Chris Sutton highlights Rangers weak links ahead of semi-final clash v Celtic
By Danny Wright
Chris Sutton has highlighted Myles Beerman and Joe Garner as Rangers’ weak-links ahead of their Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Celtic on Sunday.
The two Old Firm rivals come to blows at Hampden Park to try and book their place in the final against Aberdeen, who earned a hard-fought win against Hibernian on Saturday.
Gers announced that Beerman and Garner would start on their official Twitter account ahead of kick-off.

Beerman has been called into the first-team due to an Ibrox injury crisis, but has played well in his three appearances since his debut against Kilmarnock earlier this month.
Sutton, a former Celtic striker, thinks that Brendan Rodgers will use Patrick Roberts to expose the young full-back in the cup tie.

He has also questioned whether Joe Garner can keep his head in the latest installment of the Old Firm derby.
Garner is known to be a fiery character and, although he hasn’t been sent off, he has picked up ten yellow cards in his debut campaign at Ibrox and was suspended for the last fixture against Celtic.
“Brendan targeting Beerman by starting Roberts. Key battle,” said Sutton on his personal Twitter account.
“Garner starts but can he keep his cool?
“[Dedryck] Boyata worries me. Biggest Derby in world.”

Rangers know that if they can book their place in the Scottish Cup final, they will land Celtic with a major double blow as they look to secure the treble and an unbeaten domestic campaign.
Rodgers and his men have already won the league title and Scottish League Cup and the last remaining piece of their jigsaw would be two more victories in the Cup.
