CHRIS SUTTON believes it’s ‘strange’ that Celtic go into the Champions League qualifiers yet again without proper reinforcements.
The former Celtic striker viewed the current defensive crises as unnecessary and something Celtic have now dealt with for the third year running.
The Englishman also questioned how much Celtic actually want John McGinn with the clubs not being to come to an agreement.
Speaking in his Record column the Bt pundit said: ‘Celtic need to be tooled up for these games, which is why the John McGinn saga is another bizarre situation.
‘Just how much do Celtic want him? It’s a valid question given they allowed the move to rumble on and now he’ll be cup-tied for the qualifiers after playing for Hibs in the Faroes on Thursday night.
‘I just think it’s strange Celtic have gambled again with so much at stake. You get the feeling the club are just happy to get to the group stage and don’t mind so much what they do once they are there.’
