Celtic legend predicts more suffering for the Rangers supporters

Chris Sutton has predicted that theRangers will suffer more results like last night’s stalemate with Dundee in the post-split fixtures. The Celtic legend watched on alongside Kris Boyd and James McFadden for Sky Sports Scotland, as Phillipe Clement’s team stuttered and ultimately flattered to deceive fresh off the back of losing to Ross County in Dingwall just a few days prior.

There has been a momentous title shift in the last few days, as Brendan Rodgers and his team look to have come alive at the correct time, peaking just as the supporters needed it most. We’ve been up and down already this season and there have been mitigating circumstances through consistent and successive injuries to key men on the Irishman’s return to Paradise.

With more stars returning now to full fitness and also looking to find top form, we are starting to appear more and more like the Celtic of old. Reo Hatate looks awesome again, despite his lengthy spells on the treatment table and with our captain, Callum McGregor, coming to the fore once again, we could really motor in the last five games of this season and make sure we end it with major silverware.

Our rivals have been enjoying the usual kid gloves stuff from the mainstream media since the Belgian manager arrived on the scene back in October, and this was only further enhanced when we lost back-to-back matches in December, with one coming at Celtic Park in a lacklustre display to Steven Naismith’s Hearts team. That was a shock to the system and the other side of city were revelling in it and certain that this would be their year for the League title.

There’s still a way to go yet, but if these past two games have told us anything about this team, it’s that they fold under questioning and it’s been quite spectacular to watch. Chris Sutton has predicted that in the aftermath of their last two results, Clement’s side will drop more valuable points as they look dead on their feet and without a definitive plan of how to escape this malaise.

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
