CHRIS SUTTON isn’t one to shirk from his opinions and he went full guns blazing at the board for allowing Celtic to be so under prepared for this season they were ’embarrassed’ by West Ham at Celtic Park on Saturday.

18,500 fans watched the game from the stands and it started well for Celtic when they went 1-0 up through Callum McGregor, a good one on one save from Barkas keeps the Hoops 1-0 up and then Edouard should have made it two when Ryan Christie’s cross met the Frenchman’s head perfectly – but he headed wide.

After that, West Ham took control and never really looked back.

Celtic’s defence was all over the place, Soro was allowing easy traffic through the area of the pitch he was supposed to be covering and Barkas was worse than a man short the more the first half wore on.

Celtic put out a younger team for most of the second half and they didn’t do themselves justice at all. Ryan Christie pulled it back to 3-2 before West Ham would go and stick another three past us.

West Ham are a good side, but even in a friendly, Celtic should be much more competitive.

Celtic head to Denmark on Wednesday night in hope rather than expectation.

Sutton has blamed the board for the state of Celtic as he imposed Dominic McKay to get the wheels in motion – and fast.


  1. They haven’t allowed sevco to catch up they’ve allowed them to overtake us and nothing is going to change as long as we are run by DD and this incompetent boardroom.

  2. Big Sutton is 100% right what a joke of a board we have , been a Celtic supporter for over 55 years the booing of Griff was a disgrace to Celtic Football Club , this new manager deserves our support but I have to say for him to come out and not condemn the the idiots booing Griffiths does not look like a man that has respect for his players ,I’m afraid this is going to be a very long season to be chasing the huns , one last rant why the hell did someone let Broo ie go he is still head and shoulders above anything that was on the park today
