Chris Sutton takes another Twitter dig at Rangers after Kris Boyd comments
By Harvey Byrne
Chris Sutton has taken another dig at Rangers, claiming Kris Boyd’s comments about the quality of football in Scotland must be due to comparing everyone with the Ibrox club.
The 33-year-old current Kilmarnock forward wrote in his column for the Scottish Sun that Celtic won the Premiership at a canter due to Scottish football being at it’s worst ever standard and that Hoops fans needed a reality check if they felt that they could make progress in Europe.
However, former striker Sutton has disagreed with the comments from Boyd and has labelled them as “nonsense” on his personal Twitter account on Sunday, claiming that the forward is comparing everyone to his “old team”, the Gers.

Many consider Rangers to have had a disappointing first season in the Premiership following their promotion in the summer.
The Ibrox giants have managed a third place finish and will be playing in Europe next season, but many wanted the prestigious club to be competing with fierce rivals Celtic at the top again and manager Mark Warburton was sacked form his role in charge.
