Chris Sutton names Rangers 25-year-old in his team of the week

By Amir Mir

Chris Sutton has named Rangers defender Rob Kiernan in his team of the week after he helped his side defeat Aberdeen 2-1 at the weekend.

The 25-year-old centre-back played the full match as Mark Warburton’s side picked up a much needed three points at Ibrox.

Striker Kenny Miller had given the home side the lead after the break, before Lee Hodson doubled the Gers advantage midway through the second half.

Kiernan’s defensive partner Clint Hill was sent off in stoppage time, with the visitors pulling one back minutes from the final whistle, before they were also reduced to ten men.

The result meant the Gers are now eight points behind their Old Firm rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership and Brendan Rodgers side also have three games in hand.
