Celtic fans on social media have been responding to Chris Sutton’s suggestion that the Bhoys are missing their former centre-back Charlie Mulgrew.
The 31-year-old, who left Glasgow for Blackburn Rovers in 2015, took his goal tally for the season to 11 with a double in his side’s 3-1 win over Shrewsbury on Saturday.
This promoted Sutton to use his personal Twitter account to remark that Mulgrew was a player that the Hoops shouldn’t have let go.
“Brilliant results for Norwich City and Blackburn Rovers today. Maddison is a player and so is Charlie Mulgrew. Blackburn’s gain was maybe Celtics loss with Mulgrew,” he said.

This promoted Celtic fans to react on Twitter, with most vehemently disagreeing that the player was missed in Glasgow.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Sutton’s comment:

Lol he only looks good in that diddy league he's currently playing in

He done his bit, but wouldn't get near the current side.
Wish him well though.

Rodgers said no. The last 6 months of Johansen was painful. He didn't look interested nor could he find a team mate 10 yards away. Took the money, he's not been missed that much

@chris_sutton73 Charlie Mulgrew has found his level……far too inconsistent for Celtic,in my opinion!!

Chaz M was at the heart of the bad attitude during Ronny’s time along with Commons and Stokes. Shifting them all was the right thing to do.

He was a good servant, but ultimately not good enough for us

Mulgrew quit the Hoops when his contract ran out after six trophy-laden years with the club which saw him win seven trophies including five league titles.
His best season with the club was undeniably 2011-12, when he was named as Scotland’s player of the year and scored nine goals.
Statistically the player hasn’t been missed since his departure though, as the Bhoys have won every domestic trophy available since then.
Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to add to that list of trophies when his team returns from their winter break with a Scottish Cup tie against Brechin on Saturday.
