Chris Sutton aims sly dig at Rangers as SFA make VAR decision

Chris Sutton has aimed a sly dig at Rangers after it emerged that the Scottish Premiership could soon implement VAR.

As shared by the Daily Record, the Scottish Football Association claim an initial presentation on how VAR could be implemented in the Scottish top-flight was received well by clubs in an initial meeting on Friday.

Former Premier League referee Howard Webb showed all 12 Premiership sides how the Video Assistant Referee system could work in Scotland, and SFA say an SPFL vote is on the cards to decide if VAR should be implemented in the league.

Sutton has seemingly taken a swipe at Rangers via his personal Twitter account following the update.

He said: “If used properly it may spell trouble for some…big if…

Sutton at it again

Rangers headed into the break with a 2-1 win over Hibernian, and plenty debates have followed after the visitors had Ryan Porteous sent off in the first-half for a challenge on Joe Aribo.

Replay showed that the Hibs star got the ball, but the manner of his challenge left Nick Walsh with no choice than to produce a red card.

VAR would have given the ref a more informed decision as he would have seen the challenge from different angles.

Sutton is suggesting having VAR could spell trouble for the Bears if it is used properly, but he has nothing to worry about.

Rangers won the title last season without no issues or conspiracy theories, and while some have suggested weekend’s victory came with questions, Steven Gerrard’s side had no influence on the ref’s call.

VAR or not, the Light Blues will always prove their quality, and they will definitely be glad to have it implemented.

They headed into the break top of the table and are still the team to beat this term as they look to retain their title.
