Chris Sutton has used social media to take a swipe at Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack for his challenge on Stevie May at Pittodrie on Sunday.
The Light Blues midfielder was sent-off for the fourth time this season after he followed through on the Aberdeen striker as both men challenged for the ball in the second-half.
Jack has had two of the red cards rescinded and Graeme Murty has indicated that the club have not yet decided if to appeal this latest sending-off.
However, Sutton, speaking on his official Twitter account, claimed that Jack was completely aware of putting his studs into May’s leg, despite praising the Gers for their performance.
He said: “Good win for Rangers yesterday. Jack off and on for a world record of red cards! Don’t understand the debate he knew what he was doing!!!”

The 2-1 win at Pittodrie – the Gers second against Aberdeen in a week – has moved the Ibrox side into second place in the Scottish Premiership table, ahead of the Dons on goal difference.
Danny Wilson’s looped header made it 1-0 before Josh Windass added a second after the Jack sending-off.
Frank Ross pulled a goal back but Graeme Murty’s side managed to hold on.
Speculation is mounting that Rangers’ upcoming match against Ross County at Ibrox on Saturday will be the first under the management of Derek McInnes, with Express reporter Bruce Archer reporting on his personal Twitter account that an approach for the Aberdeen manager will be made this week.
