CHRIS SUTTON has reacted like many other Celtic fans to the injury news Brendan Rodgers delivered last night during his pre-match press conference.
Everyone knew Celtic would be without Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths which was bad enough but the news Tom Rogic hasn’t travelled and Benkovic is a major doubt has not been good for the mood surrounding tonight’s game.
Not good news… https://t.co/7ERoVnnRen

James Forrest is also out due to suspension, which means there could be at least FIVE Celtic starters out against Leipzig.
The game was a tough order anyway and now it seems like an impossible task with Celtic’s fringe players having to come in cold to make a difference.
Brendan Rodgers believes giving some of his young players a chance will be good and it will test their character but ideally you would not want to throw players who have only scarcely played into such a difficult game.
There could be starts for Kouassi and Morgan, which will be very interesting.
