Ex-Celtic striker Chris Sutton is not one to hide his emotions when commenting on his former club, and he was certainly showing where his loyalties lie when co-commentating on the Lazio game for BT Sport.
The former player was shouting and yelling like a true Hoops supporter when Olivier Ntcham slotted home the last-minute winner in Rome last night:

Sutton is one of the few former players on TV who stick up for Celtic and Scottish football in general in his role as a pundit, and his passion for the club was certainly there for all to see yesterday.
He understands the importance of success in Europe for the club. Last night’s win was their third consecutive victory in the Europa League; the most they have managed since they reached the UEFA Cup final in 2003 when Sutton was still playing for the team.
