Chris Sutton delivers instant one-word Celtic verdict after Europa win v Zenit
Celtic were deserved 1-0 winners against Zenit in the Europa League on Thursday and Chris Sutton called them “outstanding” after the game.
They had to wait until the 78th minute to get the goal their play deserved but it was well worth the wait.
Charly Musonda, on loan from Chelsea, didn’t start the game and didn’t come on until the 73rd minute.
But he picked out a fantastic pass to Callum McGregor in the Zenit box and he controlled the ball with his chest before slamming it into the roof of the net.
It was, according to Sutton, a “stunning” goal and that’s a good way to describe the finish and the atmosphere on an electric night in Glasgow.
Sutton delivered his verdict on Twitter immediately following the game.
.@btsportfootball Outstanding Celtic ????????Faith restored ???? 1-0 Superb victory with a stunning goal⚽️

Most Celtic fans expected Musonda to start but in the end Brendan Rodgers seems to have got it absolutely spot on.
Musonda had the impact his manager hoped he would off the bench and the result gives Celtic a valuable lead to defend next week.
More importantly, they kept a clean sheet and they will know how important an away goal will be now.
