Chris Sutton: BT Sport Biography

The former Blackburn and Celtic striker is a co-commentator and pundit across BT Sport's live football coverage.

Chris Sutton is a football co-commentator and pundit for BT Sport.

The former Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea and Celtic striker is a staple of our live Ladbrokes Premiership and Betfred Cup coverage, with his hard-hitting views often leading to entertaining verbal (and physical!) jousts with colleague Stephen Craigan.

He is also a regular on the BT Sport Score sofa, helping keep fans across the latest Premier League action every Saturday afternoon - and doing his best to wind up Robbie Savage at every turn.

Chris features prominently in our live Premier League and FA Cup coverage, as well as providing co-commentary and insight on Celtic's adventures in the Champions League and Europa League.

He moved into the media after a 17-year playing career that yielded 193 goals in 535 appearances in all competitions and one England cap.

Having coming through the ranks at Norwich City, he became the most expensive English footballer of all time when he moved to Blackburn for £5 million in July 1994 after scoring an impressive 25 league goals for the Canaries in the preceding campaign.

Rovers' investment paid off immediately as Chris starred alongside Alan Shearer as one half of the feared 'SAS' strikeforce that propelled the Lancashire outfit to the title in 1994/95.

He added the Golden Boot (joint winner) to his list of achievements in 1997/98 before sealing a £10 million switch to Chelsea in 1999.

An unhappy season at Stamford Bridge ensued and he was soon off to Celtic, where he won eight trophies in a goal-laden six-year stint in Scotland.

Chris then hung up his boots in 2007 after accomplishing the rare feat of playing for bitter rivals Aston Villa and Birmingham City in consecutive seasons.
