Rangers cup final win sparks Chris Sutton 'Celtic's shadow' reaction

Giovanni van Bronckhorst got his hands on the first trophy of his managerial career at Rangers with a 2-0 win against Hearts at Hampden Park.

The Light Blues needed extra time to get past the Jam Tarts after a dull 90 minutes but the game was brought to life by a stunning long-range strike from Ryan Jack just four minutes into the additional 30.

Scott Wright almost instantly doubled the lead having surged into the opposition penalty area on the counterattack and fired low beyond Craig Gordon to put the game out of sight.

Success for Rangers often sparks plenty of reaction and of course, Chris Sutton just had to stick his nose in as he took to his personal Twitter account to have his say on the game.

“Good win for Rangers. The players showed plenty of guts and character after Wednesday night but they’ve finished the season in Celtic’s shadow once again…” Sutton said.

Do one

The first time he piped up was kind of funny, we’ll give him that. The next few times got less and less interesting and now it is just embarrassing how obsessed he is with a team he never played for.

Sutton is a former Celtic player so he understandably has a keen eye on Scottish football as a result but why doesn’t he just keep his eyes on the Hoops rather than butt in on us?

You seriously have to question what goes through someone’s head when they purposely say something controversial, knowing it will get a reaction from a large portion of people.

We don’t care what Sutton has to say quite frankly and neither will van Bronckhorst or any of the players currently celebrating at Hampden Park because they’ve managed to reach a European final as well as win the domestic cup against Celtic’s league win which are probably on par as seasons in their own merit.

In other Rangers news, Alan Hutton loved what he saw from Jack while commentating for the BBC.
