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."
