Neil Lennon’s men looked in decent shape to progress against the Romanian champions after last week’s 1-1 draw away from home, but a shambolic defensive display at Celtic Park saw the Scots eventually lose 4-3 on the night, 5-4 on aggregate.

Of course, by not qualifying for the playoff round – never mind the group stages – of the Champions League, Celtic will indeed miss out on a much-needed cash-injection – but is Sutton right?
Will most of the Tierney fee be gobbled up as a result of Cluj’s famous victory in Glasgow?
