Chris Sutton has suggested in The Daily Record that Celtic need to sign three or four players in the January transfer window.

The former Celtic striker made the suggestion following the Bhoys’ defeat to Barcelona at home in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.


Argentina international forward Lionel Messi scored twice at Celtic Park to guide Barcelona to a 2-0 victory in the Group C match.

“Barcelona are a cut about but Rodgers will have learned a lot about his side,” Sutton wrote in The Daily Record.

“He know knows the players that are not quite up to it at that level and it will be interesting to see what he does in January. I think Rodgers is still three or four players away and he’ll need to be backed.”

Celtic are going strong in the Scottish Premiership at the moment and are firm favourites to win the title.

It is hard to see the Hoops slipping up in the title race, and they should wrap up the championship by a healthy margin.

The Glasgow giants have been knocked out of the Champions League, but the fact that they were playing in the group stage should be considered a success.

The Bhoys will return to action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Scottish Premiership rivals Aberdeen at Hampden Park in Glasgow in the final of the Scottish League Cup.

Celtic will head into the match against Aberdeen as favourites.
