Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton grilled Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha on BT Sport last month.

Sutton was quite strong when he asked Caixinha if he still stood by his comments that he had the best squad in Scotland.

Back in the first week of August, Caixinha reiterated his claim that Rangers have the best squad in Scotland, as quoted by The Daily Mail.

Rangers defender Lee Wallace, 30, has criticised former Celtic striker Sutton for coming too strongly on the Gers’ manager.

“I remember watching the situation you are talking about and I did feel there was a small part of that, a lack of respect,” the left-back told The Scottish Sun.

“I’m not sure if it was Brendan Rodgers standing next to the guys that that might have been the way the questions were going.”

Rangers will return to action this evening when they take on Partick Thistle away from home at the Firhill Stadium in the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers are fourth in the league table at the moment with 10 points from five matches, three points behind leaders and Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Partick are struggling at the moment and are currently 10th in the Scottish Premiership table with just a point from five matches.

Rangers should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter with relative ease.
