Chris Sutton makes suggestion after Rangers midfield boost is announced
By Danny Wright
Chris Sutton has suggested that he is puzzled as to why Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has had his red card rescinded.
Jack, 25, was shown a straight red last week in Pedro Caixinha’s final game in charge of the Light Blues at Ibrox in the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.
The ex-Aberdeen ace appeared to have clashed with Killie’s Kirk Broadfoot in the dying moments of the game before the visiting defender went to ground clutching his face
And on Thursday, Sutton posted on his personal Twitter account a series of question marks next to the Daily Record’s news story about the announcement earlier in the day to hint that he has been left bemused by the Scottish FA’s decision to overrule the referee’s original judgement.

The SFA announced on their official website on Thursday that Jack had his red card overturned and that he is now available to face Partick Thistle in the Premiership this weekend, in what is no doubt a boost for caretaker boss Graeme Murty.

Jack was given his marching orders for the third time this season against Killie last week and this is the second time that the SFA has deemed his suspension as a wrong decision by the referee.
The Ibrox midfielder also saw his ban overturned for a clash with Anthony Stokes in the loss to Hibernian earlier in the campaign.
