Celtic legend set for Sky Sports gig as broadcasters ramp up Scottish football coverage

Celtic legend Chris Sutton has signed a deal to become a pundit with Sky Sports for the new season. The Englishman has been with BT Sport for a number of years but given their summer rebrand to TNT Sports, Sutton has decided to switch to their main rivals.

The move is part of Sky Sports’ revamp of Scottish Football with Sutton set to join Kris Boyd, James McFadden, Eilidh Barbour and Ally McCoist in their coverage of the new season.


Martin O’Neill signed the Premier League winner for Celtic in 2000. The ex-Norwich and Blackburn Rovers forward arrived from Chelsea in a deal worth £6m, then the club’s record transfer fee.

Sutton made 199 appearances for the club, scoring 86 times. In this time he would be a roaring success winning four titles, three Scottish Cups and one League Cup. He was a fine player with great instincts, even if he wasn’t the quickest at times. His fantastic vision, eye for goal and almost telepathic link-up with Henrik Larsson made him a key figure in that successful era.

Sutton is revered by Celtic fans for his time at the club under Martin O’Neill, where he enjoyed prolific relationships with John Hartson and Larsson. Since swapping the pitch for the studios and gantries around the UK, Sutton is never far from controversy often delivering fairly accurate assessments of clubs, managers and players that are misfiring.
