Chris Sutton has a pop at Rangers' current status

By Amir Mir

Chris Sutton has had a pop at Rangers’ current status by claiming that Scottish Championship side St Mirren are the “second best team in Scotland”.

The former striker, who has had a lot to say about the Gers this term, couldn’t help but repeat the same words echoed by Bhoys manager Brendan Rodgers in March.

After Celtic had beaten the relegation-threatened Championship side 4-1 in the Scottish Cup quarter-final, Rodgers stated that the Saints were the best team his side had faced.

Rodgers was either mocking the state of Scottish Premiership football or simply delivering high praise of his opponents.

BT Sports pundit Sutton issued this response to a supporter, who asked whether St Mirren would find themselves in League One next season.

“Second best team in Scotland [St Mirren],” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account. “So, no way [are they getting relegated].”

In terms of status, both Rangers and Celtic supporters would argue as to who is the bigger club, but there is no doubt that the latter is on top at this moment in time.

They recently clinched the Scottish Premiership added with the fact that they have not been beaten on the domestic circuit this term.

The SPL table suggests, as have performances, that Derek McIness’ Aberdeen are the second beat team in Scotland.

The Dons, who were beaten by the Gers last Sunday, are on 64 points from their 32 matches, nine points ahead of Pedro Caixinha’s team.

In other Rangers news, this senior players career seems to be over after Pedro Caixinha decision.
