each other.
Sutton, using his personal Twitter account, gave his side of the story in four words: “There was no hatchet”.

Sutton hasn’t been the only person to criticise Gordon’s performances this season, with supporters also giving the Hoops number one a bit of stick, with his performances in the Champions League group stages coming under particular scrutiny.
However Brendan Rodgers has stuck by the 35-year-old goalkeeper, and was rewarded as Gordon turned in a fine display in the goal less draw against Rangers in the last league game before the winter break.
His save from a close-range Alfredo Morelos header in particular was world class, and helped the Bhoys avoid defeat against their old rivals.
Despite the good performance in the Old Firm derby, Sutton no doubt will be ready with another outspoken view if Gordon has any poor performances when the Bhoys return from their winter break to start the second-half of the season.
