Chris Sutton seemed pretty bowled over by his trip to watch Celtic play in Copenhagen, judging by a tweet he posted just hours after full-time.
The former Hoops forward was on BT Sport duty as he watched Neil Lennon’s men take an away goal advantage back to Glasgow after a hard-fought 1-1 draw.
The Englishman had his fair share to say during the match, but he kept things brief in the aftermath as he praised Copenhagen as a football club and also a city.
Sutton quoted a tweet from the Danes thanking Celtic for their first leg visit, saying: “Classy club, beautiful city”.
Classy club, beautiful city 👏👏 https://t.co/yePzRXImYr

Sutton is right, Copenhagen was a great venue for Celtic
Last night’s game was really what European competition should be all about.
It may not have had world-class players in every position, or the glamour of Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Liverpool.
But it was a fierce contest between two champions, played out in front of a raucous, sold-out crowd in a lovely arena.
It is no surprise that UEFA chose to highlight the pre-match displays from both supports with a tweet on their official Europa League feed.
And the great thing about last night? We get to do it all again in less than a week’s time.
Celtic Park will be rocking by 8pm next Thursday, with a large Copenhagen support likely to descend on the east end of Glasgow too.
The match will be even more frantic, nervy and explosive with it being a second leg – especially when everything is so tight after the last night’s clash.
We do have the advantage going into the match. But we know, from our Cluj endeavours earlier on this season, that a 1-1 away draw isn’t quite as good a result as it’s often portrayed to be.
It’s going to be some night. That much is for sure.
