Chris Sutton delivers damning verdict on Celtic Champions League performance
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton believes the “better team won” during Celtic’s 2-0 Champions League group game defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday evening.
Two second-half mistakes from defender Kolo Toure helped the German side to victory at Celtic Park, which left Brendan Rodgers’ team bottom of Group C after three games.
The Hoops have registered only one point from three encounters so far, with a 7-0 defeat against Barcelona at the Nou Camp and a 3-3 draw against Manchester City at Celtic Park.
But, following their second defeat in three Champions League group fixtures, former striker Sutton revealed that he thought Celtic were simply second best on the night.
“Disappointing performance the better team won!” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account. “But it is the elite level and a tough school. But good to be here in it.”

The Bhoys take on the Bundesliga outfit in the reverse fixture in Germany on November 1, as they look for their first win of the group stages.
Before that Rodgers’ side face their old rivals Rangers at Hampden Park in the Scottish League Cup semi-final on Sunday afternoon.
During their previous meeting in September, the Hoops defeated Rangers 5-1 at Celtic Park to avenge the semi-final League Cup defeat last season.
