Chris Sutton says he has one nagging doubt about Celtic

Celtic FC

Chris Sutton comments on Scottish Premiership champions Celtic’s attacking unit.

Chris Sutton has explained in The Daily Record why he is not impressed with Celtic’s attack at the moment.

The former Celtic striker believes that Ronny Deila’s side are not clicking as an attacking unit at present.

“My one nagging doubt going forward is that it hasn’t quite clicked in an attacking sense in the opening weeks of the campaign,” Sutton wrote in The Daily Record.

“They aren’t yet fluid enough in the final third and Nadir Ciftci remains a work in progress, although he’s young and he will get better.

“He has shown promise holding the ball into feet, but you can’t hit him with a diagonal and play knock down football on the occasions when it’s required.”

While Sutton makes a good point about Celtic not playing well going forward, one needs to remember that the season has only just started.

The summer signings are still bedding in, and it will take some time for the Bhoys to produce their best.

However, with the Champions League playoff round against Malmo coming up later this month, Celtic need to start playing better, and as a unit.

The first leg of the tie will be held at Celtic’s home ground, Celtic Park, with the second leg to be held in Sweden a week later.

Celtic will be favourites heading into the two-legged affair, but they have to make sure that they do not concede a goal at home in the first leg if they are to progress in Europe's premier club competition.
