CHRIS SUTTON has selected his team of XI players that have featured heavily during Celtic’s 9IAR run. The former Celtic striker turned commentator released his team for BT Sport ahead of their 9IAR show tomorrow night.

In goals, Fraser Forster has pipped Craig Gordon to the gloves. In front of The Great Wall, a back four consisting of Kieran Tierney, Christopher Jullien, Virgil Van Dijk and Mikael Lustig.

A three in midfield consisting of three Celtic stalwarts, Callum McGregor is joined by the only two men remaining from the first title of the run back in 2012 – Scott Brown and James Forrest.

A front three comprising Leigh Griffiths, Odsonne Edouard and Moussa Dembele makes up the XI, even if there are a few notable absences.

There should be notable mentions for Tom Rogic, Scott Sinclair, Victor Wanyama, Dedryck Boyata and Emilio Izaguirre as well as Craig Gordon.

Either way, it is a tremendous team that had they all played together, it would have been a force to be reckoned with on the European stage.
