Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has delivered a smashing jab at one of our rivals on Twitter this week, as the fallout from the recent derby match at Celtic Park rumbles on.
As you’ll know, midfielder Ryan Christie was hit with a ban from the Scottish FA this week for an adjudged grab on Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.
It prompted a furious response from the Hoops with captain Scott Brown and manager Neil Lennon both coming out to slam the decision.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard was also asked about it, but deflected into an answer about a general approach people should take with officiating and disciplinary problems, stating to Sky Sports there’s no reason to get the ‘violin out’.
It was a comment taken by some fans to be a dig at the Hoops, given the comments were made so soon after statements from our camp criticising referees.
Sutton has now skewered the former Liverpool star on Twitter, responding to a report from the Daily Record in which Gerrard complains about the treatment of Alfredo Morelos.
Is that a violin out?? https://t.co/WDscWoD04m

Sutton has been a vocal critic of the striker writing in his weekend column felt his gesture towards Celtic supporters was completely out of order.
Clearly he feels Gerrard is being a bit hypocrite by complaining so hard while suggesting there is no reason for others to do so.
It’s fair to say the outspoken pundit’s comments have gone down well with some Celtic fans, with this lot taking to Twitter to share their thoughts over the last 24 hours…
Yer gonnae need a bigger boat 🤣🤣🤣 🎣

Gerrard is a bottler of the highest order and will keep his losing streak going this year. Celtic live rent free in his head, that he can’t hide 😂😂💚💚
