CHRIS SUTTON has urged Rangers to come out and congratulate Celtic on winning nine in a row.

The Hoops landed the Scottish Premiership crown yesterday after league directors called time on the current campaign due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

And Parkhead legend Sutton has told Glasgow rivals Rangers to do the "sporting thing" by offering a word of congratulations to Neil Lennon's team.

He wrote on Twitter: "It would be nice to hear from a Rangers representative, player, or the supporters and for them to do the sporting thing and congratulate Celtic on being the best team once again and the 9 in a row..."

Celtic ultimately ran away with the Scottish Premiership crown as they topped the table by 13 points.

And Lennon and his players still have the opportunity to land yet another treble with their Scottish Cup semi-final still to be rearranged.

Sutton added yesterday: "Well done to Neil Lennon and Celtic on 9 in a row.

"Thoroughly deserved. Serial Winners.

"Not even close once again..."

Newly-crowned Scottish champions Celtic exceeded the goal tallies of four of their previous eight-title winning campaigns despite only playing 30 of their scheduled 38 matches this season.

They had also surpassed their final points total for the second campaign in their current nine-in-a-row run.
