The ex-England international let rip at the Blues in a recent column for The Sun, following the club's dismissal of assistant coach Ray Wilkins.
'Chelsea have once again proved they have loads of money but a shortage of class,' he wrote.
'Their latest example of behaving shabbily was the sacking of No 2 Ray Wilkins.
'Equally, Roman Abramovich has proved he has little respect for Carlo Ancelotti by removing Ray seemingly without the manager's approval.
'It just wouldn't happen. But it appears Ancelotti is only charged with team matters and these events over the last few days have merely weakened his position.
'Obviously there is more to this story than meets the eye but I cannot see why they could not at least let Ray see out his contract until the end of the season. I have no doubt several of the first team will have been extremely unhappy with the decision.'
