Robbie Savage has denied he is ‘anti-Celtic’ during an exchange with former Bhoys striker Chris Sutton this week.

The former Leicester City and Wales midfielder was speaking after watching Manchester City draw 1-1 with Everton in the Premier League.

Speaking on BT Sport Score he mentioned that if City play like they did against Everton and Celtic v Barcelona in the Champions League this week, they will be dealt a hammering.

But in doing so he was challenged by Sutton, who commented on how good Celtic played in their 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the last Champions League matchday.

Savage stated:

“City will feel that’s two points dropped. Defend like that against Barcelona, Celtic scored three against them in the previous game, Barcelona will score six.

“I’m not anti-Celtic but if Celtic can score three against Man City?

“Vincent Kompany is back on the pitch, that is a huge bonus for Manchester City.”

Celtic are back in Champions League action tomorrow, taking on German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

With Barcelona looking rampant and City still heavily tipped to go through, it could be these two teams are battling for third place and going into the Europa League.

But Savage’s claims are not exactly anti-Celtic. The facts are that Celtic earned a 3-3 draw with City and lost their game with Barcelona 7-0.

Rather than being anti-Celtic, he was simply being pro-Barcelona.
