Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has questioned whether it was a good decision for Rangers to let go of Barrie McKay and Michael O’Halloran this summer.
The two attackers both found the net in their league debuts at their new clubs and, while Sutton didn’t make reference to him, Joe Garner also got himself on the scoresheet for Ipswich in their 1-0 win over Birmingham.
McKay, 22, scored the only goal of the game as Mark Warburton’s Nottingham Forest grabbed a 1-0 win over Millwall on Friday night while O’Halloran, 26, scored a brilliant solo effort in the 2-1 victory at Kilmarnock on Saturday.
Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has rung the changes at Ibrox this summer with nine new players signed up as a number of men that were key to the first-team last term have since left.
Sutton, 44, has hinted that the Light Blues may have made a mistake by letting go of McKay and O’Halloran.
“O’Halloran and McKay score winning goals for their new clubs. Was it good business letting them go,” asked Sutton, on his personal Twitter account on Saturday evening.
