Celtic hero Chris Sutton in disbelief as rivals send 8-complaint letter to Scottish FA

Celtic hero Chris Sutton can’t believe the latest news involving Rangers and the Scottish FA.

After being bodied by Scott Brown on Tuesday night and dropping two points in the Scottish Premiership, the Ibrox side have reportedly sent an eight-complaint letter to the SFA and held ‘constructive talks’.

“You couldn’t make this up,” Sutton said on social media today as news of the letter circulated.

The Scottish Sun reports Rangers are petty enough to have complained about the wind slightly moving the ball on the penalty spot as Lewis Ferguson equalised at Pittodrie.

They’ve also whined about the conduct of legendary Celtic captain Scott Brown and Kevin Clancy’s decision not to book him throughout the 90 minutes.

Amusingly, I doubt they’ve raised the fact their goalkeeper wiped out an Aberdeen player in the first half, which should have led to the opening goal from the penalty spot.

Nor will they have brought up the fact they’ve been shown one red card in over two years of Scottish football. The last red card Rangers received in domestic action prior to Tuesday night was in 2019.

Those will not be convenient points for them.

Still, it’s all a sign they are beginning to crack a bit as Celtic crank up the pressure in the Scottish Premiership title race. It’s also very funny.

It will be interesting to see if there are any glaring errors in Rangers matches moving forward. They wouldn’t be trying to put undue pressure on referees, would they? Of course not.

With a massive derby on the horizon, expect big decisions to come under even closer scrutiny in the coming weeks.

Perhaps we should add a letter to the SFA to Scott Brown’s incredible honours list.
