Chris Sutton has admitted that the Scottish Premiership title race is over after Rangers 1-0 win over Celtic on Saturday afternoon.

The away side dominated large periods of the game at Ibrox, but an own-goal from Callum McGregor handed the three points to the Bears.

Sutton did claim that the difference between the two sides was having an “outstanding” goalkeeper in Allan McGregor.


Writing on his personal Twitter account after the game, Sutton couldn’t miss the opportunity for a joke, claiming that “not even” the Gers could blow this one.

“That’s it,” he said.

“Well done to Steven Gerrard and Rangers not even they can blow it this season. Celtic played well today but it’s all about the result.

“The difference this season is Rangers have an outstanding goalkeeper and a strong defence. Nine out of ten ain’t bad mind.”


McGregor was superb and was the main difference between the sides on this occasion.

To say that is the difference between the two sides overall across the season is bitterness from Sutton though, who knows that the Bears have been incredible in every area from the opening game.

Steven Gerrard was speaking after the game, and he admitted that the only thing his side are thinking about is the trip to Aberdeen, and that is the main difference this season.

The Bears aren’t stopping until anything is confirmed, and there were no over the top celebrations at Ibrox, with the squad having a completely different mentality in the title race this time around.
