Celtic fans are not fond of Todd Cantwell. That will not be news to anyone. Since the Englishman's move to Ibrox from Norwich City last year, he has been in the Scottish football headlines often and not always for his performances on the pitch. And with his latest comments, he might have given Chris Sutton some more fantastic Twitter content opportunity for the future.

As things stand, Celtic are leading the title race by three points with four games to go in the league. The Hoops also have a better goal difference and the advantage of having the last Glasgow Derby of the Premiership campaign at Parkhead.

So far this season, the Rangers have not been able to win a Glasgow Derby. They lost the first two and were lucky to get a 3-3 draw at Ibrox in the recent one, with Fabio Silva getting a questionable penalty.

Celtic will be keen to make sure that they win against the Rangers at home and end the season by winning their third league title on the trot. But Cantwell appears to believe that his desire to win is potentially greater than club captain Callum McGregor.

Celtic fans unhappy with Cantwell's latest comments

As reported by Glasgow Live, while speaking with Sky Sports, Cantwell said:

"There's a rivalry there, right? Listen, there are things which are said on the pitch and things which are said off the pitch. And, as a player, I think you should respect. I want to win probably just as much as he (McGregor) does, probably a little bit more, to be honest, because he has been up here a long time."

You don't win as much as McGregor has if you do not have a somewhat superhuman desire to do so. There is a very good chance that he might finish his career as the most decorated player in Celtic's history. And just think of how much territory that covers.

Some of the comments which have come out of the Rangers camp in recent days should only give Celtic extra motivation to go ahead and get the job done. There are four league games left and the Scottish Cup final. Let's win them all.
