Chris Sutton Hammered For 'Talking Shite' About Celtic On Tough Night

Chris Sutton Hammered For 'Talking Shite' About Celtic On Tough Night

With John Hartson and Kenny Miller in studio, and Chris Sutton on co-commentary, BT Sport brought together this myriad of former Celtic players for what amounted to another disappointing European night for Brendan Rodgers' side.

However, while Hartson and Miller escaped largely unscathed, it was Sutton who came in for the brunt of the criticism from the Celtic faithful watching on.

Losing 2-0 to the German outfit, it marked Celtic's second successive defeat in the tournament. Going down 3-1 to RB Salzburg in the previous round, Rodgers will take some solace from the fact that both defeats came away from home.

With two games at Park Head to turn their Europa League fate around, Chris Sutton was nevertheless left unimpressed by the apparent reluctance of Celtic's players to make something happen for themselves on a largely frustrating night.

Repeatedly criticising the attitudes of the players, as well as Rodgers himself when the Northern Irishman opted to replace the injured Jozo Simunovic with Jack Hendry - a like-for-like defensive swap that left Sutton certain Celtic were content to take what they had.

Disheartened with the former Celtic man's assessment of the situation, the club's fans vented their frustration with him in their droves.


Incredibly, many fans felt the need to point out some of the poor Europeans nights Celtic had when Sutton played for the club.

Given that team went as far as the UEFA Cup final in 2003, this seemed something of a stretch.

Some fans were more forgiving to Sutton's take on another poor night for Celtic however.

For Celtic, attention will now turn toward Sunday's League Cup semi-final tie against Hearts.
