Chris Sutton has named three Rangers players in his Scottish Premiership team of the week after the Ibrox side's 3-1 win at Hearts - three more than rivals Celtic.

Celtic were held to a surprise 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on Saturday - only days after the Ayrshire side ended Pedro Caixinha's Rangers reign.

And for the first time ever, Sutton - the former Celtic striker - failed to select a single Bhoys player in his XI of top flight performers.

In contrast, a trio of Rangers stars - James TavernierRoss McCrorie and Kenny Miller - made the cut, alongside four from Hibernian, two from Partick Thistle and one apiece from Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, albeit on loan from Celtic [Ryan Christie].

Sutton has been a regular critic of Rangers, but was left with little ammunition after the Gers' impressive performance at Murrayfield.

The result - which arrived during Graeme Murty's first game as caretaker manager - lifted Rangers to third in the table, and only six points behind leaders Celtic, who are going for a seventh successive title.
