A Celtic fan page has posted a clip of a Chris Sutton goal for the club against Old Firm rivals Rangers and a lot of Hoops supporters have been drooling over the video.
The match was played 16 years ago yesterday and was a very memorable fixture despite the 1-0 scoreline as victory for the Hoops meant that they had completed a whitewash over their fierce opponents, beating Rangers on all five occasions on which they met in 2003/04, per thecelticwiki.
Was this Sutton's best goal for the club?
However, that record seemed under fierce threat as the game remained 0-0 until the 90th minute when a goal kick by the Celts managed to end up at Sutton’s feet. The centre forward tried an audacious chip from at least 25 yards out which caused the Hoops faithful to erupt as it landed in the back of the net, via thecelticwiki.
Here is how some Celtic fans reacted after seeing the tweet:
On This Day – 2004. Chris Sutton scores a 90th minute chip against Rangers to seal the bhoys 5th victory of the season over their rivals.

Has ever one goal captured such brutish strength and determination as well as such poise and class? One of the top three goals I ever witnessed. Genius @chris_sutton73
