It’s been a difficult season for Celtic so far, but we’re really turning a corner. Brendan Rodgers’ men appear to have gotten past the worst of their form, at least in the Scottish top flight.

We’re now comfortably in the race at the top of the table, and it’s looking good as far as our recent form is concerned.

However, Chris Sutton isn’t entirely satisfied. He’s taken aim at Celtic’s European form, which has been, admittedly, not great as of late.

Speaking as a part of BT Sport coverage, Sutton said: “I don’t understand the Celtic fans who want pure domestic success over European competition…They are regressing in Europe”.

However, he did add a reason for us to be optimistic, stating: “But, what I would say, the form they have shown in the last couple of games, they are going into the game on Thursday in the best place they’ve been all season”.

Sutton is, clearly, referring to our European struggles as of late, and we must admit, we have been disappointing. However, what he is failing to recognise is the importance of domestic competition. If we take our foot off the gas, even for a moment, we may not even quality for those competitions.

We arguably took it easy at the start of this season, and that’s left us playing catch-up over the last few weeks. So, it’s a very difficult balance to strike.

As he adds, though, our win at the weekend should stand us in very good stead ahead of our tie with RB Leipzig on Thursday. A big win could change our fortunes.

Thoughts?
