Chris Sutton winds up Ally McCoist in Rangers title snub

Chris Sutton reckons he got the better of an Old Firm exchange with Ally McCoist after claiming a fit James Forrest would have propelled Celtic to the title over Rangers.

Speaking on BT Sport Scottish Football Extra [18:00, 16/04/21] Sutton spoke about how injuries have cost the Bhoys this season.

“Maybe a fit James Forrest and Celtic would’ve got to 10-in-a-row, Christopher Jullien as well, Celtic have been severely hampered this season by injuries to big players,” he said.

Ally McCoist wasn’t having any of that. He responded: “Ah come on! Maybe if you had wee Jinky and Kenny and Big Little you’d have won it as well, come on!”

Sutton burst into hysterics, “We got a whopper… Incredible,” he said.

He followed this up with a tweet that simply read “I caught a whopper,” followed by a fishing rod emoji and laughing face.

Smirky Sutton can’t help himself

You could see right from the beginning of the exchange that Sutton was desperate to get one over McCoist and Rangers.

Unfortunately, Ally got sucked into that one and fell for Sutton’s trap – he just wanted to wind up Gers fans and deflect attention away from his own side’s failings.

He can’t really think Forrest would have completely changed Celtic fortunes that they would close a 20-point gap?

He’s a decent player but he’s no Lionel Messi, or Ryan Kent for that matter…

All clubs suffer big injuries, we’ve had it with Ryan Jack who has missed 22 games since November 26.

Nikola Katic has yet to step foot on the pitch for Steven Gerrard’s side this season so that’s been yet another loss.

Some of us just get on with it, others wallow in self-pitying contempt.

We know which side we’d rather been on of the divide.
