Chris Sutton plays down Rangers Invincibles achievement in Celtic swipe
Chris Sutton has tried to belittle the achievement of Rangers after a 4-0 win over Aberdeen on Saturday confirmed an unbeaten Scottish Premiership campaign.
The ex-Celtic striker has been a vocal critic of his former Old Firm rivals for a number of years, often taking shots at the Light Blues on social media or through his role as a television pundit.
He was at it once again shortly after Steven Gerrard’s side won emphatically at Ibrox to ensure an outstanding record of 38 league games unbeaten this season.
He wrote on his personal Twitter profile: “Incredible achievement by Steven Gerrard and Rangers.
“The League Invincibles. Just for the record though the real Invincibles were Brendan Rodgers Celtic 2016/17… well played though…”

More misery for Sutton
It’s been the theme for the season – Rangers record a success and Sutton tries to best to besmirch it.
Ally McCoist has had him ‘on toast’ for the whole season, with the former Gers hero ridiculing Sutton for his constant attempts to undermine the side.
Just when you thought he might be about to concede defeat and offer up some deserving praise, he refuses to relent.
Sutton did tweet his congratulations to the Light Blues, calling it an ‘incredible achievement’, but he did so with a side serving of bitter Celtic comments.
He called the 2016/17 Celtic side under Brendan Rodgers the ‘real Invincibles’, claiming we should only be called ‘league Invincibles’.
The fact of the matter is, we’re both invincible, and ours might be even more impressive given Celtic had little competition during their victorious campaign.
We’ve had to battle back from the brink, so we won’t stand for any silly comments trying play down our tag.
Invincibles are what we are, and we won’t shut up about it, rightfully so.
