Chris Sutton silences John Kennedy after humiliating Rangers-Celtic clash

Chris Sutton has told John Kennedy to keep his mouth shut after his claim that Celtic were the best team in Scotland ahead of the Rangers clash.

The latest instalment of the Old Firm is on Sunday in the Scottish Cup fourth round at Ibrox, and it has got plenty of people talking.

Sutton insisted that silence was key this week after the Bears have romped the Scottish Premiership by 20 points with ease.

Speaking on BT Sports Scottish Football Extra, Sutton admitted that it has been a humiliating season for the Hoops.

“I can’t believe he said it,” he said.

“I know that people are saying that he was asked the question, the best thing John Kennedy could have done is just keep his mouth shut.

“This season Celtic have been humiliated on the pitch, Rangers have waltzed the league, you have to take your hat off to them.

“Don’t say anything.”

Humiliation.

You know it is a shocking claim to make when even Sutton comes out and savages your comments going into an Old Firm game.

The former Celtic man usually takes every last opportunity he can to fire at the Bears, but even he couldn’t get on the side of his old club on this one.

Borna Barisic fired back at those claims on Friday, and it appears as though all they have done have fired up the Light Blues squad even more.

Kennedy will be left red-faced should he leave Ibrox after being thumped on Sunday, and he has already started digging himself a big hole.
