Sutton said Ladbrokes Premiership champions Celtic had splashed out on expensive "disco lights" but failed to make the right kind of signings to bolster the squad bossed by Brendan Rodgers.

Celtic will next face either Latvians Spartaks Jurmala or Lithuanian outfit Suduva for a place in the Europa League group stage. "I've always said we needed to strengthen (in the transfer window) and hopefully we can do that now".
