Chris Sutton names Celtic quartet in TOTW after cup final triumph
By Will Butcher
Chris Sutton has named four Celtic players in his BT Sport Team of the Week after the Hoops triumphed in the Betfred Cup final.
Brendan Rodgers’ side secured their 16th Scottish League Cup with a 3-0 demolition of rivals Aberdeen, thanks to goals from Tom Rogic, Moussa Dembele and James Forrest.
Sutton revealed the team on his personal Twitter account, choosing defensive duo Mikael Lustig and Erik Svitachenko while captain Scott Brown and goalscorer Forrest also made the cut.

The two other goalscorers Dembele and Rogic were overlooked by pundit Sutton, who also included Rangers forward Joe Dodoo after an impressive display against Partick Thistle.
Danish international Sviatchenko has become Celtic’s first-choice centre-back at Parkhead under former Liverpool boss Rodgers, as the likes of Jozo Simunovic, Kolo Toure and Eoghan O’Connell look to fill the void alongside him.

Rangy right-back Lustig continues to keep summer signing Cristian Gamboa out of the side after excelling in his 24 league and cup appearances this term.
Former Hibernian star Brown has continued his superb run of form that began after coming out of international retirement, while Forrest added his sixth goal of the season with a brilliant run and finish into the bottom corner.
Sutton, who played for Celtic between 2000 and 2006, also chose five Hearts stars in his line-up, while Hamilton goalkeeper Gary Woods was chosen between the sticks.
