Chris Sutton has delivered a brutal putdown of Rangers attacker Joe Garner when the former Celtic player was defending his Team of the Week selection.

The BT Sports pundit had selected Partick Thistle striker Kris Doolan in his side after the 30-year-old had scored the winner against Motherwell at the weekend.

One supporter questioned Doolan’s selection, with Sutton stating “he has more goals than bookings” clearly aiming the comment at Garner.

The 28-year-old has scored eight goals in all competitions for the Gers this term, whilst he has also been in the referee’s book on ten occasions.

Here is former Premier League winner Sutton mocking Garner, an unwanted record that would amuse the Celtic faithful.

“Check him out,” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Another important goal at the weekend for Thistle and he has more goals than bookings this season.”

Experienced attacker Doolan has scored 12 Scottish Premiership goals in 31 matches this season which has helped his side to seventh in the table.

By contrast, Garner, who made a transfer switch from Championship outfit Preston to Ibrox in the summer, has only scored five goals in the league this term.

He last found the back of the net during his side’s 1-1 draw with Motherwell at the start of this month, but as proven in his last fixture, he has discipline issues.

Pedro Caixinha’s side beat second-placed Aberdeen 3-0 away from home, with Garner being booked in the first-half after his head to head with Dons player Ryan Jack.

Despite his constant bookings, Garner has never been sent off this season as he will be looking to avoid seeing red as the Scottish Premiership season draws to a close.
