The former Celtic striker is celebrating his 45th birthday today, but won’t spend it alongside family as he gets involved in BT Sport’s coverage of Chelsea against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge later.
He’s also not taking a break from Twitter to celebrate it, as he couldn’t resist a response to fellow BT pundit Savage earlier after receiving a funny birthday wish from the Welshman.
Happy birthday @chris_sutton73 , this year please please try and speak a bit of sense and stop talking about rangers all the time 🤡

As you can see from the interaction on the tweet, Rangers fans are enjoying Savage’s message.
But Sutton couldn’t let it sit – and instead hit back at Savage with a dig about Rangers apparently knocking him back at the end of his playing career:
Thanks Rob for the advice…Surprised you are so pro Rangers after you offered your services and they didn’t want you when they were in Div 2👍 https://t.co/PUYLfF3L1s

Even on his birthday, Sutton and Savage can’t resist having sly digs at each other.
No doubt it will continue tomorrow when Rangers go up against rivals Celtic at Ibrox hoping to end their bad run of form in the fixture.
If they do, we reckon Savage will have something to say about it.
