Chris Sutton takes thinly-veiled swipe at Rangers after Aberdeen chief demands apology

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has taken a thinly-veiled swipe at Rangers after Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne demanded an apology for their statement about Derek McInnes.

The Light Blues made an approach to appoint McInnes as their next manager last week but after six weeks of trying to find a successor to Pedro Caixinha, they were snubbed by the loyal Dons boss.

In reaction, the Glasgow side issued a statement that has been blasted by fans of both Rangers and Aberdeen after it basically claimed that they did not want McInnes anyway.

Now, BT Sport pundit Sutton, who constantly aims digs at Rangers, has claimed that Milne and McInnes should not hold their breathe over the Gers making an apology about their statement, suggesting that they will not even blink an eye-lid to what the Aberdeen chief has demanded.

“Yes but I suspect it could be a long wait,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Monday night, quoting a news story about Milne’s call for an apology.

Rangers have been on the hunt for a successor to Caixinha for over six weeks and after missing out on their main target last week they have confirmed that Graeme Murty will continue in interim charge until at the end of December.

Murty led the Gers to two wins in a week against Aberdeen to see them rise up to second in the Premiership standings, just five points behind leaders Celtic.
