Clement’s players are “cereal losers” says supporter. Sutton’s Dingwall dig

Celtic legend Chris Sutton has reacted online to Ross County humbling theRangers this afternoon in Dingwall. The former Hoops striker was part of Sky Sports Scotland’s panel for the coverage of the Scottish Premiership clash which started at noon today and was alongside the resident pundit and perennial partisan Kris Boyd.

One Rangers fan summed up Philippe Clement’s side perfectly…

We reckon he’s talking about CHEERIOS!

Anyone fancy a bit of Rangers TV commentary…

Philippe Clement and his team were extremely lucky to go in 1-0 up at the break through a James Baldwin own goal as they hadn’t started great at all and County nearly tucked away the ball early doors, with an Abdallah Sima intervention stopping the Staggies player from finding the way to goal. Jack Butland also had to be called into action more than once as his teammates looked well off the pace following last Sunday’s Glasgow Derby match.

In all the emotion of that “moral victory”, the Ibrox club and their players must have been too busy celebrating that one in Govan as it showed today. Leggy, lethargic and not at all what the media had deemed them to be since the big Belgian coach stepped into the shoes that Mick Beale had vacated way back in October. Instead, they looked like what they are in real time – bang average, at best.

Sutton being his usual, sardonic and dry-witted self, took to social media after the match to congratulate Ross County for their hard-earned win over the media’s favourites to win the Scottish Premiership. In reference to theRangers manager’s complete and utter nonsense that he spouted after last week’s 3-3 draw, declaring it a “moral victory” for his side, Sutton decided to put on the satire as he posted: “Not even a moral victory today… well played Ross County.”

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.
