Chris Sutton claims Celtic were “not fantastic” in their win over Hamilton on Saturday afternoon.
Neil Lennon’s team returned after the international break and managed a narrow 1-0 away victory against Hamilton.
James Forrest’s fourth-minute goal was the difference between the teams, as he put in a cross from Mohamed Elyounoussi on his debut.
It means that the Bhoys now have five wins from their opening five league games and the defence of their Scottish Premiership crown is off to a great start.
They are now six points clear on second-placed Rangers, who face third-placed Livingston later on Saturday.
Ex-Celtic striker claims his former side were nowhere near their best at the weekend, but ultimately they got the result.
“Celtic not fantastic on the plastic but an important 3 points,” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Celtic weren’t at their dazzling best against Hamilton, but it was another three points and they are the type of results that champions so often get.
Forrest once again proved his importance with a deciding goal and he’s a massive figure at Parkhead.
He’s now played 13 games across all competitions this campaign, scoring seven goals and suppling five assists in return.
Lennon saw his side pick up three points in the league and they can now turn their attention to Thursday night when they travel to French side Rennes in the Europa League group stages.
