Chris Sutton hits back at Robbie Savage after his comments following Rangers draw v Celtic
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton has hit back at Robbie Savage by claiming he has “limited” knowledge of Scottish football after Rangers secured a 1-1 draw against Celtic on Sunday afternoon.
Former Blackburn midfielder Savage laughed at Sutton after the Gers snatched a late point against their Old Firm rivals.
Previously, Sutton has been critical of Rangers for their performances on the pitch and goings on off the field of play which has seen the outspoken pundit label the club as a “shambles”.

But, after Graeme Murty guided his team to a point at Parkhead, Savage couldn’t help but remind the former Hoops player of his comments.
This was Sutton’s response to Savage as posted on his personal Twitter:

“With your limited knowledge of Scottish football we saw what happened after last season’s semi-final,” said Sutton. “Don’t get sucked in. But they played well.”

Both Sutton and Savage have been embroiled in heated debates in the past about Rangers, with the latter calling the former Premier League winner “obsessed” with Celtic’s rivals.
Nonetheless, during the derby, it was Brendan Rodgers side that took the lead in the first half through Stuart Armstong.
It was a typical Old Firm encounter between the duo with a number of controversial decisions and tackles flying around.
However, it was the away team that scored late on through centre-back Clint Hill as the Bhoys dropped points on only the second occasion this term.
Academy coach Murty was in the dugout for the game with Portuguese, Pedro Caixinha set to take charge of the Ibrox club on Monday after he was confirmed as boss on Saturday.
