Celtic legend takes aim at Rangers players and manager after Scottish League Cup final

Former Celtic star Chris Sutton has, on Sunday evening, made use of the opportunity to take aim at both the stars and coaching staff of long-time rivals Rangers.

The latest edition of the Glaswegian Derby, of course, played out earlier today.

The matchup saw Celtic and Rangers lock horns at Hampden Park, in the finale of the Scottish League Cup.

When all was said and done, it was the former who emerged triumphant, courtesy of a brace on the part of frontman Kyogo Furuhashi.

And on a day which saw the green half of the Glasgow divide secure bragging rights once more, one former Bhoys standout who was keen to direct a jibe or two at Rangers came in the form of the aforementioned Chris Sutton.

Never one to mince words, on the back of the full-time whistle on Sunday, one-time hitman Sutton first took aim at unnamed members of the Gers’ squad:

“It’s a lesson for Rangers. Players have shot their mouths off in recent weeks. It’s better to shoot your mouth off when you’ve won a trophy – that’s a lesson for them, maybe keep your mouth shut.”

Then, the pundit followed up with a social media jibe, too, in highlighting the lack of silverware in the trophy cabinet of Rangers head coach Michael Beale across his career to date:
