Chris Sutton: This was within the rules, Rangers just have to get on with it
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton has told Rangers that they’ve just got to “get on with it” after Celtic loaned Ryan Christie to their rivals Aberdeen.
The club confirmed on their official Twitter account on Tuesday that the 21-year-old has made a switch from the Scottish Premiership leaders to the third-placed side.
Midfielder Christie could now potentially play a part in Mark Warburton’s team missing out on second-place finish come the end of the campaign, something that has upset some Rangers fans.

Brendan Rodgers side are set to clinch the SPL title in record fashion as they are yet to be beaten on the domestic circuit under the Northern Irishman this season.
They have won 20 of their 21 league games this term, including beating their Old Firm rivals on two occasions.
But Rangers, who were recently promoted back to the top tier, are looking to clinch second spot and make a possible return to Europe.
They are being chased by the Dons, who were challenging for the title last year when Ronny Deila was in charge of the Glasgow club.
Aberdeen will take on Celtic on February 1 when they have a chance to overtake Warburton’s side in the table.
