Sutton describes two things which stand out about Celtic career

Celtic Stands

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has suggested he'll remember his career at the club for two main reasons.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has told the Glasgow Evening Times that two things stand out from his days at the club.

The ex-Parkhead forward enjoyed a successful spell with the club and is due to pull on their colours all over again in a charity match at the weekend.

He’s explained that the uniqueness of European nights in front of the Celtic faithful, as well as the intense rivalry with local rivals Rangers are the two things he will always remember.

“Obviously, the European nights and the games against Rangers would be personal highlights but also, what the club meant to the players at that time, and what the club meant to me personally and to my family. They are times I will never forget,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.

Need for that rivalry to be reignited

There is a definite case to suggest that Scottish football needs Rangers back in the top flight in the Premiership.

Celtic fans can be confident they will always now have an edge over their arch rivals, but with Rangers back up, it makes Scottish football as a commodity more valuable in terms of broadcasting.

That should mean a larger chunk of the pie for Celtic, meaning they can continue investing heavily in new talent and the best players, to keep themselves ahead of all of their main rivals.

In terms of Europe, the club still have a chance of being successful this season despite having missed out on the Champions League and they have to go all out to go as far as they can in the Europa League.
