Kenny Miller fumes over Rangers sending off as John Lundstram tackle 'never a red'

Kenny Miller has been left fuming over John Lundstram's sending off which he insists was "never a red card."

The Rangers midfielder has made his team's task even harder by earning his marching orders while 2-1 down to Celtic heading towards half-time. The Scouser scored an own-goal to make it 2-0 after Matt O'Riley's trademark opener but Cyriel Dessers handed the visitors a lifeline with a headed goal to get them back in it.

Moments later and Lundstram had delivered a massive blow by getting himself sent off. He went steaming in on Alistair Johnston who got himself to the ball first before being caught on the lower leg with the 30-year-old's studs. Referee Willie Collum blew for a foul and dished out a yellow card but after a VAR intervention and review, it was upgraded to red.

Miller, on co-commentary for Sky Sports, was raging over the decision.

He said: "He's going to win the ball. Johnston plants his leg and he catches him. Every tackle like that cannot be a red card. See in real time, that's never a red card. Now look at the still.

"You know what, the way the game is going now. That is not a red card, there's no way. The still showing the contact. Every kick can't be a red card.

"Alistair Johnston plants his foot in the way of where Lundstram is going. Incredible."

Chris Sutton disagreed and explained: "Catches him above the ankle, he's out of control there. I know what you're saying Kenny by you query why Lundstram is even going to ground."
