Sutton breaks silence on Ibrox ban for Thursday again

Chris Sutton has come out and savaged the Ibrox club again after the BT Sport’s pundit will not be welcome at Ibrox for yet another Europa League fixture list involving Scotland’s big two. This starter back in September when the latest Ibrox club came out and said that they could ‘not guarantee the safety’ of Sutton and former Celtic boss Neil Lennon during match coverage of the two teams’ Europa League ties.

Sutton rightly stated at the time that the club that Charles Green founded in 2012 was setting a dangerous precedent by not allowing both him and Neil into their ground to help cover the games. A very cogent and rational point raised by the Englishman for sure. When has anything like this ever happened?

Now Celtic and theRangers both play again on Thursday night, with Celtic having the earlier away tie in Leverkusen to be screened at tea time. However, BT Sport’s coverage of the two games will now have to be shown from inside an empty Celtic Park on the night because of the draconian measures put in place by the nine-year-old club from Govan.

It really is a sad day when not only have they damaged the atmosphere at the Glasgow Derby matches, they have went full totalitarian regime on everyone and banned certain media outlets and journalists from their midst. Oh, sorry, if you want to pay £25K you can have access to the stadia and interviews with the manager and playing staff. Aye right. Pull the other one!

Anyway, here is Sutton’s latest dialogue on the whole unsavoury issue, subversively mocking their phoney ‘Everyone Anyone’ smoke screen of inclusion policy…

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.
