FORMER Celtic striker Chris Sutton has hit back at his Ibrox access ‘ban’ with a subtle message on social media.
The BT Sport pundit will be refused entry to the stadium this evening for the statellite broadcaster’s Europa League coverage, as CQN reported yesterday.
Sutton was due to provide his big-match comments from the Govan club’s ground for the Hoops’ Europa League Group G encounter against Bayer Leverkusen in Germany which kicks off at 5.45pm and will be followed by Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first game in the Ibrox dug-out for their Group A match against Sparta Prague which will commence at 8pm.
However, the satellite station may now cover both matches from a deserted Celtic Park after Sutton’s latest snub.
IBROX MESSAGE…Chris Sutton’s Tweet after latest snub.
The one-time England international forward and former Parkhead manager Neil Lennon were refused access at the ground in September when Celtic had an early start in Seville against Real Betis and their Glasgow neighbours were at home to French aces Lyon.
The pair were deemed to be “security risks” by the Ibrox hierarchy.
Now after the latest block on admission, Sutton, making a reference to the club’s inclusivity initiative, simply tweeted: “Everyone anyone…”
There will be no such problem a fortnight today with Celtic at home to Real Betis while Van Bronckhorst will take his team to France to play Lyon who won 2-0 in Glasgow on the evening Sutton and Lennon were barred.
