Chris Sutton Comments On Celtic Midfield Situation After Star Pair Are Benched

Chris Sutton has commented on Celtic‘s midfield situation after Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham were benched for their hammering of Kilmarnock this afternoon.

The BT Sport pundit was impressed with Brendan Rodgers’ men comfortably beating Killie at Celtic Park to go top of the Scottish Premiership.

Prior to the game, the Rugby Park outfit were top – with their midweek victory coming with both Celtic and Rangers failing to win.

But today’s 5-1 victory for Celtic showed the difference in class between the teams.

And, for Sutton, it showed that Rodgers has a little problem when it comes to who plays for him in midfield.

Brown and Ntcham have been mainstays in midfield for him over the last two seasons, but the midfield trio of Callum McGregor, Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic have impressed of late.

Their performance today was just the latest in a line of quality displays.

And Sutton believes that should lead to doubts about where Brown and Ntcham fit in:

Brown and Ntcham both started against Motherwell in midweek after both having spells on the sidelines with injury.

But that game ended 1-1, with Celtic failing to make their dominance in possession count.

Today was totally different though as the Hoops blew Steve Clarke’s Killie away.
