Chris Sutton praises David Moyes for accurate Celtic assertion

Chris Sutton has praised West Ham United manager, David Moyes, after the Hammers boss defended the size and stature of Celtic Football Club. The English club’s head coach was asked if new Tottenham Hotspur coach Ange Postecoglou would feel the pressure now that he’s left Scotland for the Premier League.

There’s always a tendency for people outside of Scotland or those who genuinely don’t know the magnitude of our club, and more often than not this can lead to very ignorant aspersions being cast and poor opinions formed. The English media are forever bashing Celtic due to the poor standard of the Scottish Premiership.

Always being told we are smaller than teams like Leicester City and Brighton and Hove Albion, the compete nonsense that is espoused down the road defies belief at times. They have a consistent tendency to equate money with history, trophies and stature, of which there is very few teams in England that could hold a candle to the Hoops.

David Moyes responded to this question about Ange Postecoglou feeling the pressure by assuring the journalist in Australia that Celtic are one of the best supported club’s in the world, and that the Greek-Aussie boss won’t find anything much more intense than his last two years at Paradise. You can read all about that right here on The Celtic Star too.

Celtic legend Sutton responded online to Moyes’ comments by commending the former Celtic full-back for his truthful retort to the question of pressure. Keeping it simple he wrote on Twitter: “Spot on this from David Moyes”. I think we can all agree with Chris on that one!

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.
