Weir absolves Hutton

Published Add your comment

David Weir has assured Alan Hutton that nobody in the Ibrox dressing room is blaming him for the red card which could have jeopardised Rangers´ Champions League qualification hopes in Tuesday night´s second round qualifier against FK Zeta.

Rangers scraped a 2-0 win ahead of next week´s second leg in Montenegro and Hutton immediately apologised to his team-mates after the match. But Weir disagreed with what he believed was a hard-line approach from Greek referee Georgios Kasnaferis.

"To be fair to him, he did apologise," said Weir. "But he doesn´t need to apologise, I don´t think it´s necessary. Alan has had the right intentions. There was no malice or nastiness and I think it was very harsh on him."
