Celtic hero Chris Sutton is never shy to poke fun at the Hoops’ rivals across the city. It was quite astonishing that the team playing out of Ibrox didn’t concede a single penalty in the league, prior to being named champions, whilst they were awarded a number of spot kicks at the opposite end. It may be a new season with a fresh start for all, but Sutton hasn’t forgotten anything as he took to Twitter and gave his cheeky opening day predictions.
Good luck to all the Scottish Prem teams for the season.
Here are my score predictions for the weekend.
What are yours?
Rangers 4 (3 pens) – 0 Livingston
Dundee 1-1 St Mirren
Ross County 0-0 St Johnstone
Hearts 1-2 Celtic
Aberdeen 2-0 Dundee United
Motherwell 1-1 Hibs

As seen above, the former Celtic, Blackburn and Chelsea striker backed Rangers to win 4-0, but with three penalties helping them along the way. In terms of his Celtic prediction, he backs Ange Postecoglou to record a narrow victory on his first domestic game in charge.
His tweet has caused quite a stir with his subtle dig getting a lot of bites from fans of a certain Govan club.
Haha , Penalties, Covid, Masons, linesmen, fkn var if they couid, Celtic blaming the usual suspects as soon as things stop going their way, it’s fkn comical 😂😂 and Sutton pandering to his kind as usual,he never comments on finances, wonder why😂

You should take a spoonful of sugar, you’re so bitter. Look at things more positively; at this point in the season Celtic are still in the race. Enjoy it while it lasts.
