CHRIS SUTTON has urged Rangers to CONGRATULATE Celtic on winning nine successive titles.

The former Hoops striker, who is now a top media pundit, reckons the Ibrox side should applaud their Glasgow rivals after Neil Lennon’s side were awarded crown No.9 by the SPFL.

The championship returned to Parkhead after the champions had opened up a 13-point lead at the top of the Premiership with eight games to go before football went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic in mid-March.

Steven Gerrard’s team were the nearest challengers, but dropped off the pace following the turn of the year following defeats against Hearts, Kilmarnock and Hamilton Accies and draws with Aberdeen and St Johnstone. They were due to host Celtic on Sunday, March 15 before the game went into cold storage.

Sutton insists the Govan club should do the “sporting thing” by offering a word of congratulations to Lennon’s record-equalling squad.

The one-time England international frontman wrote on Twitter: “It would be nice to hear from a Rangers representative, player, or the supporters and for them to do the sporting thing and congratulate Celtic on being the best team once again and the 9 in a row…”
Sutton added: “Well done to Neil Lennon and Celtic on 9 in a row.

“Thoroughly deserved. Serial Winners.

“Not even close once again…”
