Chris Sutton has admitted on social media that Celtic’s passage into the Europa League isn’t guaranteed.
The Hoops are huge favourites to secure a place in Europe after Christmas, as they take on Belgian champions Anderlecht in the Champions League on Tuesday night with a three goal and three point lead in the battle for third place in the group stage.
Sutton, speaking on his personal Twitter account on Monday, feels that the Hoops can’t take a win tonight for granted.
“Celtic still got a bit of work to do” he said, after revealing he’ll be joined by fellow former Hoops strikers Henrik Larsson and John Hartson for the game.

The Bhoys have had an up and down Champions League campaign, featuring some excellent and some dreadful performances.
The best performance came in the 3-0 victory over Anderlecht in Belgium in September, where goals from Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts and Scott Sinclair gave the Celts only their second ever group stage away win.
There was also a highly creditable performance in the narrow 2-1 loss to Bayern Munich in Glasgow.
The poor performances came in the two defeats to French league leaders PSG, which saw the Hoops lose 5-0 at home and suffer an embarrassing 7-1 hammering in Paris.
Those poor performances will be forgotten about if a place in the draw for the last 32 of the Europa League is clinched against the Belgian champions.
