Chris Sutton is continuing his Celtic spin campaign – he’s now backing them to cede the title to Rangers and use it to their advantage.
The Light Blues are closing in on title number 55 to put paid to Hoops dreams of 10-in-a-row and it could be secured in embarrassing fashion.
If the Old Firm rivals both win this weekend then the Gers can wrap up the trophy at Celtic Park on March 21, something that will act as a huge motivation for Steven Gerrard and his charges.
But writing on his personal Twitter profile Sutton said it could be the best thing for Celtic.
He said: “Losing the league at Celtic Park may not be that bad a thing… suffering the ultimate humiliation and hurt may just give the powers that be the kick up the [swear] and incentive to react strongly.”
Sutton expanded on this in his Daily Record column: “Celtic handing over the title on their own soil to Rangers would not be a bad thing.
“It might actually bring home the seriousness of the situation facing the club right now.”
You can’t catch us
Are we supposed to be scared, Sutton?
We’re not exactly quaking in our boots at the thought of a Celtic resurgence.
The difference between us and them is currently 18 points and this could be extended further before the campaign’s conclusion.
It has been a huge swing of power and the levels we have set have been astounding.
We can’t see how the difference can be made up next season.
Gerrard is building a dynasty at Ibrox and has brought a winning mentality that shows no signs of subsiding.
The Gers are still yet to taste defeat in the Premiership or in Europe with our only defeat this season coming in the League Cup to St Mirren.
Dream on Sutton and buckle in for an era of Light Blues dominance.
