CHRIS SUTTON has slammed the unruly gathering of raging fans outside Parkhead after Celtic’s shock Betfred League Cup exit yesterday.
The Hoops lost 2-0 to Ross County to surrender their spectacular unbeaten sequence of domestic Cup-ties that had seen them win their previous 35 games while lifting four League Cups and three Scottish Cups.
There is the opportunity of the club’s TWELFTH successive piece of silverware when they meet Hearts in the delayed Scottish Cup Final at Hampden on December 20 which would complete the phenomenal quadruple treble.
However, that meant little to the furious crowd who camped outside the club’s ground last night which prompted former Parkhead goal hero Sutton to brand them “self entitled a**es”.
The baying mob called for Lennon to be sacked as manager and for the board to resign.
Sutton was left disgusted by some of the footage which has been shared on social media as the one-time England international branded those responsible a disgrace.
He blasted: “The people protesting outside Celtic Park can’t call themselves Celtic fans.
“True Celtic fans wouldn’t be singing despicable songs about a man who has given the club the service Neil Lennon has.
“They are a disgrace. Self entitled a**es.”
Celtic have won just two of their last 10 games, conceding a bewildering 23 goals in the process, and now trail Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox outfit by 11 points in their quest for a tenth successive title. They still have two crucial games in hand.
They toppled out of the Champions League when they were beaten 2-1 by unseeded Ferencvaros in Glasgow in September and exited the Europa League last week when they were walloped 4-1 by Sparta Prague for the second time in three weeks.
Their next game is a meaningless encounter with AC Milan in the San Siro on Thursday night before they return to play St Johnstone at Parkhead in the league on Sunday.
