As per usual, Chris Sutton has been opening his mouth on Twitter to let everyone know what he thinks. In this case, it’s with the recent incident between Allan McGregor and Kristofer Ajer where the goalkeeper supposedly kicked out at the defender. McGregor will not face a ban and Sutton has slated the SFA for their dealing of the incident.
At least there is consistency with the SFA!!!What a panel!!! https://t.co/2t9IwaSAew

Whenever there is some sort of controversy involving Celtic and Rangers, you can guarantee that Sutton will have some sort of comment on the matter. The former Celtic frontman, who won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers, has a very heavy Celtic bias and it’s not surprising in the slightest to see him having a pop at the Scottish Football Association in defence of his beloved Celtic.
The Rangers fans, though, are from pleased with comments about McGregor. Steven Gerrard after the game admitted that his goalkeeper probably should have been dismissed and the fact that he has avoided retrospective action leaves no consequences for The Hoops, so their opinion is that Sutton is sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong. That, though, tends to be a given as far as the Bluenoses are concerned.

As a rangers fan it’s a shocking decision. But browns got away with flying elbows for years so yes the precedent was set well and truly

These comments from Sutton come as no surprise to the Gers, but now that the incident is done they’ll be hoping to put it behind them and focus on Dundee after the international break.
