Chris Sutton has not held back in his pre-match comments when the subject of Brendan Rodgers came up. Viewers had just watched Chris Sutton interview Neil Lennon where he fired all kinds of uncomfortable questions at the interim boss.
Right after the interview, the question about Lennon getting the job on a permanent basis came up with the Premiere Sports panel. Sutton was pro-Lennon for the Celtic job and full of admiration for what the Lurgan man has done since his appointment. Chris Sutton stated,
“Neil Lennon has a better win record than Brendan. Brendan Rodgers is a Judas, he turned his back on Celtic”
Rodgers found an unlikely ally in one Alastair McCoist, who seemed truly aggravated by Sutton’s comments. Both pundits trashed out their views but Sutton had no interest in backing down, despite Rodgers success as Celtic manager.
