Sutton causes Celtic concern

Celtic FC striker Chris Sutton will miss the Group F match against FC Shakhtar Donetsk with a chest injury.
Celtic FC striker Chris Sutton looks set to miss next Tuesday's UEFA Champions League match against FC Shakhtar Donetsk in Glasgow after suffering a chest injury.

Wednesday withdrawal
The 31-year-old former English international was taken off as a precaution during Wednesday night's 3-2 home defeat by Aberdeen FC, but a scan on Thursday confirmed he had strained a muscle and could be sidelined for several weeks.

'Big blow'
Manager Martin O'Neill said: "We're obviously very disappointed as this is a big blow, but it's one we'll all have to recover from." Celtic have lost all three Group F games so far, and need a win against the Ukrainian side to keep their European hopes alive.
