'All at sea' - Chris Sutton takes aim at Celtic after struggles v Partick Thistle
Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton hasn’t held back in his criticism of the Hoops defence following their 3-2 Scottish Cup victory over Partick Thistle.
Whilst also praising hat-trick hero James Forrest, Sutton couldn’t resist having a go at the defence, who didn’t cover themselves in glory, with Jozo Simunovic in particular having a poor game.
“Forrest on fire at the treble” Sutton began on his personal Twitter account, before turning his attention to the defence.
“Defensively still all at sea but the treble still on for Celtic! Thistle put up a good contest.”
.@btsportfootball Forrest on fire at the treble???????????? Defensively still all at sea but the treble still on for Celtic! Thistle put up a good contest????

The Bhoys seemed set to blow away Thistle after two goals from Forrest made it 2-0 in the first 10 minutes of the game.
However, a dreadful backpass from Simunovic let in Doolan who pulled a goal back for Partick.
Forrest managed to complete his hat-trick early in the second-half but there was still a nervy end to the game for the Hoops when Conor Sammon pulled a goal back in the last ten minutes.
The Bhoys managed to see the game out though and as Sutton says they are only three games away from the treble, after reaching the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup.
The Celts will have to defend far better against Zenit in their Europe League last 32 first leg clash on Thursday though or their stay in Europe will be a short one.
