Ex-Aberdeen captain Ryan Jack has failed to have his red card for a horror tackle on Dons striker Stevie May overturned.

Chris Sutton has reacted sarcastically, after hearing the news that Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack's appeal against his red card was turned down.

Although Jack looked to have won the ball first, Willie Collum went straight for his red card after the former Aberdeen star connected with the ankle of the oncoming May.

An appeal was submitted to the Scottish FA after Rangers reviewed the challenge but an independent panel has upheld the original decision.

The midfielder serves an immediate two-match ban for the incident against Aberdeen on December 3, meaning he sits out the games against Ross County and Hibernian.

It was the fourth red card shown to the 25-year-old since he swapped Pittodrie for Ibrox in the summer - prior to his transfer he had been sent off three times in his career.

That means he will be available for Rangers' game against St Johnstone on December 16 but will then be suspended for the trip to Kilmarnock on December 23.
