CHRIS SUTTON has reacted to Celtic’s heavy defeat against Bayer Leverkusen by branding the German club ‘ruthless’.
The Englishman, however, is still with Ange and his team claiming they need more time to bed in before they can fully be judged.
The Hoops were outplayed for most of the game but they did have decent spells at the start of each half. The chances we did have were dealt with very well by the Bayer keeper and the Bundesliga side did not need a second invitation to get among the goals.
Celtic thumped by Bayer Leverkusen. Didn’t take their chances and exposed badly by ruthless Leverkusen. Ange has a style of play which he will stick with. I think he needs time and patience. Once the new players are bedded in though the team can’t keep making the same mistakes…
Bayer Leverkusen was always going to be tough opponents for Celtic and even if we played to our full potential, we would have still needed a bit of luck.
We have a thin squad and two of our top players got thrown right back into the thick of things after three weeks out.
At some point, Ange will have no excuses, for now, if we can get a win against Aberdeen and make it to the international break to regroup and get players back – October could be a big month.
