CHRIS SUTTON has reacted to a night of high drama at Celtic Park with a late goal from ‘General Leigh’ giving the bhoys all three points in their first Europa League group match.
The Englishman was in the BT commentary booth as he watched Celtic go through the motions and look out of ideas as they passed amongst themselves but did very little in the way of attacking positively.
Celtic were trying to break down a Rosenborg side that had no interest in going for a win but simply sit back and defend in the hope of getting a point.
Their plan was four minutes away from working when a long ball and one of the first long balls of the night coming from Scott Brown met the head of Dedryk Boyata who had cleverly stayed up the field to knock it down for Leigh Griffiths and send Celtic Park into raptures.
Sutton believed it was a must win and Celtic did just that.
.@btsportfootball Must win… did win… it wasn’t pretty but a crucial victory for Celtic⚽️ Griffiths proving he’s the man👏👏
