Chris Sutton has taken to twitter to criticise Celtic’s summer transfer dealings under Brendan Rodgers.
Following the 7-1 loss to PSG in the Champions League, the former Celtic striker was pontificating over Celtic’s poor performance in the Parc des Princes.
A fan replied that “£300 million” wouldn’t guarantee that you’d win the Champions League. Sutton wasn’t having that though, replying on his official twitter account that he thought Celtic hadn’t improved enough in defence to succeed in the Champions League.
He said: “Celtic were short at centre half area and goalkeeper in the summer and nothing has changed my mind at CL level…”
I’m not daring to dream I just thought Celtic were short at centre half area and goalkeeper in the summer and nothing has changed my mind at CL level… https://t.co/zaSdPYjkEe

Celtic under Brendan Rodgers have been plagued with defensive issues in the Champions League.
So far this season they have conceded 17 goals in their Champions League group stage games.
Last season was a similar story, as the Bhoys conceded 16 goals in the group stage, including seven in a defeat against Barcelona.
Despite this, Celtic did not sign any defensive players during the summer, as a move for South African centre-half Rivaldo Coetzee fell through when the player failed a medical.
The Hoops have a chance to get over last night’s disappointment in Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final against Motherwell.
In other Celtic news, Scott Brown admitted that losing seven goals to PSG was hard to accept
