Former Celtic star wants this team from the top pot in Champions League draw

By Harvey Byrne

Chris Sutton has picked out Leicester as beatable opponents for Celtic ahead of the Champions League draw on Thursday.

The Scottish giants enter the draw in pot four, while the Premier League champions are in pot one.

Celtic and Leicester faced each other in pre-season this summer, with the match ending in a 1-1 draw, and Sutton believes that the surprise league winners are beatable.

“I’d like glamour ties but Leicester beatable from top seeds! Big nights are back under the lights at Celtic Park and I can’t wait,” said Sutton on his personal Twitter account.

Sutton played for the Hoops for six years between 2000 and 2006, making 199 appearances and scoring 86 goals.

The closest Sutton got to European success with the Bhoys was in 2003, where he was part of a side which lost 3-2 against Jose Mourinho’s Porto in the UEFA Cup final.

Brendan Rodgers was drawn into a group against Real Madrid when in charge of Liverpool in the 2014-15 campaign, although Hoops fans will be hoping to avoid such elite competition this early on in the competition.

Celtic defeated Lincoln Red Imps, Astana and Hapoel Be’er Sheva to make the group stages and they are the only Scottish representatives in the competition.

The Champions League draw will be made on Thursday at 5.00pm BST.
