Neil Lennon has shut down Chris Sutton’s questions about Steven Gerrard and Rangers in an interview with BT Sport ahead of tomorrow’s final.
The Celtic manager and his pundit friend sat down to discuss the game and Lennon’s second spell in charge more generally. However, the pair’s history didn’t mean that Lennon was ready to allow a teasing question from the mischievous Sutton regarding his rivals.
"Don't ask me that. It's not my place to comment on other managers."

Sutton is never far away from controversy and will have been angling for Lenny to fuel the fire ahead of the hotly anticipated fixture but the manager was too savvy and shut it down immediately.
The interview will be shown as part of BT Sport’s nine hour coverage of the Betfred Cup Final, starting at 9am tomorrow. The BT Sport team are committed to delivering a fitting finale to the first showpiece of the Scottish football season.
