Chris Sutton has told Douglas Park that his club has made a rip-roaring a**e of things in 2020.

Yesterday the Lanarkshire businessman was humiliated by SPFL clubs when he was only able to muster 13 votes for his EGM proposal despite an extensive media campaign led by daily coverage from Radio Scotland.

The issue of an independent investigation has taken the heat off Steven Gerrard, perhaps if he had a 13 point lead over Celtic at the top of the table concerns about corporate governance wouldn’t be as much of a priority.

During the break Michael Beale and Jermain Defoe have been delivering the usual empty threats and promises while conveniently ignoring the fact that their title challenge ended in Dubai at the turn of the year.

Yesterday’s vote from the SPFL was yet another blow with Sutton not ducking the issue as he spoke to the Daily Record:

They’ve made a rip-roaring a**e of things since the turn of the year, that’s the bottom line.

They only have themselves to blame. They can look around, point fingers and say ‘well, it’s the SPFL’s fault’ – but Neil Doncaster didn’t switch off from a corner.

Neil Doncaster didn’t miss chance after chance. Neil Doncaster didn’t defend badly. It’s more about problems on the pitch and they’re trying to apportion blame elsewhere.

I’m not sticking up for the SPFL at all here, but the bottom line is would there be this whole hurrah if Rangers were 13 points clear at the top? We know the answer, let’s not kid ourselves.

As ever yesterday’s defeat at the ballot box was greeted with the old favourite that the Ibrox club are ‘considering legal options’. Sutton is believed to be considering a playing comeback with Neil Lennon considering offering a pay-as-you-play contract.
