'Get the rat out' - Chris Sutton fires astonishing blast after Rangers reports
By James Black
BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton has launched an incredible blast at the leak in Rangers’ dressing room – believed to be Kenny Miller – and insists Pedro Caixinha should sack “the rat”.
Before Friday night’s 4-1 win over Hamilton, the main talking point was Miller’s future at Ibrox following a series of claims that he had leaked details of a fiery team meeting to the Daily Record’s Keith Jackson.
Miller was subseqently missing from Rangers’ squad to face Accies amid reports he had been banished to the Under-20’s and it appears that the veteran striker’s Ibrox career could now be over.
Speaking before Caixinha’s side faced Hamilton, former Celtic striker Sutton didn’t hold back his views on details of the private meeting making their way into the public domain.
“The dogs may be barking at the caravan but there’s a rat inside,” Sutton said during the broadcast, with BT Sport sharing video of it on their official Twitter account

“Something has to give now.
“If he knows who the rat is he should sack him. There is absolutely no doubt about that it just has to happen.
“When you have a private meeting at a footballl club it should stay in the dressing room.
"That person can't want Pedro at the club…Get the rat out!"

“The person who leaks the details of that meeting, what was his desired outcome? The desired must have wanted to cause problems for the manager.
“That person must not want Pedro Caixinha at the football club so find out who he is and out him. Get the rat out.
“What chance does he have as manager if he has a traitor in the dressing room?”
Despite going a goal down after 56 seconds, the Gers rallied with three goals in six first-half minuted as a double from Declan John and Daniel Candeias’ strike gave the Light Blues a 3-1 lead at half-time.
Graham Dorrans made it 4-1 from the penalty spot minutes after Ryan Jack had been dismissed for a second bookable offence.
The win takes the Gers into third in the league ahead of the rest of the weekend’s fixtures and will surely serve as a big confidence boost after last weekend’s Old Firm defeat to Celtic.
Caixinha now takes his side across the Atlantic to face Portuguese giants Benfica in the Eusebio Cup in Hamilton Ontario on October 6th.
In other Rangers team news, a Sky Sports pundit has sensationally claimed that Caixinha could be axed.
