BT Sport gush over Celtic with Chris Sutton themed message

The BT Sport cameras will be back at Celtic Park this evening as Neil Lennon’s men aim to make it to the last 16 of the Europa League.

Standing between us and that round is sturdy Copenhagen – who gave us a tough examination in a 1-1 first leg draw last week.

At this stage of the competition, there are no bad teams. But there weren’t any in our group either – even though we took a remarkable 13 points from our first five games.

Genuine Serie A title contenders Lazio couldn’t even grab a point from their two games against us – and it’s that angle that BT Sport have chosen to pick on as they preview tonight’s game.

The account, which seems to be pretty fond of Celtic at present, took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to post some key facts about our win in Rome.

They posted the video of Olivier Ntcham’s historic goal and said: “To put how impressive this win was: Lazio are currently second in Serie A, one point off Juventus. Lazio won 11 domestic games in a row following this result.

“Hopefully the Bhoys can put Chris Sutton in a similar mood tonight.”

The former Celtic striker was clearly a fan of the message too as he decided to retweet it to his followers.

Celtic have made a lot of recent memories on BT Sport

The tweet from the broadcasters is a timely reminder of a glorious moment in our club’s recent history.

The truth is that the Europa League has been no secondary competition for us this season. It’s given us some unforgettable memories.

From our impressive draw in Rennes (which now seems an average result in comparison) to the double over Lazio and even the draw in Copenhagen last week.

If it was all to come crashing down tonight there would be immense disappointment. Anger maybe.

But this year’s Europa League will be remembered fondly whatever happens. By both the Celtic support, and BT, it seems.
