Celtic were crowned Scottish Premiership champions for a ninth successive time last week after the SPFL board cut short the season due to the pandemic.
It’s not come without it’s controversy, however, despite the Parkhead giants holding a 13-point lead with only a handful or so matches still to play.
Former central defender Gareth McAuley ended his career at Rangers in 2018/19 and has spoken out about the title claiming it is ‘tainted and hollow’ to which legendary striker Chris Sutton has ripped into him on Twitter, causing plenty of Bhoys fans to be in hysterics.
Deary me…Gareth McAuley “l certainly wouldn’t be celebrating “… unfortunately for him he never did get the opportunity… https://t.co/N6DccT1Gqc

Sutton won four Scottish Premiership titles during a six-year reign in Glasgow and now does punditry on BT Sport.
McAuley goes on to explain that the title winners can’t be compared to the original nine-in-a-row winners or Rangers’ version from the 1990s.
And it hasn’t gone down well at Celtic Park, here’s how fans have reacted to Sutton’s tweet…

Another bitter ex who didn’t even win a match against Celtic maybe that’s got something to do with it.
