Ange Postecoglou ‘prioritising’ Hibs vs Celtic league clash claims Sutton as he reacts to Euro line-up

CHRIS SUTTON reckons Ange Postecoglou is prioritising Celtic’s clash with Hibs this weekend as he reacted to the team news ahead of the match with Bodo/Glimt.

The former Parkhead striker explained his feeling that the host of changes to the team may have come as a result of the 3-1 loss in Glasgow in the first-leg.

But he also insisted Celtic have enough in the rotated line-up to progress if they perform to their capabilities in Norway.

Skipper Callum McGregor, Josip Juranovic, Jota, Liel Abada, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Reo Hatate all start on the bench for the Europa Conference League tie.

Giving his opinion on the team news, Sutton said on BT Sport: “I think the truth of the team selection is Ange Postecoglou is looking ahead to the weekend and the game against Hibs and prioritising that.

“The best centre-half out Carter-Vickers, the best midfielder and captain out Callum McGregor, and the best two wingers at the club Jota and Abada aren’t playing.

“They are on the bench and have the possibility of coming on but he has not gone full hit here – this isn’t the strongest team.

“It’s still a strong team, the club improved the squad in January and it’s a team capable of winning the game.”
