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.

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.
