Chris Sutton takes subtle Twitter dig at Rangers during defeat against Dundee
By Harvey Byrne
Chris Sutton took a subtle dig at Rangers during their 2-1 defeat against Dundee on Sunday after asking what the scores in Scotland were.
The 43-year-old was acting as a pundit during Blackburn’s FA Cup tie with Manchester United at the same time, but it is highly unlikely that he would not have had access to the scores given his presence on social media and the technology available in 2017.
Additionally, it is very much doubtful that he would have posted the same message had Rangers been winning.
The Ibrox giants, currently led by Graeme Murty went in at half time at Dens Park two goals down following goals from Mark O’Hara and Kevin Holt.
The sixth placed side were unable to score after the break, while Joe Garner’s second half strike made the scoreline semi-respectable for his side.

But, Sutton, who was accused of being obsessed by Robbie Savage on Saturday still took to Twitter to rub the salt into the wounds of those associated with Rangers.
