Chris Sutton has taken a huge swipe at Rangers owner Dave King after his sides’ 5-1 defeat to Celtic.

Celtic ran out 5-1 winners at Ibrox on Saturday to claim their fifth win over Rangers, in the sixth Old Firm derby of the season.

Scott Sinclair, Leigh Griffiths, Callum McGragor, Mikael Lustig and Dedryck Boyata all netted for the Bhoys, while Kenny Miller grabbed a late consolation for Rangers.

The defeat means Rangers have now lost to Celtic twice at Ibrox this season, and twice in two weeks, after Brendan Rodgers knocked them out of the Scottish Cup last time out.

The loss leaves the Pedro Caixinha’s side third in the Scottish Premiership, a huge 36 points behind league leaders Celtic – who are 42 domestic matches unbeaten.

Speaking on the BT Sport Score Twitter account, Sutton criticised Rangers and King heavily.

The former Celtic man said: “The owner, Dave King, he needs to put his money where his mouth is – Pedro Caixinha was dealt a duff hand really.

“It’s a shambles at Rangers they need to sort it out – Scottish football needs a strong Rangers to push Celtic, they haven’t pushed Celtic all season.

“It’s been utterly embarrassing. You need to wake up and smell the coffee Dave King.”

Sutton played almost 200 games for the Hoops and was part of three Scottish Premiership winning sides, as well as winning three Scottish Cups.

The Hoops’ 5-1 win on Saturday was their biggest away win at Rangers since 1897, when they won 4-0.
