Last week, Sunderland announced the signing of Kyle Lafferty (Sunderland). The striker has been brought in to help score goals and drag the Black Cats out of the EFL League One. If he can, it will prove to be a massive signing from Phil Parkinson. The player has had two previous spells at Rangers in the past (transfermarkt.co.uk).

After the signing, the Daily Record posted a tweet from the player’s first interview with the club, claiming that the player measured Rangers and Sunderland equally. Upon reading this headline, many Rangers fans were perturbed. They don’t think Sunderland are anywhere near as big as the Gers.

Are Rangers bigger than any team below England's top flight?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Other fans pointed out that tweet’s headline took the player’s quote completely out of context.

What do we think?

Both clubs are big in their own right. But these Rangers fans have every reason to show pride in their club’s size. At the end of the day, Lafferty is at Sunderland Football Club, while Rangers are challenging for the league title (Sky Sports).
