Chris Sutton asks a major question of Celtic

Celtic Parkhead

Celtic went down 2-1 to Molde at home in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Chris Sutton said on the UEFA Europa League Highlights show on BT Sport Europe on Thursday evening that he does not know about the future of Celtic in European competitions.

The former Celtic striker made the comments following the Bhoys’ 2-1 defeat to Molde at Celtic Park in the Europa League Group A on Thursday evening.

Ronny Deila’s side are at the bottom of the group at the moment with just two points from four matches, three points behind second-place Fenerbahce.

Sutton does not know what the future holds for Celtic in terms of European competitions and said on the UEFA Europa League Highlights show on BT Sport Europe on Thursday evening: “They didn’t have a clue what they were doing when they went down to 10 men.

“They were all over the place. You just could not see them getting back into the game. I don’t know where Celtic go in Europe. I really don’t.”

Under Deila, Celtic have failed to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League two seasons in a row.

While winning the Europa League may not be feasible for the Hoops, they should at least progress to the first knockout stage.

There is a distinct possibility that the Hoops will fail to get out of their group, and for a club of Celtic’s stature and reputation, it is simply not good enough.
