BASEL great Beni Huggel has revealed that supporters of the Swiss club still haven't forgotten Chris Sutton's late missed sitter for Celtic in a Champions League qualifier 18 years on.

Sutton had a chance to send the Parkhead club through to the lucrative group stages of Europe's premier club competition in injury-time in the second leg of a third qualifying round tie in 2002.

The ball broke to the Englishman on the edge of Basel's penalty box at St Jacob Park - and he fired a shot just wide of the right post.

The double header finished 3-3 on aggregate, but Martin O'Neill's side were eliminated by Christian Gross's team on the away goals rule.

Sutton would go on to net for the Scottish champions' against Blackburn and Stuttgart during their unforgettable run to the UEFA Cup final that season.

But Huggel has told how Basel fans still remember the striker, who is now an outspoken media pundit, for his miss at the end of their epic double header with Celtic.

“There was a striker in the Celtic side who missed a shot at goal in the 90th minute of the second leg,” he said.

“Everybody in Basel knows his name to this day! It was Chris Sutton. He should have scored and sent his team through. You can still watch it on You Tube.”
