Chris Sutton aims thinly-veiled dig at Rangers after Glasgow derby win v Partick
By Will Butcher
Chris Sutton has aimed a subtle dig at Rangers after they inched past Glasgow outfit Partick Thistle thanks to Joe Garner’s injury-time winner.
Garner struck in the 94th minute to earn a 2-1 win at Firhill Stadium after Barrie McKay had equalised with only seven minutes of normal time remaining on the clock.
Former Celtic striker Sutton posted on his personal Twitter account that the clash was a “competitive Glasgow derby”, as the Gers edged closer to second placed Aberdeen.

Sutton is no stranger to ridiculing Old Firm rivals Rangers following six-year spell with Celtic during his playing career.
However, the Gers have not done themselves any favours by losing five of their six Old Firm derbies this season, which has included two 5-1 drubbings at the hands of the Bhoys.

His latest dig emphasises the gulf between the two sides, as the Gers struggled to beat Partick while Celtic are cruising past Pedro Caixinha’s side when the two rivals meet.
Rangers are next in action on Saturday against Hearts on Saturday, as they look to keep the pressure on second placed Aberdeen with their 18th league win of the season.
However, the Gers will have a battle on their hands after losing two of their three encounters against Hearts this season, winning only one outing 2-0 in December.
