Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has revealed that there is no hard feelings anymore between himself and pundit Chris Sutton, who was critical of the Scottish keeper earlier in the season, according to a report on the Daily Record.

Sutton was openly critical of some of the performances of Gordon for Celtic but the shot-stopper has revealed that after meeting the pundit face to face, they have no hard feelings.

The goalkeeper believes that ex-Celtic player Sutton was right to highlight some of his errors and used it as motivation to improve.

I’m not confrontational. I don’t go looking for trouble or anything. I wouldn’t have said anything towards him and, yeah, he was perfectly pleasant.

I’m not saying he is 100 per cent wrong. Some of the things he said were right. I just think it was a little bit over the top at that time. At that moment in time I felt it was unfair. He has been pretty fair since and if there has been something he has commented on it has been right.

Celtic’s number one believes that his side can prove many of their doubters wrong in the second half of the season after a wobbly end to the first half of the campaign.

The Hoops lost their 69 match domestic unbeaten run to Hearts in a thumping 4-0 defeat, but have reacted well during the busy Christmas schedule, with the players currently away now on some warm weather training in Dubai.
