Chris Sutton considers legal action after tweets reacting to Rangers' decision to ban him

Chris Sutton is considering legal action following some “disgusting” tweets reacting to the decision of Rangers to ban him, according to Sportsmail.

The BT Sport pundit was not allowed entry to use a studio at Ibrox to cover Thursday’s Europa League clash, with the Bears also denying former Celtic manager Neil Lennon entry.

Rangers claimed they denied Sutton from entering Ibrox due to security reasons, and he is now looking to react legally after some reaction on social media.

Getting messier

The Light Blues should have known better than to cause such a controversy, and the Hoops legend was not going to be spared online by delighted Rangers fans.

Nobody deserves abuse on the internet, but Sutton’s rivalry with the champions is well-documented, and their supporters were not going to let a chance to get back at him gone by.

They could have gone about it maturely, though, and some of them could now be in hot water if the former striker decides to go to court.

Sutton has the right to press charges, but that will surely fan the flames and see things get messier between both sides.

He is yet to make up his mind, but his frosty relationship with the Rangers fans is not going to get better no matter the decision he makes.

He is keen to teach some of them that have taken things too far a lesson, though, and things could get interesting in the coming weeks and months in the court of law.
