BT Sport pundit and former Hoops favourite Chris Sutton believes Celtic have been ‘flat as a pancake’ this season and should have been punished more by Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, writing in his regular Daily Record column.

It’s undoubtedly been a roller-coaster season for Celtic.

From the transfer drama of last summer to the departure of Brendan Rodgers, negativity has framed consistent results and another credible treble push.

Sutton believes the campaign pales in comparison to the previous two under Rodgers and has taken a swipe on the eve of our massive Scottish Cup clash against Aberdeen at Hampden.

Writing in The Daily Record, Sutton said:

Let’s be brutally honest, Celtic have been pretty poor in comparison with their standards of the two previous campaigns. There has been upheaval with a manager change, in-fighting over transfer kitties and Dedryck Boyata’s apparent refusal to play,

There was Moussa Dembele’s angry departure and injuries left, right and centre with key players such as Tom Rogic, Leigh Griffiths and Kieran Tierney have missed months of the season.

Celtic have been flat as a pancake and the door was wide open for Rangers to walk through.

Have Celtic relied on the failings of Steven Gerrard and his squad to get the job done this season, as suggested by Sutton?

That would be a harsh assessment in my view.

The Hoops have been exceptionally consistent since the return from the winter break, despite a change of manager, unbeaten in domestic action and drawing just two matches.

Our season will ultimately be decided by what happens over the next six weeks, but we are on the brink of another historic achievement and despite off the field drama, you can’t take that away from the team.

Do you think Celtic will secure another treble this season? Share your thoughts in the comments below…

  • A very big yes, Celtic will win the treble treble, and I know we have not been great this season, but how many Scottish clubs could have had as many players injured, and still kept at the top!.? Yes Chris Sutton may be having a pop, but let’s look at it from the treatment room!!!. Sevco were never near good enough to catch us, but the Scottish press, through thier blue coloured specs, could not see by ibrokes!!! What a shower of Middens!. I hope the egg was very hot when it hit them in the face!. Even now the press ( free mason club) are still writing sevco up before Celtic!. They are out of contention for the league, they are out of the Scottish cup, and they are out of Europe, a very long time ago!!! And still the free mason boys write them up, up , and up! Can anyone see them coming yet?? NAW!!! Hahahaha

  • I don’t expect it to be easy against hearts in the final but the fact of it being a possible treble treble should bring out the best in the team. Hopefully we can avoid injury to our key players because if you put Hearts best squad up against our best squad you’d have to be confident of winning. Chris makes a number of valid points in his article. We have not been at our best enough this season but what does that say about our challengers
