Video: Sutton Says Rodgers Won’t Like Gerrard Arrival & Tips Celtic to Spend Big

Chris Sutton has claimed Brendan Rodgers won’t like seeing Steven Gerrard arrive in Glasgow as Rangers manager, and has tipped Celtic to respond in a big way in the transfer market.

Former Liverpool and England skipper Gerrard was paraded in-front of jubilant Gers fans at Ibrox earlier today after signing a four-year contract to take his first senior role in club management, and he’ll be doing battle against his former coach.

Of course, Rodgers was manager at Anfield when Gerrard was captain, and the two are known to still enjoy a close relationship – with Gerrard previously linked with a swansong at Parkhead towards the end of his playing days.

Despite saying all of the polite things in public, Sutton reckons Rodgers won’t be best pleased behind closed doors, and insists the Northern Irishman will demand a transfer war-chest of his own this summer:

There’s absolutely no denying this’ll be one of the most fascinating Old Firm duels in many years – but does Gerrard stand any chance of coming out on top?
