Chris Sutton aims a sly dig at Rangers after confirmed managerial appointment
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton has aimed a sly dig at Rangers after Lee Clark left Scottish club Kilmarnock to join Bury.
Bury confirmed on their personal Twitter account that Clark has left his post at Kille to join the struggling League One side.
Former Celtic striker Sutton stated that it was nice to see an “amicable and smooth parting of the ways” aiming the dig at the Gers for their handling of the Mark Warburton situation.

Rangers announced on Friday that Warburton and his backroom staff had resigned from their jobs, only for the trio to deny that they had handed in their resignations.
BT Sports pundit Sutton posted this message about Clark’s departure as he was sounded out by a supporter for his comments.

At this moment in time, the Gers are without a manager as a number of names, including Alex McCleish and Aberdeen boss Alex Mcinnes have been touted to replace Warburton.
The Glasgow-based club are struggling in the Scottish Premiership this term after their former manager guided them to the top tier during the previous campaign.
They are currently third in the table on 43 points from their 23 games, level with second-placed Aberdeen, who have a game in hand on their rivals.
However, more disappointingly for the supporters, they are 27 points behind their unbeaten Old Firm rivals Celtic, who are set to run away with the SPL title in record fashion.
