Chris Sutton has just predicted the result of Rangers' clash with Ajax tonight

BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton has made his prediction for the Champions League clash between Ajax and Glasgow Rangers.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst had guided the Ibrox side back into the group stages of Europe’s biggest competition and Gers fans must be buzzing.

Tonight sees a clash between two European giants as Rangers travel to Amsterdam to get their campaign underway.

Former Celtic striker Sutton has made his call in the Daily Mail, predicting a narrow loss for Rangers on opening night.

Sutton makes Ajax v Rangers prediction

He wrote: “Have Ajax got any players left? It felt like all I heard over the summer was how their top talents were being targeted.

“They may have lost Lisandro Martinez and Antony to Manchester United — and their manager Erik ten Hag — but this remains a club with a super track record in Europe.

“Last season they won all six group games in the Champions League and they start this campaign against a Rangers side still shaking from that 4-0 loss to Celtic on Saturday.

“I fear for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team defensively. Calvin Bassey was influential in the Rangers back line last season but he’s now an Ajax player. 2-1 to Ajax.”

Rangers fans can take heart from the fact that Sutton predicted a 2-2 draw for Celtic last night and got that wrong as they lost 3-0.

The Gers showed during their hugely impressive run to last season’s Europa League final that they are capable of being a match for anyone on a European night.

They tend to be better at home but they are capable of tight, disciplined away European performances and they will need one to get anything tonight.
