After beating Celtic 1-0 this afternoon in the Old Firm derby, Chris Sutton claims “even Rangers can’t blow it this season”
The difference in the second half was made by a Callum McGregor own goal, but his namesake, Gers goalie Allan, shone with some outstanding saves to hold Celtic at bay.
The victory by Rangers extends the men’s lead of Steven Gerrard at the top of the table to 19 points and Sutton acknowledges the race is on in the league – congratulating his former rival on winning on the day and probably at the end of the season.
It’s that. Congratulations to Steven Gerrard and Rangers, this season they can’t even blow it. Today, Celtic played well, but it is all about the outcome. This season, the difference is that Rangers have an outstanding goalkeeper and a good defense. Out of ten, nine points isn’t bad….

“That’s it,” tweeted Sutton. “Congrats to Steven Gerrard and Rangers, not even they can blow it this season. Celtic played well today but it’s all about the result. The difference this season is that Rangers have an excellent goalkeeper and a strong defense. Nine points out of ten is not bad…”
Before Nir Bitton was sent off for a foul on Alfredo Morelos as the last man, Celtic dominated the first half and parts of the second.
