BT Sport’s Chris Sutton and Darrell Currie have left many Celtic supporters confused with their picks for the League Cup Team of the Week.
The pair post a weekly Team of the Week on Twitter, with the focus of the most recent team being from those involved in the latest round of the Scottish League Cup.
However, to the surprise of these Hoops supporters, this week’s team featured no Celtic players but three from Dunfermline, whom Neil Lennon’s side beat 2-1 to progress to the quarter-final.

While it was certainly not the most emphatic performance against Dunfermline, it does seem surprising to see three players who suffered defeat in the side while none of the Hoops were included.
At the end of the day, however, it is only a BT Sport Team of the Week feature, and I’m sure Lennon and his side will not lose any sleep over being excluded.
