BT Sport pundit Robbie Savage is at it again – using Rangers to wind up Chris Sutton and onlooking Celtic fans.
The former Leicester City man has ridiculed Sutton’s suggestion that Celtic could be part of a European Super League, offering Rangers’ name as an alternative after our excellent Europa League progress so far this season.
It was reported earlier this week that some of Europe’s biggest clubs were planning a breakaway league that could see them leave their domestic competitions.
On BT Sport yesterday, former Hoops striker Sutton reckoned that Celtic should be invited.
Savage though scoffed at that suggestion, saying:
“Celtic with the greats? Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool… Celtic?
Celtic wouldn’t get a point… They’re struggling to get through the Europa League group stage.
Put Rangers in there. Rangers are going to progress in Europe, I don’t think Celtic are.”
Savage has made a habit of winding up Sutton and Celtic fans in recent months, clearly taking an interest in Steven Gerrard’s project at Ibrox.
As we know, he’s quite right to laugh at the idea of Celtic being considered alongside Europe’s giant teams, especially when they are struggling in a second-tier competition.
Rangers are back in action in the UEFA Europa League later this week when the side travel to Russia looking for a positive result away to Spartak Moscow.
