CHRIS SUTTON demonstrated his wicked sense of humour when he acknowledged Steven Gerrard’s team’s Veolia Trophy triumph.
The Ibrox outfit picked up the award last night after their 2-0 victory over Nice which was coupled with their 2-0 win over Lyon on Thursday.
That earned Gerrard his first honour as Govan gaffer after two barren years following taking over the reins at the club after quitting his post at Liverpool youths.
Celtic, of course, were also involved in the four-team competition, but drew 1-1 with Nice and lost 2-1 to the hosts.
Former Hoops favourite Sutton took to social media to air his thoughts about the Ibrox team’s triumph.
The one-time England international forward made a reference to the Glasgow side’s Petrofac Cup success in 2016.
Reacting to a picture of James Tavernier lifting the Veolia Trophy and said: “Can put that next to the Petroltank Cup…”
Gerrard would also do well to note that Hoops flop boss Tony Mowbray also won a pre-season tournament in his first months of his Celtic appointment.
He lifted the Wembley Cup in July 2009 after his side had beaten Egyptian champions Al Alily and Spurs. He was sacked eight months later.
