Chris Sutton delivers Celtic verdict as Rangers beat St Johnstone

Chris Sutton believes St Johnstone must change their style of play after losing to Rangers, despite getting a point against Celtic.

Gers enjoyed a 2-0 victory away from home on Saturday (16 September) to take some pressure off Michael Beale.

The hosts played a passive brand of football and it proved to be effective when they took a point from the defending champions in a 0-0 draw at Celtic Park on 26 August.

Sutton told Sky Sports, “They didn’t lay a glove on Rangers. You have to carry a threat at times. They got the result at Celtic, of course. That’s going to be a problem for St Johnstone all season.”

Important win

Beale was starting to feel the heat so anything other than a win against St Johnstone would’ve seen the fans turn on him even more.

He admits that his job is safe but things can change quickly and a few bad results could see him losing his job.

However, with the backing over the summer, it’s understandable why they’ll give him some more time than they otherwise would have.
