Stokes was not pleased with manager Ronny Deila’s decision to leave him out of the Celtic squad for last weekend’s Scottish Premiership game against Inverness Caledonian Thistle away from home.
The 27-year-old Republic of Ireland striker made his opinion about that decision known on Twitter and was subsequently suspended for two weeks for his outburst, as reported by BBC Sport.
Former Celtic striker Sutton believes that Stokes was wrong to go public with his frustration, claiming that he should have spoken to Deila face-to-face.
“Stokes might have every right to be frustrated and hacked off, but he shouldn’t be Tweeting,” the former Chelsea striker has written in The Daily Record.
“What happened to men being men? If he was annoyed, he should have kicked-off at the team hotel or in the dressing room at who he was actually frustrated with instead of using Twitter to tell people in dark corners of Slovakia.”
Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 39 points from 16 matches. The Bhoys are four points clear of second-place Aberdeen, who have played a game more.
