Chris Sutton has told the Belfast Telegraph that he believes Glasgow Rangers could beat Celtic in their upcoming Scottish League Cup semi-final.

Rangers are due to meet Celtic at Hampden Park on Sunday, and the last meeting between the two fierce rivals will be fresh in the minds of both sets of players.

Celtic hammered Rangers 5-1 in Scottish Premiership action last month, as they asserted their superiority over their capital rivals.

However Sutton, who has previously been critical of Rangers’ performances this season, has suggested that Mark Warburton’s side do have a chance of progressing at the weekend.

"You cannot discount Rangers because they have got some talented player," Warburton said. "They will have to defend like they haven't managed all season but is it a possibility they could win? Yes.”

Celtic have enjoyed a much better start to the season than Rangers, and remain unbeaten in domestic competition.

The Bhoys appear to have adapted well to Brendan Rodgers’ demands, and they have put in a series of eye catching displays.

Rangers, meanwhile, are still trying to adjust to playing football again at the top level - and some of their results have been disappointing.

When Rangers and Celtic met in the Scottish Cup semi-final last season, Warburton’s side ran out winners on penalties after a 2-2 draw in normal time.
