Speaking on BT Sport Sutton took aim at the Gers, likening Dave King to Basil Fawlty and comparing the Ibrox board to a Monty Python film.

The former Celtic striker said he would be ‘furious’ if he was a Rangers supporter, adding: “It’s a great club, a great institution [and] the board have made a mess of it. They are leaderless.

“It’s like the People’s Front of Judea - no one can make a decision. Meetings about meetings... get on with it and get a manager in.”

Sutton expressed his belief that events in the lead-up to the Aberdeen boss electing to remain at Pittodrie spoke volumes.

“I think it tells you the state of where Rangers are, and how Derek McInnes sees it. It’s a circus, it really is,” said Sutton.

“[Dave King] didn’t even meet Pedro Caixinha before he got the job. He was the equivalent of Basil Fawlty.

“And the statement the other night - that was an embarrassment. It was childish.

“There has been a lack of leadership [at Rangers]. It is rudderless - it’s pin the tail on the donkey stuff.”
