Chris Sutton has heaped praise on Rangers duo Barrie McKay and Joe Garner as they found the back of the net against Partick on Sunday.

Both McKay and Garner scored late on against the Caley Jags to earn Rangers a 2-1 win, with Garner’s strike coming in the 94th minute.

Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Celtic star Sutton gave his verdict on both players’ goals, stating Garner had “turned up” after his late flourish.

Rangers went 1-0 down in the 14th minute, as Kris Doolan found the back of the net with a header from a cross that was lobbed into the Gers penalty area.

Pedro Caixinha’s side struggled to break down their opponents throughout the match but eventually found the back of the net with seven minutes of normal time to play.

McKay controlled well before evading his marker and poking the ball past goalkeeper Tomas Cerny to equalise and set up a promising finale.

Garner then sent the travelling Gers fans into raptures by heading home deep into injury time, after great work from veteran striker Kenny Miller.

The Gers have now moved to within six points of second placed Aberdeen with the win, but Derek McInnes’ side do have a game in hand over the 54-time league champions.
