Chris Sutton ridicules Rangers on Twitter as Aberdeen end 26-year drought
By Will Butcher
Chris Sutton has mocked Rangers on Twitter by highlighting the gulf in class between the Gers and Aberdeen on Wednesday night.
Celtic icon Sutton watched on as the Gers were blown away by Derek McInnes’ side at Ibrox, thanks to goals from Graeme Shinnie and Ryan Christie which proved too much for Pedro Caixinha’s side – suffering a 2-1 loss on home soil.
And it could have been worse – Aberdeen would have scored a lot more had it not been for the heroics of goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.
Speaking on his personal Twitter account, Sutton claimed the result was less proof of the rise of Aberdeen, and more about the failings of Rangers.
Sutton mocked Caixinha and Celtic’s Old Firm rivals Rangers, saying the side “need stabilisers”.

Shinnie gave the Dons the lead with a sublime solo effort that saw him drift past a number of Gers players, before sliding the ball past goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.
McInnes’ then saw his side close in on ending their 26-year wait to beat Rangers away from home, as Celtic loanee Christie took advantage of some indecisive defending to head home.
Josh Windass’ inch-perfect pass was chipped into the net past goalkeeper Joe Lewis by Waghorn, but Caixinha’s side could not muster an equaliser.
It sees Aberdeen move nine points clear of Rangers in second place, winning their third of four clashes against the Gers this season.
