Ally McCoist shares brutally honest Rangers v Celtic verdict, Chris Sutton reacts

Ally McCoist has been brutally honest in admitting that Rangers deserved to beat Celtic on Sunday afternoon.

Chris Sutton hit back and continued to cry about the performance of Bobby Madden with the whistle.

He even insisted that two players should have seen red cards, without naming them, which made McCoist chuckle.

Speaking live on BT Sports Scottish Football Extra, McCoist kicked things off with his reaction to the showdown.

“I’ve got to be brutally honest, I think Rangers were the better team and deserved the victory,” he said.

Sutton hit back and went back to his old complaints about the officiating by Madden at Hampden Park.

“Do I think Bobby Madden had a good game? Did he miss any game-changing moments?

“There should have been two players who shouldn’t have remained on the field had he applied the laws of the game properly.”

Embarrassing.

We cannot believe that this broken record is still playing.

Anyone connected with Celtic always finds an excuse when Rangers taste success against them, it is never due to the performance.

The Bears bullied their rivals off the pitch at Hampden Park, and that led to them going to extra-time and grabbing that winner.

Madden let the game flow perfectly and he didn’t let the magnitude of the game get ahead of him as he controlled it sensibly.

If the officials were just waving cards at every last incident, hardly anyone would be left on the pitch, and Sutton can continue crying.

The next Old Firm is around the corner already, and we must go in with this mentality yet again, Sutton will be praying that his friend, Madden, is not in charge, despite his solid performance.

All we care about are those three points, forget about who is in charge.
