'Spot on', 'Great points' - Fans agree with Sutton criticism of Celtic treble winners
Celtic fans on social media seem to agree with former Hoops striker Chris Sutton, who criticised a number of the players who won the domestic treble last summer.
Writing in his column in the Daily Record, Sutton was critical of a number of players for failing to live up to the standards they had previously set playing for the Hoops.
Amongst the players Sutton criticised were Scott Sinclair, Mikael Lustig and Stuart Armstrong.
When asking for thoughts on the article most fans were of the opinion that Sutton was correct, but that perhaps he was being too harsh on Kristoffer Ajer, who he mildly criticised.
Other supporters meanwhile gave their thoughts on what positions need to be strengthened ahead of next season.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Sutton’s column:

Just read it Chris and you make great points. Disagree re Ayer though. He is still a kid but with massive potential. Needs an experienced pro next to him (Not Boyata).

Spot on Chris. For me, we desperately need a right back and centre half that can walk into the first 11.

I thought Ayer looked good at times and also seems to be improving all the time. For a centre half to become established in a team then 20 is still fairly young.

I think you are spot on especially about Sinclair I think Rodgers has to address it his lack luster season and not dress it up. Also Griffiths fitness he has tried many times to no avail and I rate griffiths alot but just who he is it think like Mccourt was

For me a LB in case KT get injured, a striker and that's 8 in a row wrapped up.

We need a goalkeeper, centre half, right back, winger, edouard and hopefully we get an easy draw in Europe

I think one or two need to go. Maybe freshen things up with a couple of new players.

Last season the Hoops struggled to match the form they displayed in Brendan Rodgers’ first season in charge of the club, but the outcome was the same – a domestic treble.
For the Hoops to make the big leap in Europe though, performances will have to improve, and it will be very interesting to see what additions Rodgers makes to the squad in the summer.
Even when winning the treble, the Hoops know they have to improve, and Rodgers will be well aware of that as he gets set for his third season in charge of the Hoops.
