Chris Sutton reckons injury to Celtic right-back Hatem Abd Elhamed is an advantage for Rangers in the Scottish League Cup final

Rangers and Celtic will face off in the Scottish League Cup final at Hampden Park next month, and the Old Firm duo will be looking to make a statement with a victory.

Neil Lennon’s men are keen to win a fourth consecutive domestic treble, while the Light Blues have a lot to prove following an impressive start to the season.

It’s the first time Rangers will be playing in a cup final since 2011, and the first Old Firm final since 2016 promises to be a huge clash.

Celtic will be without right-back Hatem Abd Elhamed for the game after he picked up a knock in their Europa League win against Lazio in Italy, and club legend Chris Sutton reckons the injury blow hands Rangers a huge advantage.
