Chris Sutton delivers critical Twitter verdict on Celtic display
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton believes Celtic are still “one or two players short of really doing something” following their 1-1 draw in their Champions League group game at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Striker Moussa Dembele converted a penalty in the second-half, after being fouled by Julian Korb, who was sent-off as the Bhoys kept their Champions League dreams alive.
Forward Lars Stindl had given his side the lead in the first-half, when his volley beat keeper Craig Gordon, but the Scottish Champions drew level after the interval for a deserved point.
Former striker Sutton offered his assessment of the game, as he praised the Hoops for matching their opponents on the night.
“Once again a great response from Celtic,” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Toe to toe with Gladbach.”
