Chris Sutton has admitted he was blown away by the goal scored by Callum McGregor in Celtic’s 1-0 Europa League victory over Zenit at Parkhead on Thursday night.
The BT Sport was also enthused about the part played in the goal by new loan signing from Chelsea Charly Musonda, whose lofted pass found the Scotland international at the back post, who smashed the ball into the net.
“Watch this. Superb control and strike and watch the Musonda awareness” the former Hoops striker said as he revelled in the match-winning moment on his personal Twitter account.

The Bhoys were well-worthy of the victory over Roberto Mancini’s side, as they dominated the game from start to finish, with Zenit being limited to one real chance, a close-range effort by Zabolotny which was saved by Dorus de Vries.
Brendan Rodgers will have been delighted with the performance on the night from the likes of Moussa Dembele, Jozo Simunovic and the match-winner McGregor, all of whom have came in for criticism in recent weeks for some below par performances.
The decision to start Eboue Kouassi also worked a treat, as the 20-year-old Ivorian dominated the midfield, establishing a platform that the Hoops could build on.
The Bhoys return to league action against St Johnstone on Sunday, before making the trip to Russia for the second leg against Zenit on Thursday.
