Chris Sutton has reacted sarcastically, after hearing the news that Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack’s appeal against his red card was turned down.

Jack was sent off in Rangers’ last match against Aberdeen, after a strong challenge on Stevie May.

Jack did make contact with the ball first, but his studs connected with the shin of May and he was given his marching orders.

Rangers felt that Jack’s dismissal was harsh, as there was no malice in the tackle, but Sutton has suggested that the red was deserved.

And the former Celtic striker has jokingly claimed he was shocked when he heard the news of Jack’s failed appeal.

Jack’s disciplinary record since moving to Ibrox this season is now becoming a concern.

The midfielder enforcer has picked up four red cards in just 19 matches since moving to Rangers from Aberdeen.

Jack is now set to miss Rangers’ next three games, with the midfielder set to return against Kilmarnock on 23rd December.
