Chris Sutton delivers damning verdict on Celtic Park fixtures
Chris Sutton has taken to social media to lament how teams aren’t frightened of playing at Celtic Park anymore.
The BT Sport pundit took park in memorable victories in Glasgow against the likes of Juventus, Barcelona and Porto, as the Hoops’ home form was the bedrock of their Champions League campaigns.
Those days seem to gone though as the Bhoys lost all three of their Champions League group stage matches at home, reaching a new low in the recent 1-0 loss to Anderlecht.
They have won only one home match in their last three appearances in the group stages, a damning statistic.
On his personal Twitter account, Sutton gave his damning verdict, claiming that “any team in the world” used to be scared of playing in the East End of Glasgow.
“Celtic Park used to be a place any team in the world feared coming to. And I mean any! Celtic need to get that back.”

With Celtic’s Europa League last 32 match first leg taking place in Glasgow, the Hoops will hope for an upturn in results or their stay in the competition may prove to be a short one.
Back on the domestic front and it’s a different story, as the Bhoys return to Scottish Premiership action looking to extend their British domestic record of 67 matches unbeaten.
They face former manager Neil Lennon’s Hibs at Easter Road, as part of a busy December which also includes home matches against Aberdeen and Rangers.
