The former Celtic striker is the highest profile pundit in the Scottish game- out to be knocked down with every opinion that he shares.
In the build-up to the final he went out on a limb to warn James Tavernier that failure at Hampden would add to his reputation as a serial loser. Likewise for Steven Gerrard he’d become the nearly manager.
Having a viewpoint results in incredible online abuse for Sutton, on-air he lives with the jibes from Robbie Savage, Ally McCoist and Alex Rae with ease. You need to be sharp to out-muscle Sutty.
In February Neil Lennon was drafted in to rescue a possible collapse, he did it with strong man-management, delivering the treble with someone else’s squad and earned the job on a permanent basis.
Some celebrated Lennon getting the job permanently as if it was a trophy success, Sutton has heard it all before and will no doubt be getting it in the neck again from the usual suspects.
And they are still coming…
