Legendary Celtic striker Chris Sutton reckons if Rangers give up their league title this season, as looks likely, they have suffered one of the biggest blow-ups in the history of Scottish football. 

Led by Steven Gerrard last season, the Ibrox side claimed the title with a 25 point margin from their bitter rivals who were beset by player, fan and managerial unrest. 

And Sutton points to the closed gap under Ange Postecoglou this season as a “fall from grace” from Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men. 

He told the Daily Record: “It might be a bit of mind games or Rangers fans trying to pile on the pressure, but I’ve seen some people suggest if Celtic don’t get over the line in the league it would be one of the biggest collapses ever. 

“I don’t buy it. There’s a lot of football still to be played and, in fact, I’d flip it the other way. If Ange Postecoglou can complete the job in the remaining five games and deliver the title in what everyone expected to be a transitional season, I’d say the biggest collapse ever will have come from Ibrox. 

“To turn a 25 point deficit last season in to a title win this year would be a monumental achievement for Celtic – and a huge fall from grace from Rangers when they were in a position to kick on from their success. 

“Celtic were so bad last year it looked like it might take four or five transfer windows to sort out the mess, yet look where they are now. 

“We can argue about collapses at the end of the season though. There is a heck of a lot of work to be done. 

“Don’t get me wrong, Celtic are in a strong position. Six points ahead with a huge goal difference with five games to go is a major advantage. 

“I know what position I’d rather be in.”
