Former Celtic centre-forward Chris Sutton joined The Daily Record’s Craig Swan on a recent edition of the Record Celtic podcast where they discussed all of the latest Celtic news, and Sutton spent some time talking about The Hoops’ form over the last week.
Before last Thursday’s UEFA Europa League group stage clash with Lille, it may be fair to say that Celtic had been on a dismal run of form, winning just two of their 12 games to take place in the period beginning with their 2-0 Premiership loss in the Old Firm derby in mid-October.
However, the Glasgow club may have started to turn a corner, as they managed to pick up a 3-2 win over Lille in what was their final Europa League fixture of the 2020/21 campaign before earning a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock on Sunday.
Sutton addressed the Hoops’ potential turn in form during this recent edition of the Record Celtic podcast and the pundit shared that he thinks this will have lifted the dressing room heading into the 2019/20 SFA Cup Final versus Heart of Midlothian on Sunday.
Sutton said: “I think the mood will, no doubt, feel a little bit better within the dressing room. I think that Neil Lennon will be feeling a tiny bit of relief with the performance against Lille and then backing it up, to some extent, against Kilmarnock.”
Are you confident that Celtic have turned a corner?
TIF Thoughts on what Chris Sutton had to say about this potential dressing room boost…
Given how poor their form was before last Thursday’s win over Lille, perhaps it’s understandable why Sutton feels that Celtic’s positive results in their last two games will have lifted the dressing room atmosphere at Parkhead.
Hopefully, for the Glasgow club, they can build on this form in Sunday’s clash with Hearts, as getting the job done at Hampden Park and earning some silverware could provide an even bigger morale boost to Celtic’s squad, which could then help the club to build up a head of steam as they approach their second Old Firm clash of the 2020/21 campaign in January.
