Chris Sutton refuses to answer Steven Gerrard question after Rangers lose in cup v St Johnstone
Chris Sutton and Robbie Savage had a lively debate over Steven Gerrard after Rangers crashed out of the Scottish Cup to St Johnstone on penalties.
The sides played out a 0-0 draw over 90 minutes before both grabbed a goal apiece in extra-time with Chris Kane cancelling out James Tavernier’s 117th-minute opener.
Callum Davidson’s side then won 4-2 on penalties after Tavernier and Kemar Roofe missed their spot-kicks, and that led Savage to pose a big question on BBC 5 Live, as relayed on their Twitter account.
“Chris I’ll ask you the question,” he said.
“If Callum Davidson does the double but Steven Gerrard goes undefeated in the league who should win the Scottish manager of the season?”
Sutton replied: “When and if Callum Davidson wins the double I will answer that, you can’t ask hypothetical questions.
“It’s a ridiculous line of questioning.”
Who should win Scottish Manager of the Year if…
🏴 St Johnstone do the cup double under Callum Davidson
🏴 Rangers go unbeaten in the league under Steven Gerrard

We’re not sure why the pair were immediately discussing manager of the year awards straight after the Light Blues exited the Scottish Cup on Sunday evening.
Are they aware there’s still two games to go if St Johnstone want to lift the trophy?
They’ve already won the League Cup this season, a monumental victory to lift only their second major honour, and if they do go the distance in the Scottish Cup that will be a huge feather in the cap of Davidson.
But does that really compare to an Invincibles season?
The sheer difficulty to remain undefeated over a 38-game period is no mean feat, not when you’re up against another side in Glasgow who like to get their wallet out at will.
Considering where we’ve come from in recent years there’s no one more deserving than Gerrard of holding the manager’s crown, despite a disappointing cup exit at Ibrox.
