Chris Sutton makes transfer claim about Mark Warburton and Rangers

By Amir Mir

Chris Sutton has claimed that there seems to be a “disharmony” between Rangers boss Mark Warburton and chairman Dave King.

Former Celtic striker Sutton believes that the Gers hierarchy “don’t trust” the club’s manager when it comes to transfers.

Warburton purchased a number of players after promotion during the summer, with a few of those signings going badly wrong.

Midfielder Joey Barton joined the club on a free transfer but left less than six months later after a falling out following the Old Firm defeat against Celtic in September.

Centre-back Philippe Senderos also joined the club for free but the 31-year-old has only played two games for the club.

Former Premier League winner Sutton delivered this assessment of Warburton and his possible relationship with the board.

“There seems to be disharmony between the manager and the chairman,” Sutton told the Monday Night Club on Radio Five Live. “You do wonder whether Dave King is saying, actually ‘I don’t trust you, Mark Warburton to sign players because your signing over the summer were an absolute disaster’.”

Warburton’s side have found life difficult since earning promotion last season as they are currently a mammoth 22 points behind Celtic.

Brendan Rodgers side are yet to beaten in domestic competitions this term, winning 21 games out of a possible 22 in the Scottish Premiership.

Furthermore, they have beaten their Glasgow counterparts on three occasions during this campaign.

The first win for the Bhoys came at Celtic Park in September when they were 5-1 winners, they then picked up a 1-0 win the Scottish League Cup semi-final before clinching three points at Rangers in December.
