Chris Sutton is gearing up for an unusual European appointment in Glasgow.
Celtic Park and European matches are usually accompanied by dark nights under the lights as the hoops take on a foreign challenge.
A unique set of circumstances have led to a 3.30pm kick off for today’s match with Ferencvaros but after being locked out for over a year around 50,000 Celtic fans are expected to be at the match.
Big European afternoon in Paradise. Looking forward to covering the must win Europa League game for Celtic against Ferencvaros live on air 3pm @btsportfootball ?

BT Sport have exclusive coverage of today’s match but as noon approached weren’t giving much away about their team covering the match.
Paul Lambert and Neil Lennon were in the studio for the 4-0 defeat from Bayer Leverkusen, a year ago Lennon had first hand experience of Ferencvaros as he sent out a team without strikers that lost 2-1 in a Champions League qualifier.
After losing their opening matches to Real Betis and Bayer Leverkusen Celtic need to win today’s match to avoid a repeat of last season’s embarrassing campaign under Lennon where they went into the final match with one point and 17 goals conceded.
