Chris Sutton believes James Maddison should have started for Aberdeen as they were beaten 1-0 by Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

Attacking-midfielder Maddison has scored two goals and provided three assists for the Dons this season, but he was a 53-minute substitute in the top of the table clash at Pittodrie.

Brendan Rodgers’ side went ten points clear at the top of the table, as Tomas Rogic’s controlled strike was enough to secure all three points for the visitors.

But former Bhoys striker Sutton believes 19-year-old midfielder Maddison should have been introduced from the start for the home side, as they lost further ground on the league leaders.

“Celtic huge win,” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account “Craig Gordon great save. Aberdeen gave it a go but Maddison should’ve started.”

The Bhoys have now stretched their lead to the top of the table by ten points and they have games in hand against a number of their opponents.

The win also means goalkeeper Craig Gordon has not conceded a goal in four games, with Kilmarnock the last scorers on September 24.

Rodgers side now travel to Germany for a tough Champions League fixture against Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday night.
