Even from deepest Lapland Chris Sutton couldn’t resist a chuckle at the delusions from Ibrox.

BT Sport’s top pundit was absent from the action at Easter Road on Wednesday as the league leaders rolled into town with Simply The Best blaring on the team bus.

After another 90 goal-less minutes Celtic were a point clear at the top of the SPFL table with Brendan Rodgers’ side having a game in hand.

James Tavernier is always good for some upbeat quotes with the former Wigan ace well versed in disappointment from his three seasons at Ibrox.

In the Daily Record Sutton reflected:

The challenge from Ibrox is real, although I had to laugh when I caught up on the game from Easter Road in midweek.

James Tavernier talked about teams desperate to knock you off when you are top of the league. Come off it James, you were up there for six days this year, not six months.

Fair play to Rangers for getting to the summit but the reality is they have been fortunate Celtic have been so inconsistent this season and have carried so many passengers.

A Celtic win today over Dundee will put the hoops four points ahead before Cap’n Tav leads his warriors out at the red hot atmosphere of McDairmid Park, Perth.

If Aberdeen win at home to Hearts and Kilmarnock win away to Hamilton Steven Gerrard’s side will be in fourth place when tomorrow’s match kick’s off.
