Chris Sutton let rip at his Daily Record colleague Barry Ferguson after the latest Demolition Derby.

On Friday morning the former Alloa boss explained how Giovanni van Bronckhorst had sussed out Ange Postecoglou, apparently ‘big Ange’ only has a Plan A.

At yesterday’s media conference Postecoglou brushed aside the claim, admitting that his Plan A is just to keep on winning.

In Ferguson’s world his old team-mate Giovanni van Bronckhorst has Plans A, B, C and D, after losing 3-0 to Celtic in February the Dutchman had sussed out his counterpart in the Celtic dug out.

Once again Celtic were 3-0 up by half-time, despite losing Kyogo Furuhashi in the first minute Plan A worked well with two goals from Liel Abada either side of an incredible finish from Jota.

The icing on the cake came I the 78th minute when petrified goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin rolled the ball to David Turnbull who slipped the ball into the net.

Six matches into the season Celtic are five points ahead of their city rivals and are 17 goals better off.

    I’ve copied a post I put on another Tim site below rather than try to explain my elation again! And GOOD ON big Chris Sutton.

    “OH, to see the new huns shown up for what they are, with huns in black trying, but failing, to beat honesty.
    Beautiful, just BEAUTIFUL.
    Ange Postecoglou and all your squad, THANK YOU.
    I never expected to see another MHAN like Jock Stein in charge at Parkhead, not in my wildest dreams in my own lifetime. But I do believe I have.
    THIS is what it means to be CELTIC!
    Hail! Hail!
    An anthem for Ange…..
    Ven-itez ador-amus
    Ven-itez ador-amus
    Ven-itez ador-amus
    Ange-Post-e-coglou ?”

    What really surprises me is with the absolute total in-depth knowledge Barry Ferguson has of the game, and his obviously unequalled ability to read other managers, is why oh why does wee Barry not have a job in management of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City or United?
    Some people just keep showing themselves up and embarrassing themselves at every opportunity!
