Chris Sutton reacts instantly as Rangers lose 2-0 v Union Saint-Gilloise

Chris Sutton has mocked Rangers on Twitter after Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side lost 2-0 away at Union Saint-Gilloise on Tuesday night.

Teddy Teuma and Dante Vanzeir scored in each half at Den Dreef to put USG in a commanding position ahead of the second leg of the Champions League qualifier at Ibrox next week.

It was a woeful display by Rangers and Sutton has swiped at the Light Blues because their defeat will have a negative impact on UEFA’s coefficients.

“Not a great night for the coefficient,” said Sutton via his personal Twitter account on 2 August.


Rangers have done the world of good for Scottish football in recent years.

We’re the reason why Celtic are already in the Champions League group stages and we’re the reason why there are two Scottish clubs in Europe’s top competition.

No one else in Scotland is pulling their weight in Europe so every other club needs to send a massive thank you the way of Ibrox for that.

But there’s no denying that the defeat to USG was a shocker.

While they’re not a bad side having finished second in Belgium last season, they’re a team we should at least be competitive against.

USG weren’t even any good on Tuesday night – Rangers were appalling.

A lot needs to change for us to overturn the two-goal deficit in the second leg.

Allan McGregor, Ben Davies and Ridvan Yilmaz all need to play for starters while we hope that Ryan Kent is available because Rabbi Matondo had a shocker.

Malik Tillman did well – but he was the only positive on a dreary night on the continent.

In other Rangers news, a BBC Sportscene pundit was baffled by this incident in the Gers’ win over Livingston.
