Today’s Scottish League Cup final between Celtic and Rangers has all the makings of a classic and broadcaster BT Sport have been building it all up superbly.

Hours of coverage have already taken place, with it all starting at 9am this morning ahead of the 3pm kick-off.

With the pundits now in place pitchside, it’s time for former players such as Chris Sutton and Ally McCoist to face-off on all the issues at hand today.

And Sutton has wasted no time in making sure he gets the upper hand on the former Rangers man from the off.

The Celtic favourite has taken the opportunity to mock McCoist’s new ‘close to the bone’ haircut gone wrong, wearing a bald cap, much to the delight of the panel that also includes Gordon Strachan and Alex Rae.

BT Sport posted the video on social media, which you can see below.

Hopefully, Sutton is as happy and jovial come the full-time whistle, with Celtic looking to make it ten domestic trophies in a row.

Having picked up a derby victory at Ibrox earlier this season, we head into the match as favourites.

The team news is not far away now, with fans anxiously awaiting updates on stars such as Odsonne Edouard and Mohamed Elyounoussi.

If Neil Lennon can name one of his strongest elevens and them apply themselves in the manner we know they can, there should be no doubt about the direction of silverware this afternoon.

With excitement and pressure building, which team will come out on top?
