CHRIS SUTTON has aimed a sideswipe at Ibrox bosses and their scattergun blame game approach.

The Govan outfit have vowed to examine legal options over the SPFL resolution voting outcome that has seen a halt to the three leagues outwith the Premiership.

As a consequence of the ballot, Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers have been named champions of their respective divisions.

Celtic, 13 points ahead with only eight games to play before the coronavirus pandemic lockdown in the middle of March, will inevitably be awarded their ninth successive title at some stage this month.

However, the Ibrox side are far from happy with the state of affairs and have issued a statement in which they insist “no fair-minded person” could take the result of the vote seriously.

Former Celtic striker Sutton, now a top media pundit, responded on Twitter: “Democratic vote…overwhelming result…frustration must really be the wheels came off after the winter break.

“But blame everyone and everything else.”

Steven Gerrard’s side were involved in a false dawn and hopes of at last topping the elite division when they went into the winter break two points adrift of the Hoops with a game in hand.

However, defeats from Hearts, Kilmarnock and Hamilton Accies and draws against Aberdeen and St Johnstone saw them nosedive while Neil Lennon’s men surged towards the club’s 51st flag in their history.
