Chris Sutton reacts as Rangers beat Celtic on Sunday
Rangers held bragging rights in Glasgow yet again on Sunday as they won the first Old Firm of the season against Celtic.
Despite missing numerous big-names such as James Tavernier, and even Steven Gerrard on the touchline, Gary McAllister did the business.
It was an end-to-end clash at Ibrox and Filip Helander’s second-half header was enough to take home all three points.
Chris Sutton was of course watching closely, but his year of total torment is continuing, not that any of us care.
Writing on his personal Twitter account after the clash this afternoon, the former Celtic man shared his take.
“Good game,” he wrote. “Very even.
“Celtic the better team first half. Rangers responded well second half. Set piece goal won it but the Celtic players will rue this one as they didn’t take their chances.
“Awful feeling losing these games but all things being equal positive signs under Ange.”
Celtic may not have taken their chances, but Rangers were superb at keeping the pressure up.
Our fierce rivals had all the momentum going into this win after a couple of huge domestic wins and also qualifying for Europe alongside the Bears.
McAllister rallied the squad at half-time when things weren’t looking brilliant, and the response was superb.
The win was fully deserved, as the Bears went out and grasped the three points with both hands – something that should kickstart our season.
It couldn’t have come at a better time after a slow start and two weeks off to relish this latest Old Firm triumph – time to kick on.
