Neil Lennon's Celtic lock horns with Steven Gerrard's Rangers on Sunday - will the League Cup go to Celtic Park or Ibrox?

A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to slam BT Sport pundits Chris Sutton and Stephen Craigan for their combined Celtic and Rangers XIs ahead of the Scottish League Cup final.

Sunday sees the Glasgow rivals lock horns at Hampden Park in a bid to bring the first major trophy of the season back to either Parkhead or Ibrox, and build-up to the match has been plentiful.




Both pundits deemed Celtic to have more players worthy of a combined XI than Rangers, with Craigan picking six of the Hoops contingent and five of the Ibrox team, while Sutton had just three Rangers players in his XI.

Nonetheless, neither pundit included Callum McGregor in their line-ups, and quite a few Celtic fans were not impressed to say the least on social media:

McGregor has made 30 appearances for Celtic in all competitions this season, including starting all 15 Scottish Premiership games for Neil Lennon's side, and along with his great all-round play, he has also scored five goals and claimed three assists (Transfermarkt).

Celtic are hoping to kickstart a 'quadruple Treble' by getting their hands on the trophy on Sunday, while Rangers are eager to get their first major trophy for a number of years as well as Steven Gerrard's first in charge of the Ibrox outfit.
